Toby Furnivall, a senior credit analyst, opines - and Nicola wonders who the photographer is!
This week saw the first of a series of breakfasts hosted by Money&Co. for lenders and potential lenders. Held in our Mayfair offices, Nicola Horlick and the Money&Co. team were able to meet the force that makes the crowdfunding business model work – and that's you.
Over coffee, tea and croissants, Nicola and the credit-analysis, marketing and communications team were able to engage with lenders' questions about the site, the credit-rating process, and all manner of issues, from the Money&Co. business model to the macro-economic outlook.
"It was an excellent occasion," said Nicola after the session was over. "We're all about getting people together with business, and that's exactly what this breakfast was."
The next breakfast is on Wednesday, 30th July, and there are still a very few places left. To claim one of the last spots, contact us.
Meanwhile, on the equity side of the crowdfunding fence, CNBC wonders whether crowdfunding is the "new incubator" – the space where businesses can grow.
"As more and more crowdfunding projects go viral, they're capturing the attention of the venture capital community, along with other equity investors," says CNBC.
We completely agree – and have done so for a long time!
