Equity crowdfunding is meant to democratise the funding space by opening up a new avenue of fundraising for private companies, as well as be an investment alternative for crowd investors. Inherent risk accompanying potentially higher returns could be mitigated by adopting proven VC methodology in equity crowdfunding.
