PRLog - Oct. 23, 2012 - NEW YORK -- NEW YORK, NY - (October 21, 2012) - A capital creation event at United Nations Headquarters on November 14 will allow African delegates to the UN to meet the leading minds in the global crowd funding circuit to explore how crowd funding, which offers a creative alternative to the financing needs of start-ups and small businesses, might assist African economies.

The event has been organized by crowd funding industry leader, The Soho Loft Capital Creation Events (http://www.thesoholoft.com/).

With very few angel investors and venture capitalists in the region, Africa is at the threshold of discovering how crowd funding can provide not just seed capital for business ideas and concepts, but also expert mentoring from known leaders in target industries.

The event panel, composed of global thought leaders on crowd funding and angel networks including Vince Molinari (a Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Gate Technologies, which develops technology platforms to ensure regulatory compliant private market transactions), will discuss current industry opportunities and best practices with participants.  Panelists bring current industry experience and expertise gained through the development of the JOBS Act law in the USA and legal equity-based crowd funding in the Netherlands, Sweden, France and other nations.

“Crowd funding for equity has tremendous potential for emerging entrepreneurs who have great ideas and who are open to alternative and dynamic sources of capital input,” states The Soho Loft founder and crowd funding for equity expert David Drake.

The scope for investment growth through crowd funding is astounding. With $1.5 billion revenue in 2011, the USA crowd funding market is one of the nations' fastest-growing industries.  Its Internet presence includes 600+ online platforms led by Kickstarter, IndieGoGo and Rockethub.  

Tickets for the November 14 event are available from http://united-nations-crowdfunding-for-africa.eventbrite....
