The growing popularity of crowdfunding over the past few years has led to the emergence of several distinct options for entrepreneurs: donation/rewards, debt, and equity based crowdfunding. With very different terms and requirements, it's important to understand the nuances involved with each type of crowdfunding so that entrepreneurs may choose the path most relevant to his/her goals and needs. Join SVForum's panel of crowdfunding experts and learn about:
-Pros and cons of crowdfunding vs. other forms of funding (including VC, professional angels and bank loans).
-Overview of crowdfunding options – type of products, funding size, etc. - and the pros and cons of each option.
-Which types of startups (technology/sector, stage of company or funding, target customers, business models, etc.) are best suited for which types of crowdfunding?
We'll also discuss the JOBS Act, and its effect on different types of crowdfunding.
