Crowdfunding: It’s the New Financial Revolution!

You have probably heard a lot about crowdfunding in the media. Would you like to find out more about it?

We are running our third Pacific event in Auckland to explore the phenomenon of Crowdfunding – 21st Century Finance. You will hear from world experts and key players in the New Zealand crowdfunding scene.

“If you think that crowdfunding just means smaller companies that launch games and device projects on platforms like Kickstarter, think again. Crowdfunding has now emerged as a viable, scalable alternative to public and private finance.” - Massolution, The Crowdfunding Industry Report 2013

According to Massolution, the crowdfunding market market was estimated to be over $5 Billion in 2014, and it is growing fast. To date NZ crowdfunding platforms have raised over $30M, with half of it raised in the last year.

At this event you will learn about this rapidly emerging form of funding. Full details including the programme are on our event website.
