Sharing Crowdfunding Experiences
Crowdfunding and Peer to Peer Lending is a constantly evolving, innovative market. There is considerable opportunity within property and real estate crowdfunding, for both fundraisers who want to grow their property businesses and investors who wish to diversify their portfolios.
Many property professionals have already embraced crowdfunding, being early adopters. Below, some share their views of crowdfunding, their experience of working with Simple Crowdfunding and what it has done for their property businesses.
