Save the date for the 7th ECN Crowdfunding Convention, 18 October 2018, Brussels


On 18 October 2018, ECN will host its annual Crowdfunding Convention “Defining the future of European Crowdfunding Service Providers”, which will take place in Brussels as an adjoint event to FECIF’s Conference taking place on the 17 October 2018.

The main topic of this year’s Convention will be the European Commission’s proposed regulation “European Crowdfunding Service Providers (ECSP) for business”, covering both, lending-based crowdfunding and investment-based crowdfunding. During the event, participants will have a chance to engage in the discussion on how to shape the European Crowdfunding Service Provider Regulation online investments in Europe. Together, we will take a look at the proposal, framed by the realities of the political discourse and options in the EU policy process. We will seek open discourse on the proposal and its possible adaption.

The main questions to be addressed during the Convention:

  1. Why will crowdfunding enable investing in securities, debt and loans as well as real estate and renewable energy beyond 2020?
  2. How is the regulatory framework for crowdfunding and crowd lending moving forward in Europe?
  3. What are the latest opinions and activities of EU policymakers on online access to finance under the Capital Market Union and the Fintech Action Plan?
  4. What are the opportunities for future investments in crowdfunding, alternative finance and digital assets?

The event will also be a great place to network and meet pan-European industry peers, policymakers and stakeholders and contribute to shaping the future of alternative finance.
