The crowdfunding word spreads faster and faster. Leading financial media organisation, City AM, is teaming up with the crowdfunding intelligence platform, Another Crowd, to launch an all-day seminar on 28th May at the RAC in London.
Martin Baker, head of communications at Money&Co., and editorial director of Another Crowd, will be co-hosting the event with Harriet Green, deputy features editor of City AM. Nicola Horlick, Money&Co.'s CEO, will make a keynote speech, and other speakers will include: Brian Zhang (policy and operations director, Centre for Alternative Finance, Cambridge Judge Business School), Nicola Horlick (chief executive, Money&Co.), Justin Urquhart Stewart (founder, Seven Investment Management), James Codling (director, Venture Founders), Adam Braggs (chief executive, CrowdneticUK), Julia Groves (chair, UK Crowdfunding Association), and Karen Butler, a senior regulatory lawyer from firm King & Wood Malleson
The seminar will take place from 10am to 4pm, with lunch and networking drinks at close. "We will discuss the different options in investment crowdfunding – from seeding and mezzanine equity investment to high-end equity funding, and moving on to debt capital for more mature small and medium-sized businesses. With its high-profile speakers, this event will bring into sharp focus the fast-growing alternative investment markets, and the attendant legal, regulatory and commercial requirements needed to sustain success," said a City AM spokesman.

Nicola will also be addressing a Barclays Bank client conference in London on digital initiatives this Wednesday.
