Luke Lang is the cofounder of Crowdcube, a crowdfunding platform that makes it easy for investors to invest their money in businesses and in return own shares in these same businesses. The model that Crowdcube adopts is a bit more interesting for people that are looking for more than just charity causes so to speak. Depending on the amount they invest through the Crowdcube platform, their return can be even more higher if the business is successful.
Crowdfunding is showing that the traditional lending institutions and means of raising money no longer have the reigns as to how far a promising entrepreneur can excel. Instead of being bogged down with bureaucratic red tape, investors can use the model of crowdfunding to take active part in a business and thus become more involved in its development and progress from inception to making the first sale.
