Equity Crowdfunding has not reached its potential largely due to the imposition of outdated regulatory structures to handle the trust factor.

"Having companies with AFSLs interposed between the company and the investors would be like saying to an Uber user that they must book a ride through a third party,' he says.

Most seekers of investors use serendipity instead of investor aggregation. Serendipity has a lot lower chance of success. This article explains why.

Every village, town and city has a strong desire to support innovation and be a growing place for its present and future citizens. However there is little understanding of the radical changes that are underway now and in the future and how they will affect them. Unless the trends are embraced the village, town or city will find itself in decline. This video put some of this in context.
