The last 12 months has seen a steady stream of equity crowdfunding laws and platforms released globally. The UK and Europe are already home to CrowdCube and Seedrs. And the JOBS Act in America is opening the floodgates there as well. In New Zealand, equity crowdfunding will become possible due to a law change coming into effect on April 1, 2014. Australia has also recently begun work on their crowdfunding legislation.
With all this activity going on, I sent through some questions to two new players: Fundakiwi, from New Zealand, and Squareknot, from Australia to see what they were up to, and what they thought the future looked like.
