Infographic: How equity crowdfunding has changed the business world

Even though equity crowdfunding has only started in New Zealand within the last month or so it has been taking place in countries such as the US since 2012. With $393 million raised globally through equity crowdfunding in the first quarter of 2014 it is obvious this could have a big impact on New Zealand going forward.

The Infographic below looks at the impact that this form of crowdfunding has had on the international business scene so far.
