Crowdfunding is becoming increasingly popular as a method of financing. It can involve donations, loans and share capital investments. We are carrying out research into the motives and funding behaviour involved in crowdfunding, and we are developing workshops and providing education on this theme. The Credit Passport provides more transparent data for investors concerning individual entrepreneurs, businesses and financial performance. The Financial-Economic Advice for Innovation research group is actively involved in designing the Credit Passport and researching its effects.
