Can crowdfunding make access to finance more equitable?

Gavriel Landau is certainly trying. Through Charm Impact he would like to make crowd funding accessible to teams run by entrepreneurs who have been neglected by institutional investors: local founders, women business owners. And he knows a thing or two about crowdfunding as well. Charm Impact has funded itself through an equity fund raise.

Gavriel talks about the advantages of crowdfunding. It gets you access to a group of strong advocates, a point Toby Hammond makes in a previous podcast as well. And he passes along a few tips to entrepreneurs who would like to access crowdfunding and some suggestions on how foundations should be supporting this new trend.
