EquityNet founder and CEO Judd Hollas recently spoke at the Second Annual Crowdfund Global Expo in San Diego, California. The Expo provided attendees with an unparalleled, comprehensive overview of the global crowdfunding industry.
Mr. Hollas was a keynote speaker and presented interactive data that characterizes the types of companies that use crowdfunding in addition to data regarding the activity and interests of angel groups, venture capitalists, and other funding institutions within the crowdfunding industry.
The Second Annual Fintech Global Expo is a deep dive into the innovation occurring within the crowdfunding and overall fintech industry, with new data releases, a press conference for lending fintech analysts and reporters, special sessions devoted to retail investors and much more.
This expo is different from other conferences in that it brings together not only startup and established leaders within the burgeoning fintech industry from the United States, but also introduces groundbreaking international companies who serve some of the largest markets in the world.
Mr. Hollas joined several industry expert speakers to discuss how institutional capital has driven change in the crowdfunding market and how that affects equity crowdfunding. According to industry research by Crowdsourcing.org and the World Bank, crowdfunding generated $16.2 billion in funding transactions in 2014 and will surpass $300 billion in funding transactions by 2025.
