"We are delighted to report continued strong revenue growth from an increasing number of revenue streams. The diversified product portfolio of The Funding Network? has delivered promising results in the first six months since its launch in March and is creating real value for investors and entrepreneurs. Clearly there is huge potential to further commercialise our transaction volume. The consistent growth in revenue we've been seeing in 2015 gives us the foundation to do just that while we continue to innovate at the forefront of online funding," said Korstiaan Zandvliet, co-founder and CEO of Symbid Corp.

Symbid ? the financial technology brand behind The Funding Network? ? this week warned that crowdfunding platforms and investors are too preoccupied by interest rates and ignoring the risks. One of the world?s first crowdfunding platforms, Symbid has launched a media campaign in cooperation with Marco Behling of Catena Investments and Prof. Armin Schwienbacher of Univ. Lille and SKEMA Business School titled ?Higher Rates, Higher Risks.? The campaign highlights three key challenges faced by the maturing crowdfunding industry: a lack of transparency; unsustainable interest rates; and a limited understanding of risk. It also outlines three potential solutions and why the present market opportunity for SME loans dictates that we act sooner rather than later.

Symbid, the financial technology brand behind The Funding Network, announced on Tuesday a strategic partnership with DNOB, the new funding platform for entrepreneurs led by Hans Biesheuvel, former chairman of MKB Nederland (Dutch SME Trade Association) and a highly influential voice in Dutch economic affairs.

DNOB will connect to The Funding Network, operated by Symbid, which has to date guided over 400 small businesses to over $330 million in funding from both alternative and traditional sources, including equity and loan crowdfunding, bank loans, venture capital and angel investors.
