The key to successful equity crowdfunding is realizing what you are in fact doing – selling. Every successful equity crowdfunding effort is in fact not about “funding” but about marketing, advertising and ultimately selling your offering. The regulations around marketing your offering vary depending on what your offering is, where you’re physically offering it, and who can participate in the offering.

How can the crowdfunding actors converge to initiate a dialogue with the stakeholders and allow the development of crowdfunding?

A case for a coherent approach to crowdfunding making it easier, more transparent and trustworthy, to facilitate citizens’ cross-border investments.

Talk #3 – A liquid global crowd wth instant scalability
Managing Director Accenture
How to access a liquid global crowd and address instant scalability or specific needs of critical skills. The change in technology landscape and the need of agility to face the market challenges – according to the concept of “liquid workforce” – are two key drivers for a successful digital transformation. In such a context, the crowdsourcing allows organizations to expand their workforce rapidly and at scale by including external skills and resources. But only with the right mindset change and management skills, organizations could gain benefits from this technique. Accenture is embracing this technique, allowing to timely access a liquid global crowd and address instant scalability or specific needs of critical skills.
