Jason Best, one of the founders of Crowdfund Capital Advisors and a staunch advocate of investment crowdfunding, recently visited multiple countries in Asia spreading the crowdfunding gospel. During this trip he spent some time in Malaysia, a country that is pushing forward with investment crowdfunding as a method to boost jobs and the economy.
Best shares his regional perspective on the movement noting the discussion has shifted from what is crowdfunding to how do I implement it to boost SME growth?
Best addresses the question about what type of investor should be able to participate in these, at times, risky investments. He also predicts the market, while starting small, will grow dramatically.
He lauds the UK and ASSOB in Australian and states, “the US is running behind”.
