Crowdfunding Campaigns Closing in Q2 2020 Down by 15% BUT More Investors Backing Crowdfunding than in Two Previous Quarters

Quote:

“The facts confirm what everybody would expect in the current environment: it has been a difficult quarter for Equity Crowdfunding. There were less deals but the crowd stuck at home during lockdown is responding to the situation and still actively investing in crowdfunding.
