The Crowd Valley team has just returned from Rome, where on October 27th the Sapienza University hosted Crowdfuture, Italy’s first crowdfunding conference, which featured a keynote presentation from Crowd Valley’s CEO, Markus Lampinen. The event was curated by Nois3Lab and Twintangibles, whose director Tim Wright was a recent guest on the Everyone Funding Startups podcast.
Widely covered by the Italian media, Crowdfuture was a great success, selling out tickets to over 300 attendees. Markus’ comments about the necessity of creating a crowdfunding ecosystem was also reported by Wired Italy.
The conference covered many aspects of crowdfunding and the impact of the recent Decreto Crescita approved by the Italian government, that amongst other things legalizes equity-based crowdfunding (more about this here and here). Some of the most successful case examples around the world were discussed, highlighting issues and challenges, and offering an insight into the future of this movement.
The full presentation, Crowdfunding – Asset Classes and Crowd Driven Models, is available below.
Markus’ keynote presentation discussed trends in modern finance, the background to the emergence of crowdfunding, and the evidence of macro trends such as the demand for greater democracy and efficiency in the financial sector. It also touched on the future outlook for crowd-driven investment models.
