I think it is fantastic to see crowdfunding becoming such a disruptive medium. Whether it disrupt governments, financial institutions or the ability for great ideas to come to market that never had the opportunity before, I believe we are at the inception of a incredibly global phenomena.
What encourages me the most is that it will no longer leave the power of decision to a select group, but enable growth and prosperity to flourish through 'supply vs. demand' and 'survival of the fittest'.
The one thing that I do wonder about is how these crowdfunding pockets will become globalized. I live in Canada and there is a large push for equity based crowdfunding but the government is restling with how to regulate it, which to me defeats the purpose. So, if all governments create localized regulation, will that stiffle the purpose of crowdfunding?
