Products do not sell themselves, even well-known brands need targeted strategies and active promotion to make and keep them selling well. In 1995, Plagemann was taken over by the Swiss Valora Trade, Europe’s leading distributor of brands in the FMCG sector and today, Plagemann forms part of the Valora Trade Austria GmbH & Co KG, headed by Mr. So far, Valora Trade Austria is focusing on the Austrian market but the management is determined to extend activities to foreign markets.

Guinea pig owners embrace 'pignics' this summerI will have to start including my guinea pigs in these! Current headlines are dominated by traditional institutions becoming minor or even major players in fintech platforms globally. The aim is simple, institutions with a network of local or “community” banks are providing their customers an alternate avenue to raise capital if they cannot do so within the physical branch. We at Crowd Valley (a Grow VC Group company) have seen both local banks and institutions identify this opportunity and enter new markets in a very meaningful way.
Institutions looking to capitalise on collaboration within the fintech space, get in touch with us at Crowd Valley to leverage our full offering and industry leading Digital Back Office that bridge the gap into fintech. The Country Risk Barometer: Key Challenges for 2016 produced by trade credit insurer Coface, highlights those countries that have persevered through this economic contraction as well as those that have recently underperformed.
Bright spots from the report have been seen in Europe as a whole, with Central Europe being the highlight. That is not to say that risk from a possible Brexit, the ongoing Refugee Crisis and financial instability in countries like Greece, Spain and Portugal should be ignored. Further, the Coface report notes that “in addition to sluggish GDP growth negatively affecting their profitability, businesses in emerging countries are currently facing a second problem: their growing debt.
In some of our former posts we have discussed how artists and entrepreneurs are using crowdfunding to raise money for their art and business projects, but did you know that athletes of all ages are using crowdfunding as well? Over Kapipal’s history, we have found that there is not one specific point where athletes turn to crowdfunding. To get started, go to the Kapipal home page and click Start Project in the top-right side of the screen. League Fees – Even fun adult softball leagues have been known to have fees, so if you and your team are a bit tight on money, crowdfunding could be a great way to generate the funds needed to get you and your team playing! Tournament Fees – No matter whether you are participating in local tournaments or national tournaments spread out across the country, there are always fees associated and sometimes they can be pretty hefty! Equipment – Whether it is soccer cleats or football helmets, equipment is very important, especially in regards to player safety.
Finance professionals, platform operators and anyone interested to learn more about digital finance and the fintech market. The Grow VC Group has collected a new vision and insights document (see below) that focuses on new business models, new finance instruments and better utilization of resources in the finance sector. In our document we especially focus on four key areas: 1) capital, 2) distribution, 3) instruments, and 4) customers. We have listed some key areas to enable these new models: 1) new competence and knowledge development, 2) data and analytics, 3) technology, and 4) new innovation models. The Grow VC Group works in many areas in the ecosystem to develop new competences, services and technology solutions.
Many parties see that there will be more requirements for the back offices of the platforms, for example in KYC, AML and reporting functions. In summary, many alternative finance and fintech events have started to repeat one another. Now it is important that this new industry really starts to think about the next big steps, how to really get alternative and digital finance to a major role in the finance sector. At TradeUp (a Grow VC Group company), our investment thesis is built on the consistent research finding that globalizing companies outperform the broader market. One of the most rewarding aspects of Kapipal (a Grow VC Group company) is hearing countless success stories of campaign creators turning their dreams into reality. My campaign was created in order to raise money to finance the artwork and duplication of my new album, « Ice Age Paradise », a record featuring a ten-piece ensemble of horns, strings rhythm section and voice. My record label informed me recently that they had decided not to put out my new album and therefore I was forced to find a DIY approach to financing final steps of the project. A friend used Kapipal to create his own crowdfunding campaign to finance the completion of his current album and he recommended your service to me. Yes, several people that I didn’t expect would donate actually did and others whom I thought would, didn’t.
We’ve written about the API Economy previously and expressed our optimism toward specialization of service providers in the financial services market.
In 2013, a revised Payment Services Directive (PSD2) entered the discussion and was proposed by the European Commission with the objective of furthering the services and standards in the original framework.
In the framework of PSD2, there are provisions to mandate a requirement for financial institutions to provide access to their core banking services for service providers through an application programming interface (commonly, API). The aim of this interface and more broadly framework, is to bring strong customer protection and efficient fraud prevention standards into play, but the effects on pushing financial institutions into adopt the philosophy around the API Economy may be much more significant than the framework might lead you to believe. From our work with leading financial institutions around the world, we can see the work on exposing interfaces and making core banking services available already. It may be tempting to think, that frameworks put forth by the European Commission would only have an impact within its jurisdiction. As governments around the world look to small and mid-size enterprises (SMEs) as engines of growth, trade and job creation, a thorny challenge stands in the way: hundreds of billions of dollars of pent-up demand for trade finance.
This financing can be used as export working capital that enables a company to purchase labor and inputs to fulfill a specific export order.
While critical for SME trade, such transactional financing is not enough to fuel globalizing SMEs.
These findings are indicative of a global trade finance gap, now estimated at $1.4 trillion, $693 billion of which is in developing Asia, including India and China. Before the crowdfunding industry even existed, musicians often relied on money from their fans to record albums and tour, so it comes to no surprise that many famous musicians have become active members of the crowdfunding industry. After breaking with a major label, musician Amanda Palmer turned to crowdfunding in order to generate enough money so she could record her next album. Hip Hop Legends De La Soul turned to crowdfunding in order to generate funds for their eighth album.
Other well-known musicians that have turned to crowdfunding include: the surviving members of TLC, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Kenny Loggins and Paula Cole. Now remember, you don’t have to be a famous musician in order to benefit from crowdfunding. Working together with other company functions, including sourcing, compliance and sales, helps treasury manage cash flow and improve the company’s working capital position. In turn, cloud-based, data-driven platforms are increasingly improving supply chain management, by lending themselves to predictive analytics and collaboration between partners such as suppliers and banks. LendIt, San Francisco – April 12 – Speaking at the worlds largest online lending event, Crowd Valley Inc, creator of the world’s first digital back office for private securities transaction portals and marketplaces announced new service levels after pilots with financial institutions. Crowd Valley now offers tailored service, including compliance technology used by the SEC and FINRA to meet rigorous bookkeeping for long-term evidential log retention and state of the art end-to-end encryption both at rest and in transit through the full data lifecycle.

Helping Projects to Succeed – This first blog acts as a great introduction for those that are new to crowdfunding.
Providing Transparent and Accurate Information – This post is a continuation of the one above and highlights the 2nd key to successfully funding your crowdfunding campaign, which – as you may have guessed! Providing a Variety of Engaging Content – The final post of this beginners series discusses the 3rd key to having a successful campaign – providing a wide variety of content! It is also very important to share your crowdfunding campaigns with your friends and family (and maybe even strangers!) so here is an article that features tips on how to share your crowdfunding campaign over social media – so be sure to check that out. Crowd Valley (a Grow VC Group company) has supported over 100 clients in the market with their fintech applications, and we see many good ideas for different verticals and digital finance products. You can build an amazing digital investing platform with our API, but if you are not going to promote it in the right way, it will not get any attention. I recently had a conversation with Sebastian Fung, the VP Marketing at WeFinance.co, a crowdlending platform that matches borrowers and lenders at interest rates that benefit both parties. These are three very important points and we will return on this in future blog posts since there are different areas to cover and to consider when you are planning how to market your online investing or lending application. I’d love to learn what you currently do to promote your product and what are the best marketing tactics (eg.
The potential for digital investing and more in general for the alternative finance market, seems good in the Netherlands. Every day we are quite literally inundated with spam, advertising, and all kinds of communication from friends, colleagues and people trying to sell us something through every possible set of channels. Every week there is a self-proclaimed “expert” stating that the newsletter is dead, but the fact is that newsletters are still one of the most effective marketing tools, when you look at conversions and visits to your site, and one of the best ways to stay up to date and informed about a particular topic or industry as they filter through the noise and hype. Probably the best newsletter to track emerging industries, venture capital and disruptive startups.
This is a curation of the best news and trends in the tech world, with a particular focus on financial technology. Nicely curated newsletter compiled daily that brings to you the best perspectives, insights, and lessons learned from investors, founders, and other operators in the startup ecosystem. Good collection of the latest articles on developments, solutions and innovations in fintech industry, with dates for conferences, hackathons and deadlines. I’d love the chance to learn from you with any suggestions you may have and to learn what are your favourite fintech newsletters. The City of Barrie has a strong entrepreneurial ecosystem background with key players like Invest Barrie, Henry Bernick Entrepreneurship Centre at Georgian College or VentureLAB. Its target is to make the transition from entrepreneurship to startup ecosystem and wants to encourage technology entrepreneurs to start and grow global businesses that will create more jobs, boost Barrie’s economy, strengthen global connections and make the city a more desirable place to live, work and visit. Barrie’s tech startup ecosystem is in the very early stages of development and they face challenges like lack of volume factor, limited access to investment, key services and activities, as well as a framework in place to break with silo mentality and implement a holistic approach that can bring more connectivity, measurement and benchmarking to its startup ecosystem.
Initial two days kick off workshop to build mutual understanding of the current level of Barrie’s startup ecosystem and services, to figure out what development and focus is required first and which parts of this development would benefit the most to begin with.
San Francisco – March 22 – Crowd Valley Inc, (a Grow VC Group company) creator of the world’s first digital back office to power online finance business announced that Ronald J. The Austrian company Valora Trade Austria is well proven for decades as a competent partner for distributing and promoting international consumer product brands in Austria, sweet brands to be exact, the company specialises in confectionery brands.
Indeed, Valora Trade Austria has won a number of leading brands such as Ricola, Swiss herb lozenges, Kagi, Swiss waffles, Smint made by Perfetti Van Melle, or Trolli made by Mederer, the number two in Austria next to Haribo. This week it was announced that BlackRock made an investment of ?12.7 million in Funding Circle. This comes in the form of onboarding these customers onto a digital finance portal which they operate. By operating in the “cloud” platforms both future proof scaling and mitigate internal controls to enter the market efficiently. Utilising their internal expertise in market knowledge, operations and product positioning, it gives them an advantage over most.
Benefiting from cheap oil, the weak euro, and the slow decline in unemployment, the outlook looks positive overall.
Sometimes they are a fresh individual or group looking to start a new league or raise money for a future event, other times they are already well-established and simply need funds for new jerseys or tournaments. Digitization, alternative finance and fintech enable many new things, but they are enablers and the ultimate target is to offer better products and more value to the customers, to increase business earnings and offer better ROI for capital. We then highlight some models and solutions, how finance companies can increase efficiency and value in all those key areas. The established finance institutions often also need a significant culture change to adapt to new models. For example, Crowd Valley’s back office enable fast development of new finance service on robust cloud based back office functions, DealIndex is the leading source of Alternative Finance data, Grow Advisors assists finance companies in the transition to the digital era, and TradeUp develops new models for export growth capital.
Banks have their capital restrictions and price for capital tied to higher risk loans that leaves a lot of room for other players. There are some activities in that area and often sought from the investors position, but e.g. This is the area where Crowd Valley also offers leading solutions for platforms and portal to meet their ongoing and long-term requirements. They have the same stories about regulation, some known platforms and speculation, how new models can have a huge potential. It requires more ecosystem, business model and technology competence than most conferences offer today.
Now Boston Consulting Group (BCG) has produced evidence that private equity funds with portfolio companies with increasingly popular buy-and-build strategies (in which a PE firm buys a company and then build on this platform through add-on acquisitions) with cross-border acquisitions outperform buy-and-build strategies that are purely domestic and strategies that do not include buy-and-build.
The international expansion of a formerly domestic company is hypothesized to unlock opportunities for cross-selling, generate larger scale economies, and catalyze further expansions, especially if the business improvements raise investors’ expectations of results that have yet to be reflected in financial performance. Many of these stories are so remarkable that we decided to create a “Creator Spotlight” blog series. Each person who donated will receive a copy of the album and depending on the amount given, she or he will obtain the music in a different format (ex. It looks like frameworks and proposals being put in place may speed up that development, by forcing uniform standards and requirements on the market. The revised Payment Services Directive (PSD2) may have a long term effect and catalyze the banking sectors position shift to piping from certain high-value services. The PSD2 is still not fully set and the discussion is still ongoing, however, there are various elements that are interesting to examine and are being anticipated by service providers in the financial markets. The use case is to allow third parties, with the end users permission, access to certain services using their accounts with financial institutions such as banks. Take for instance the Spanish Bank BBVA’s API Market platform that’s been rolled out in Spain and the US so far. We can see the amount of investment being made into new cutting edge technologies, new ways of providing services and new business lines being created. Or it can be used as supply chain financing that helps the company get paid faster for its export shipment than its foreign buyer wants to pay, and thus get cash flow needed to process the next order. Debates on the trade finance gap—and on export promotion and trade and development—need to focus on the growth capital gap.
World trade grew an average of 3 percent between 2010 and 2015, after 6 percent annual growth between 1983 and 2008.
Below, we will look at a couple different examples of famous musicians using crowdfunding for their albums or tours!
She proved to be extremely successful, as she generated $1.2 million from her fans spread out across the globe.


Like Palmer, De La Soul felt that it was in the music’s best interest that they separate from a major label, citing that major labels often infringe on the creative process. Crowd Valley offers service that meets banking requirements include single-tenant application models, end to end data security, integration into sophisticated firewall architecture, and highest service commitments to service integrity. The company is headquartered in the heart of San Francisco with further offices in London, New York and Hong Kong. The roadshow covered in detail how technologies such as Crowd Valley’s, which leverages the AWS infrastructure, can benefit from cloud architecture built to satisfy the requirements of the most security-sensitive organizations. In its 2015 Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service, Worldwide, Gartner placed AWS in the “Leaders” quadrant and rated AWS as having both the furthest completeness of vision and the highest ability to execute.
There are still openings available, so join now for your chance to raise money, get exposure and to present at BroadcastAsia 2016! Their focus is helping people lend based on personal relationships and social validation, rather than credit scores (eg. Each of them has specific considerations and aspects, that may make them more relevant in specific niches or market verticals and any strategy needs to be considered in full thoroughly.
This is the result of an effort started by The Netherlands Authority for Financial Markets (AFM) in December 2014, when they published a report on crowdfunding, drawing attention to perceived problems in the current regulations and offering their recommendations about how the digital investing market in the country could develop more sustainably. Symbid, one of the world’s first investment crowdfunding platforms, was born and is currently based there.
With these new rules things could accelerate further and hopefully we will be able to see some very good results in the months ahead. We’ve discussed the fragmentation of the European market as an inhibitor to the digital finance markets growth and expect it to continue to as a factor in smaller countries in Europe, outside the majors like the UK. You can expect insight into fintech applications, regulatory development, market movements and trends in fintech and digital finance, with a special focus on online investing and lending, wealth management, real estate and business debt. Startups may seem insignificant compared to large multinational companies that have trillions of dollars of wealth sloshing around in public markets, but a Kauffman Foundation study found that the majority of job growth in the United States is driven by technology startups.
This allows to then set a clear target and milestones, along with a specific plan, timeline and budget to reach the set target.
Buschur, formerly CEO of NASDAQ-listed Powerwave Technologies, will be working with the company in a Corporate Development Executive Advisory Role. Buschur has a proven and global track record in business, and has run NASDAQ listed technology company Powerwave as CEO, dramatically increasing revenue to over $890 million and being named “Fastest Growing Company” 4 consecutive years.
I believe we can see big successes in new finance technology models using modern technologies and I look forward to enabling finance innovation with the Crowd Valley team,” Ronald Buschur explains.
Headquartered in Neunkirchen, 50 km south of Vienna, Plagemann has two warehouses with a total capacity of 3,500 palettes. Similar activity is mirrored by companies such as Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan and DBS in Singapore.
The motive for the institution is clear and with the rise of “collaboration” it makes entering the market effortless. With the prospect of economic volatility reaching developing countries, evaluating risk is key when determining investment and trade opportunities. Whether it is an Olympic level athlete generate funds for the Rio 2016 Summer Olympics or a youth sports teams trying to gain support for their tournaments and travels, athletes from all over the world are using Kapipal (a Grow VC Group company) to raise money for their dreams. With the campaign page, it will be a very important that you inform your audience of who or your team is and what your goals or dreams are. The UK has been the leading market, where the FCA has had an important role to play in enabling the fast development of the industry.
I also boosted my personal music page on Facebook in order to reach a wider number of people.
Similar initiatives are being prepared and launched in various forms of innovation accelerators, internal ventures and new business development teams around the world.
Given the interconnectedness of the global financial services sector, new ways of delivering are being prepared and launched all around the world, and strategies are being laid out on how positions are changing in the market. The same characteristics in the market demand that ultimately manifest themselves also in new regulatory discussions and proposals, are what is is driving this shift from Asia the to the Americas.
We will see banks both lead and get left behind, with the shift to becoming more relevant to the market, the consumer and the service provider longer term being the main focus.
Growth capital is equity and longer-term debt financing that is not aimed at any one trade transaction, but rather at expanding a company’s production and sales capabilities.
But it is important to keep in mind that she did not merely generate this huge amount by only asking her fans. Within a month of creating their crowdfunding campaign, they were able to generate $600,874, far surpassing its goal of $110,000 (their campaign surpassed this figure in only 9 hours). The resulting album, “And the Anonymous Nobody,” is set to release this year.
No matter whether you are an artist, scientist, entrepreneur or merely a dreamer, there are plenty of different ways that Kapipal can be leveraged, so what are you waiting for?
For Crowd Valley’s customers, this means that they can rely on market-leading technology infrastructure without having to make any investment at all in their own servers, let alone security policies, procedures, or data archives. Feel free to contact us or read more below where we highlight some of our most popular blog posts that help explain how to get started turning your dreams into reality! We remain optimistic and call for effective frameworks to facilitate cross border intra-Europe digital finance transactions and see the vast potential for growth if the world’s largest market can act as truly that. The power of information technology has been steadily increasing for the last three decades and has recently reached a level of maturity that has started to trigger a reorganization of the global economy.
Given the innovative startups’ critical role in the information economy, the importance of healthy startup ecosystems only stands to increase in the future, being this the reason why local, regional and national governments across the world are establishing programs to support tech entrepreneurs in an effort to stimulate economic growth and job creation. He has also successfully run technology growth companies, like HMT Technologies in Silicon Valley and been involved in cutting edge technology development and deployment in the United States, Europe, Middle East and Asia. The company offers co-packaging, latest logistics, an experienced staff of 52, of whom 14 are sales people active across Austria and an impressive reference list featuring more than 30 brands.
While these large institutions are making waves in the digital finance space, similar size opportunities are being exploited by community banks and institutions in the form of local P2P networks.
Tell exactly why you need additional funding, and what you plan to do with it once you reach your campaign goal.
Most solutions are relevant for many types of finance institutions, but we also include models, how e.g.
The event served as a good summary of the p2p lending and equity crowdfunding market in the UK and some other countries.
Many parties also see that much more data, including historical data, is needed to get the market to a more mature phase.
In addition to public posts, I wrote private messages to friends asking them to share my campaign with their friends and acquaintances and wrote several emails to people in the same fashion. Leveraging back and middle office frameworks like the Crowd Valley Digital Back Office is part of this development and in our work, we are fortunate to be able to assist in the migration to the new banking economy with the right balance of efficiency and security for all parties involved.
It has never been easier or cheaper to create a startup thanks to infrastructure like open source software, software as a service, cloud hosting, globally ubiquitous payment processing, viral distribution channels, real-time collaboration, on demand logistic services and hyper-targeted advertising. For example we have successfully established Durgol, the softening agent for coffee makers, the number one brand in a very small market segment. Also, be sure to include some images or video of you in action playing the sport you are trying to raise money for. At the same it also illustrated, how the discussion now focuses on a few services and countries, when much more happens behind the curtains. Now some services have really started to offer data available that help follow many platforms and see historical trends (see e.g.
It’s just a click of a button to start to start but remember that it’s not just creating a crowdfunding page. Buschur is joining the company to bring his expertise into global business development and strategic partner expansion.
