Last, but certainly not least, ECN is the final interviewee from a participating international platform in The University of Cambridge/ Crowdfund Insider series. Our interview follows:
Erin: Why has the European Crowdfunding Network decided to participate in the Cambridge-EY European Alternative Finance Benchmarking Research?
ECN: The European Crowdfunding Network is an international non-profit association acting for an efficient, balanced and transparent crowdfunding eco-system in Europe. Independent data research and analysis is a vital aspect for a professional and well performing market. Independent data research and analysis is a vital aspect for a professional and well performing market. ECN therefore supports this and other research that helps creating transparency and accountability in the European crowdfunding market. Until now there has been no detailed attempt to capture the Pan-European financial crowdfunding market. The earlier study by NESTA and Cambridge for the UK helped to understand the UK market a little better, so it will be good to have a Pan-European picture. I am very interested to find out if the study can identify deeper trends and issues around these segments.
