The CAMAC review of crowd sourced equity funding (CSEF) is taking place within the context of on-going developments worldwide with this form of corporate fundraising for start-up and other enterprises. Central to the CAMAC review are questions whether CSEF should be facilitated in Australia and if so, by what means. What are the potential benefits of CSEF; what are the possible pitfalls? John Kluver, Executive Director of CAMAC, will discuss these key issues and their implications for the future.
