About a paper in the Journal of Corporate Finance

How can companies benefit from crowd investing? Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in particular often have problems obtaining financing from traditional banks. Crowd investing offers these companies a new opportunity not only to obtain capital, but also to receive support from a large number of investors (e.g. by networking with new business partners or by making suggestions for improving products). Crowdinvesting also provides support to SMEs from the industrial middle class. Our research results illustrate how SMEs can make efficient use of crowd investing in their day-to-day operations.
