Presentation: The Inevitable Rise of Crowdfunding

Presentation: The Inevitable Rise of Crowdfunding by Richard Swart, Alternative Finance Scholar at UC Berkeley.

This presentation was given by Dr. Richard Swart from UC Berkeley, who is an expert in crowdfunding regulation. The crowdfunding market opportunity is $4 Trillion in revenue and $410 Billion in profits. In terms of initiatives, Berkeley recently signed a partnership with Tsinghua University to get more insight into the China market, and they believe the key to continued growth in China over the next generation will be financial innovation. Berkeley will also be creating a forum where the top schools can interact on real estate crowdfunding. Furthermore, the Journal of Disruptive Finance will be launched, and Berkeley will be contributing to that journal.
