Equity crowdfunding is the process whereby people (the ‘crowd’) invest in an early-stage unlisted company in exchange for shares in that company. A shareholder has partial ownership of a company and stands to profit should the company do well. The opposite is also true, so if the company fails investors can lose some, or all, of their investment.
Previously only viable to wealthy individuals and venture capitalists, equity crowdfunding platforms have helped democratise the investment process by opening the door to a larger pool of potential investors dubbed “the crowd”.
