Crowdfunding is here to stay. Its transformational effect is already being felt by small businesses and fast-growing start-ups across the world.  The consequences of accepting or thwarting it are incredibly consequential for the economy, particularly small businesses that are the engine of growth and employment in countries such as Canada, the US and the UK. A Canada-wide harmonisation of innovation friendly laws and regulations is now needed to make crowdfunding a valuable part of the country's financial ecosystem.  – Bundeep Singh Rangar, CEO, Fineqia
