The potential for Crowdfunding lies outside the USA. Emerging markets that have been cut off from the capital markets stand at a point in time to access billions of dollars of capital that will fundamentally challenge the United States' ability to stay competitive. Investors seeking alpha will be diversifying into emerging markets as innovation and technology moves from the money capitals to the idea capitals. Jason Best & Sherwood Neiss wrote the framework to legalize debt and equity crowdfunding. They are considered the fathers of the Crowdfund Investing movement. In their work for the World Bank and the US State Department they have traveled to over 25 countries. They have analyzed the landscape and potential for crowdfunding globally and will share their insights, key findings and learning’s with the crowd.
