Companies and Investments
NowStreet (Founder), Crowdnetic (Chief Communications Officer)
As more companies look for alternative lenders, they’ll start turning to “peers” for credit. I believe the peer-to-business (P2B) space will grow exponentially. Right now, there is far more investment demand for p2p loans than there is supply. I would not be surprised to see supply coming from business borrowers.
As the crowdfinance industry matures, it will be used to capitalize a lot of more capital-intensive industries such as renewable and health care. Consumers are much better at picking winners than the government. Case in point: consumers picked Apple, the government chose Solyndra.
