Crowdfunding: A Legitimate Financing Option to Grow Your Business

About the Episode

The financial market collapse of 2008 resulted in tougher standards and regulations for the nation’s largest banks, making it more difficult in many cases for small-business owners to secure the funds they needed to grow their businesses. Since the financial crisis, crowdfunding has emerged as a real—and credible—alternative to banks, private equity, and venture capital.

This edition of Deal Talk delves into the details of what crowdfunding is, its advantages over traditional funding sources, and how the application process works. Mr. Markus Lampinen, CEO of Crowd Valley, Inc., gives an in-depth discussion on an option that could help you raise the capital you need.
