Crowd Valley has been invited to advise the European Commission on a regulatory policy and a framework for stimulating growth in the small- to medium-sized enterprise sector (SMEs). Markus from the Crowd Valley team will appear before the European Commission on Monday in Brussels to share his views on the need for a uniform market in Europe and how to improve conditions for SME-led innovation, growth and resourcing.

In many important respects, particularly with regard to securities regulation in relation to crowdfunding, Europe remains highly fragmented. Even with our experience, it remains extremely difficult to navigate the various regulatory regimes in Europe; we suspect that, for an SME, doing so might be nearly impossible. Unification of the crowdfunding market across Europe could create one of the world’s largest markets and help leverage the power of the Internet to move capital and create jobs.
