Why do companies look for “famous individuals”?
Oliver* met up with Crowd Valley Inc., the leading global digital finance platform provider, to discuss about fintech, current challenges, future scenarios, and a partnership with the European business angels association. EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW.
Christian Catalini, Assistant Professor of Technological Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Strategic Management at the MIT Sloan School of Management, explains how venture capital investment has slowed down in many of the verticals since the end 2015. He says that if this is a trend rather than a blip, it will be a good test for the nascent market of equity crowdfunding. Many different models have emerged and platforms have adopted different types of solutions to solve for the problem of information asymmetry. Christian Catalini talks about those models and which ones are seeing the most success.
