European Government Funds May Get Distributed by European Crowdfunding Platforms

Crowdfund Insider | | Jul 26, 2021

European government funding - European Government Funds May Get Distributed by European Crowdfunding PlatformsRecently, a report was published regarding the European Commission distributing European (ESIF) funds through European crowdfunding platforms. Obviously, if this occurs it will be a boon for both platforms and issuers.

The report was written by Karsten Wenzlaff, Ana Odorovic and Ronald Kleverlaan, along with consulting firm PwC. The authors are well known in the European Fintech and crowdfunding sectors.

Crowdfund Insider connected with the authors of the report. Wenzlaff told CI:

“The Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) are the main instrument for the European Union to create long-term growth and cohesion and achieve the policy objectives – it is a huge budget which has increased again for the next budget period 2021-2027. The way it works is that each country gets a certain amount and then the so-called Managing Authorities (MAs) are in charge of distributing the funds according to guidelines by the European Commission. These Managing Authorities are often Ministries for Infrastructure or Development Agency. The vast amount of funds is distributed through grants.”

Wenzlaff explained that the breakthrough of this report is because, for the first time, the European Commission has created templates for the collaboration between the MAs and the crowdfunding platforms. But it has much more relevance beyond that because other public authorities on the regional and the national level can use these templates to collaborate with crowdfunding platforms.

Wenzlaff said they also consider financial instruments, including equity investments and loans. Since usually grants are given to companies, this is also a huge step, because the introduction of financial instruments in public support means that the private investors can be paired with public money, the public authorities can support the private investor directly through credit risk guarantees or indirectly through co-investing.

The report provides an overview of the current status of the crowdfunding industry in Europe and the potential to use crowdfunding platforms by public authorities to realize the ambitions of the Cohesion Policy and provide funding to projects through crowdfunding platforms. A recent blog post by Kleverlaan outlines the relatively new European Crowdfunding Regulation (ECSP) stating that it should boost the development of crowdfunding across the EU. The ECSP allows platforms to operate across the EU based on a single set of rules, under the supervision of the financial regulator in each Member State. The new rules are expected to become actionable in November of 2021.

The European Cohesion Policy is described as one of the key instruments of the European Union with a substantial budget of €373 billion. The report touts the opportunity for ESIF Managing Authorities (MAs) to take advantage of crowdfunding platforms to channel resources towards segments of the market that may be underserved yet important to the European economy.

Kleverlaan explained that the new ECSP regulation is a catalyst for enabling the European Commission and the Managing Authorities to develop models to work together with crowdfunding platforms, due to the harmonized legal framework.

“We have identified several case studies in which public authorities already implemented a procurement process to select a crowdfunding platform for a project of several years in which match funding instruments were implemented.”

When asked if a managing authority (the government) investing funds in a private firm is the best use of public money, Kleverlaan said they have identified four different blueprint models of how MAs can start working with crowdfunding platforms, each with advantages and disadvantages.

  • Providing grants outside a crowdfunding campaign
  • Investing through a lending-based crowdfunding platform
  • Providing guarantees to investors
  • Operating a crowdfunding platform

Request for Comments by Oct 26, 2021: Canadian securities regulators propose streamlined capital raising option for Canadian-listed issuers

CSA | Jul 28, 2021

Raising capital burden reduction - Request for Comments by Oct 26, 2021:  Canadian securities regulators propose streamlined capital raising option for Canadian-listed issuersVancouver – The Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) is proposing to introduce a new prospectus exemption for issuers listed on a Canadian stock exchange that is expected to provide a more efficient way for them to raise capital.

“We’ve heard from market participants that the time and cost to prepare a short form prospectus is a barrier to capital raising for many smaller issuers,” said Louis Morisset, CSA Chair and President and CEO of the Autorité des marchés financiers. “The proposal would reduce regulatory burden, while maintaining robust investor protection.”

The proposed Listed Issuer Financing Exemption is expected to reduce costs for issuers raising smaller amounts of capital through the public markets. It would also allow smaller issuers greater access to retail investors and provide retail investors with a broader choice of investments.

The prospectus exemption would not be available to issuers that have been a reporting issuer for less than 12 months, nor to issuers that have not filed all continuous disclosure documents required under Canadian securities legislation. Eligible issuers would file a short offering document and the securities they issue would be freely tradeable. Under the proposed exemption, issuers could raise up to the greater of $5 million or 10 per cent of the issuer’s market capitalization, to a maximum of $10 million, annually.

See:

The proposed exemption is in response to comments received from CSA Consultation Paper 51-404 Considerations for Reducing Regulatory Burden for Non-Investment Fund Reporting Issuers. It also reflects research on capital raising requirements in other countries and other stakeholder feedback about the prospectus system.

CSA Notice and Request for Comment Proposed Amendments to National Instrument 45-106 Prospectus Exemptions to introduce the Listed Issuer Financing Exemption is available on CSA members' websites. Comments should be submitted in writing by October 26, 2021.

The CSA, the council of the securities regulators of Canada’s provinces and territories, co-ordinates and harmonizes regulation for the Canadian capital markets.

Goldman Sachs Files Defi ETF Application

Bitcoin.com  | Sergio Goschenko | Jul 27, 2021

Goldman Sachs  - Goldman Sachs Files Defi ETF Application

Goldman Sachs, one of the biggest banking institutions in the world, has filed an application to offer an Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) linked to the performance of decentralized finance (defi) companies. The instrument, if approved, would help institutions and retail investors gain exposure to defi assets with the help of a regulated bank like Goldman Sachs.

Goldman Sachs Proposes Defi ETF

Goldman Sachs, one of leading commercial banks in the world, has introduced an application to the SEC to offer a defi-linked ETF. The defined ETF is called “Goldman Sachs Innovate Defi and Blockchain Equity ETF,” and it would seek to provide exposure to these technologies for regulated institutions. The performance of the fund would be linked to the Solactive Blockchain Technology Performance-Index.

See:  10 Highlights From Goldman Sachs’ June 2021 Digital Asset Thought Piece

This index follows a portfolio of tech industries that are invested in blockchain technologies. The index includes companies like Nokia, Alphabet, IBM, Microsoft, and Overstock. This would be the first ETF that aims to capitalize on the popularity that the defi sector has experienced this year. As Bitcoin.com News reported in June, Goldman Sachs has been courting the cryptocurrency sector recently, having partnered with Galaxy Digital to provide bitcoin futures products.

This filing is just another piece of evidence that indicates big banks are now interested in bringing their services and structures to the cryptocurrency market. While many of these disregarded cryptocurrency in the beginning, they are now focused on integrating investment products that are designed to bring traditional investors to the crypto sphere.

Goldman Sachs released a note on the state of the cryptocurrency market earlier this month when it stated that Ether could surpass Bitcoin as the most important crypto because the former has the “highest real use potential.”

This view of the crypto ecosystem could have fueled the ETF application made by the investment bank, focused on following defi and blockchain-based companies.

FrontFundr secures another round of funding on its own equity crowdfunding platform

Equity crowdfunding in Canada - FrontFundr secures another round of funding on its own equity crowdfunding platform

FrontFundr has secured $1.78 million CAD, through its own equity crowdfunding platform, as it looks to scale and bring more awareness to the crowdfunding model.

The funding came from 411 investors and brings FrontFundr’s total funding to date to $5.48 million, with the startup having raised all its capital through its own platform.

FrontFundr is using the financing to build on what it calls positive business momentum, as regulators have recently made it easier for startups to raise equity crowdfunding capital.

See:  NCFA Response to the Modernizing Ontario’s Capital Markets Consultation Taskforce

Securities regulation in Canada, which equity crowdfunding falls under, is regulated on a provincial and territorial level, with no federal securities body. This has led to a patchwork of rules that change region to region.

Recently, the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA), the council of all the securities regulators that coordinates and harmonizes regulation, has released new rules making it easier for companies across the country to raise equity crowdfunding capital.

“[There was a] patchwork of different rules, and they weren’t harmonized,” said Peter-Paul Van Hoeken, the founder and CEO of Silver Maple Ventures, the parent company of FrontFundr.

“That certainly has helped to create confusion in the market and definitely has been a challenge to growing the market,” he added. “Now, that’s out of the way.”

FrontFundr was founded in 2013, shortly before crowdfunding investment was legalized federally in Canada in 2015. The startup’s stated mission is to democratize the private sector investment model by offering companies an alternative to venture and private equity investing. To that end, Van Hoeken says FrontFundr has had to spend much of its time marketing the idea of equity crowdfunding to Canadian companies and investors, in addition to fighting for more harmonized regulations.

“We’re missionaries to spread the word around equity crowdfunding, in general,” said Van Hoeken. “We’re the leading platform in Canada, which is great, but that means that you also have to do most of the heavy lifting.”

“Creating all that awareness has been a huge job for our company in the last five years,” the CEO said. “Not even awareness around FrontFundr, but more like the awareness that, ‘hey, this is an alternative way for you as a company to raise capital, and, as investors, you think you can only invest by Wealthsimple and public stocks, you can also invest in early stage companies from the very beginning.”

“We have seen the immense value and impact that harmonized crowdfunding rules have had in the US and the UK, and so we are really excited to work with Canadian companies and investors to help create the same sort of environment over here,” he said.

Tiger vs. SoftBank: Inside the investing playbooks that upended Silicon Valley

Protocol | Biz Carson | Jul 12, 2021

Tiger Global vs softbank - Tiger vs. SoftBank: Inside the investing playbooks that upended Silicon Valley

The two firms invested the most money into startups so far in 2021. But how they do it is completely different.

Nylas CEO Gleb Polyakov had been following the Silicon Valley playbook for raising money: meet with firms; deal with associates, then partners; and try to clinch funding for his developer-tools startup.

Then Tiger Global handed over a term sheet.

When Polyakov alerted other firms interested in investing in his hot API maker to Tiger's offer, one of the more traditional firms he had been talking to abandoned the deal.

There's an "old boys' club" and a "process" Silicon Valley VC firms like to follow, said Polyakov. "And if you don't follow the process they get very upset and very insulted, which seems a little silly."

The last firm to turn the tables on Sand Hill Road before Tiger was SoftBank. The Japanese conglomerate had raised a $100 billion fund to invest in tech startups, and its "capital cannon," as Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi called it, became a thing entrepreneurs wanted behind them in support, not facing them as a threat. The investment strategy set off an arms race of firms raising larger and larger growth funds to compete in deals.

See:  Tiger Global: what happens when ‘normal’ returns?

Now in 2021, there's been an explosion in venture capital investment as all that cash has sought places to land. The first half of 2021 shattered records with $288 billion invested in startups globally.

Leading the pack is Tiger Global Management, which has emerged as this year's funding jockey, setting a blistering pace with venture firms racing to keep up. Tiger Global has invested in over 120 startups already this year, according to an analysis by PitchBook for Protocol, and shows no signs of slowing down with a $6.7 billion fund announced in April and a rumored $10 billion fund on its heels.

"Their strategy right now seems to be hinging a lot on 'Money is still cheap.' The public markets are still accepting these unicorns and VC-backed companies and sustaining those high valuations that they're seeing in the private markets," said PitchBook analyst Kyle Stanford. "Sometime last year [Tiger Global] saw the opportunity to just put as much money to work in the market right now as they can, and that's what they did."

SoftBank, meanwhile, has returned to the market after the WeWork deal's fallout cooled outside investors' interest in its Vision Fund 2. The firm rebounded after mega-hits like Coupang and DoorDash, and is now as much of a player as when it first shook up the venture capital world. SoftBank recently upped the size of Vision Fund 2 to $30 billion of its own money and has made 90 investments from the fund.

See:  SEC has an active and ongoing investigation on Softbank ‘Nasdaq whale’

Tiger Global and SoftBank are now the two largest investors when it comes to dollars invested in startups for 2021. But the approach to how the two deploy capital is incredibly different.

Kings and nerds

SoftBank is a kingmaker, led by internet emperor Masayoshi "Masa" Son. All of the investments involve a pitch to the chief of SoftBank, who is said to back founders who inspire him and reward CEOs who have the biggest, most audacious plans.

Tiger Global doesn't have the same kind of frontman. Don't try Googling it: Its website presents all of three pages to the public internet, hiding the rest for investors. It prefers to stay out of the press. Instead, it's known for studying its prey and then pouncing on a deal. Its relentless speed is a result of having done much of the diligence on an investment before it even approaches a company. Once it's invested, it remains largely hands-off — a big contrast to SoftBank, which will take board seats and hasn't been afraid to switch up management when needed.

Look Back 2013:  Borderless Investments: The Top US Venture Capitalists Investing in Canadian Startups

What they have in common — and what makes them both symbols of this golden age of venture investing — is being open-checkbook investors who aren't afraid of pouring hundreds of millions into a startup with a desire to hold that position into the public markets. As such, they've both shaken up the venture capital market in 2021 and are the new forces driving deal speed and price in late-stage investing.
