?The speed and scale of growth in the alternative finance sector is staggering. We are particularly excited that equity crowdfunding has become a significant part of venture funding in the UK because this is good for early stage companies and SMEs that need financing to grow, and good for investors who want exposure to high risk, high return investments.?
