Crowdnetic and UC Berkeley to partner on Crowdfunding Research

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

Over a year ago, Crowdnetic and UC Berkeley began collaborating on the launch of UC Berkeley’s Program for Innovation in Entrepreneurial and Social Finance, headed by Dr. Richard Swart, who serves as its Director of Research at the Coleman Fung Institute for Engineering Leadership. Through this role, Dr. Swart heads efforts to study policies, best practices and innovation in entrepreneurial finance, including crowdfunding and peer-to-peer lending.

Today, Crowdnetic, a provider of technology and market data solutions to the crowdfinance industry, has officially announced its partnership with the program at UC Berkeley by sharing the data that it has collected on companies choosing to publicly solicit for funding through the 506(c) exemption under Title II of the JOBS Act, which was implemented on September 23, 2013. This collaboration hopes to promote UC Berkeley’s position as a top research center and trusted resource for platforms, investors and policy makers.
