Crowdfunding, Magical Tool or Legal Nightmare?

Curated by the Lift community
Fri, Feb. 06 2015 - 10:30 to 12:00
Room 19 (Floor 3)

Workshop description : Is crowdfunding the new sustainable way to accelerate the funding of innovation without legal burdens? What are the advantages of this method from a legal perspective? Are there hidden legal risks that you should be aware of? What did our experience as legal advisors taught us about crowdfunding in the past few years?

The purpose of this workshop is to share experiences about the legal benefits and pitfalls of this recent method for collecting funds, but also to suggest measures to limit possible risks and to raise awareness regarding such risks.


Interactivity : The approach that we envisage here would be to establish a list of pros and cons of crowdfunding that participants would establish with us in the course of the workshop and that we could discuss with them, based on their experience as well as our experience, and to finish with the establishment of a list of best practices for the funding of innovation!
