A chartered marketer (MCIM) with a global MBA, I am currently pursuing a PhD in Entrepreneurship focusing on investor behaviour in the context of equity crowdfunding. Teaching all things digital is part of the journey. I blog on how entrepreneurial finance can foster a more sustainable and inclusive form of economic growth at thisisoliver.co

Kickstarter research found that support for crowdfunding campaigns and the success rate of campaigns is consistent with pre-pandemic metrics. However, the number of live projects on Kickstarter is down about 25% from the same time last year. Meanwhile, the largest equity crowdfunding platform, Wefunder, just reported that investor volume was up 35% from February through April and, in early May, reported a record $2 million of investment on a single day.
