Report Forecasts Total Global Crowdfunding to Reach $34.4 Billion in 2015

North America Remaining the Largest Market and Asia, Outpacing Europe in 2014, in Second Place

After collecting data on 1,250 active crowdfunding platforms (CFPs) worldwide and undertaking significant further research, the results reveal that CFPs raised $16.2 billion in 2014, a 167% increase over the $6.1 billion raised in 2013. North America still accounts for the largest market but 2014 saw Asia overtake Europe, by a small margin. With exponential growth in Asia, Massolution forecasts this lead will increase significantly in 2015 with the delta between Asia and Europe increasing to over $4 Billion. We predict that Europe’s 20.1% of market share in 2014 will decline slightly in 2015 when Europe will account for 18.8% of the worldwide market.

New “Start-up” Crowdfunding Exemptions Adopted in Some Canadian Jurisdictions

AUM Law | Paul Hayward | June 5, 2015

AUM lawThis is the second of our nutshell series on regulatory developments affecting crowdfunding and other online financing portals.

On May 14, 2015, the securities regulatory authorities of British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Québec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia (the participating jurisdictions) announced that they were adopting substantially harmonized registration and prospectus exemptions (the start-up crowdfunding exemptions) to allow start-up and early-stage companies in these jurisdictions to raise up to $500,000 per calendar year through online funding portals.

As explained in the related notice, Multilateral CSA Notice 45-316 Start-up Crowdfunding Registration and Prospectus Exemptions, the exemptions are being implemented by way of local blanket orders on or shortly after the publication of the CSA notice, and will be in effect until May 13, 2020.

The start-up crowdfunding exemptions consist of an exemption from the prospectus requirement (the start- up prospectus exemption) and an exemption from the dealer registration requirement (the start -up registration exemption).
