Crowdfunding to Surpass VC in 2016

Fundraising for early stage companies is fundamentally changing with the emergence of equity crowdfunding. The crowdfunding industry has seen massive growth over the last few years and is projected to increase 2x to $35B by 2015. Fundraising is shifting from board rooms to deal rooms online with the passing of the JOBS Act in 2012. Now websites such as Crowdfunder and AngelList allow accredited investors anywhere to gain access to top VC backed deals and invest for as little as $5,000.
