Impending launch for The Place to Crowd, the flagship event of European crowdfunding organized by Financement Participatif France (FPF) on February 14th, under the sponsorship of Mr. Bruno Le Maire, Minister of Economy, Finance and industrial and digital Sovereignty.
More than 500 attendees coming from all over Europe are expected on February 14th in the 104 in Paris to meet, exchange, create partnerships and build tomorrow in the context of the European harmonization of the regulations.
Damien Guermonprez, President of FPF, said:
“The European harmonization of the regulations regarding crowdfunding is a major necessity for the years to come. It is about time the players of the field meet one another to plan the next few years. The Place to Crowd’s objective is to forge a bond in the profession at a European scale and to boost the expansion of the sector!”.
Florence de Maupeou, Executive Director of the association, stated:
“This event is an unmissable meeting for the crowdfunding ecosystem.
