We also believe that online funding portals work best when they are part of and embedded within a community, rather than being stand-alone sites. With that in mind we developed the Crowd Valley infrastructure so that crowdfunding platforms could be connected together, alongside business communities, funding networks, and institutions.
What we're looking for in a preferred partner
As an organization at the center of your sector you will have connections both to sources of capital and to the best deal-flow of assets. You may be looking for ways to capitalize upon those connections and build up your position as a thought leader in your region or your area of expertize.
Crowd Valley can offer specialist technology, support services, and guidance not only to help you understand how crowdfunding and new online investment markets across different sectors and asset classes might affect your business over the next decade, but also how you can be at the forefront of this movement.
Some of our partners become representative providers of our technology and back office services in their sectors; some take a position as an exclusive crowdfunding portal in a particular region; and others are interested in using our infrastructure to bring their disparate funding or business communities online.
