The Global Crowdfunding Convention (GCC), created by Ruth Hedges, has formed a partnership with the Launchpad Agency. According to information provided by the agency, Launchpad is now a minority owner in GCC.
“We have been a big part of the crowdfunding ecosystem for many years and are very happy to be partnered with Ruth and now owners of the Global Crowdfunding Convention,” said James Little, CEO of LaunchPad. “Together, and through this amazing event, we will be taking big steps towards helping shape the future of this quickly growing industry.”
“As the first and longest running crowdfunding convention in the world, we have had a very big impact on the growth of this booming industry, and by joining forces with The LaunchPad Agency, we are now set to provide an even better experience for attendees wanting to learn from and network with top crowdfunding industry professionals!”
GCC organizers predict that more than 1200 participants will participate in the event scheduled for this coming October. Hedges explained, “it is estimated that crowdfunding will add at least $65 billion into the global economy in 2016, and with its current growth rate, at least $3.2 trillion by 2020.”
