iGlobal Forum will have their 5th Real Estate Crowdfunding Summit, taking place in Marina Del Rey, California on Thursday, June 22nd. Real estate crowdfunding has experienced staggering growth, intensifying and evolving rapidly into a multi-billion dollar industry.
From a small personal fundraising platform in 1997, crowdfunding has evolved into a comprehensive validation tool for startups, nonprofit organizations, and corporations. And, it will continue to transform in years to come. In fact, The World Bank reported that the crowdfunding investment market is projected to hit $93 billion by 2025, wherein “the potential size of developing world crowdfunding would represent 1.8 times global venture capital investments.”
Crowdfunding has been growing in popularity over the years. The Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) has taken notice and in partnership with New York University hosted an open dialogue on February 28th, 2017 to discuss challenges, market research, opportunities, and the effects of securities-based crowdfunding on market participants.
The culture around crowdfunding is rapidly maturing. Over the last several years, crowdfunding websites in the United States have been a popular way for artistic enterprises like films or musical products to obtain charitable support. Under recently adopted rules, the general public will have the opportunity to participate in a broader range of early capital raising activities for start-ups and early-stage companies.
