  • Very interesting article - but the whole basis of crowd funding is small amounts from a lot of people, so while the question of investor protection is very important, the average individual investment tends to be quite low, in the £10 - £200 range. One could argue that a in many ways, the crowd does much of the due diligence by asking lots of questions, and the companies that do get funded tend to be the more transparent ones.
    I believe that Crowdcube requires that anyone investing more than £2000 must be a self-certified HNW or sophisticated investor.

  • I've seen great companies on RocketHub.com offer valuable reward without offering equity/revenue share - e.g. http://www.rockethub.com/projects/363-help-build-1-of-our-cabinas-for-our-panamanian-adventure

    So I'm not sure whether this is necessary.
