Crowdfunding

This week we shall be wrapping up our series on Crowdfunding which commenced six weeks ago. We commenced the series on crowdfunding to better intimate stakeholders with the concept of crowdfunding among other pertinent issues relating to Crowdfunding. Over the course of the series we discussed the following:

 

  1. In week one, we considered a bit of Crowdfunding history dating back to 1997 when Marillion Rock band raised $60,000 through the internet to fund their tour. Also we delved into how the Crowdfunding system operates and the various types that exist such as Equity, Donation-based etc.
  2. The following week we did a summary review of the exposed Crowdfunding rules by the Securities and Exchange Commission of Nigeria taking into consideration the proposed guidelines for regulated players such as Issuers, Investors and Crowdfunding Portals / Intermediaries. The write up also provided a review of some general restrictions and prohibitions on Crowdfunding Portals.
  3. Week three discussed the benefits of Crowdfunding for MSMEs and Investors while also distinguishing between bank loans and funds from Crowdfunding. Benefits such as higher returns, investment diversification and tax benefits were identified for the investors. While MSMEs benefit from accessing patient funds, business model validation and marketing opportunity.
  4. Week four identified the importance of regulating Crowdfunding as a source of capital for Start-ups and the possible consequences if the space is left unregulated. We highlighted the importance of controlling the excesses of participants such as – MSMEs, Investors, and Crowdfunding Platforms/Portals through the use of Issuer limits, Investor limits and disclosure requirements.
  5. Crowdfunding has a lot of benefits to the entrepreneurs who use it, therefore, we chose to discuss the accruable benefits of Crowdfunding as a source of capital in our week five write up. We considered benefits such as; bringing ideas to fruition, customer retention, accessibility, affordability and retaining business control among others.
  6. In week six, we discussed the viability of Crowdfunding as a source of capital for MSMEs in the Nigerian climate. We reviewed drivers of success such as enabling policies, technology and mitigation of risks associated with Crowdfunding.

 

NASD in its capacity as an Exchange continues to facilitate capital raise across various sectors within the Nigerian economy and Africa in extension. We believe that crowdfunding would provide an alternative capital raise avenue and a viable platform to stimulate investment flows into enterprises in Nigeria, especially MSMEs who have historically experienced difficulty in accessing funds for sustenance and expansion of operations.
