Access to financing is a major obstacle for many entrepreneurs, start-ups and small businesses seeking growth and development.
In recent times, other forms of financing, such as crowdfunding and peer-to-peer lending, have gained popularity as alternative channels.
Alternative financing is not just about raising funds, but has also further evolved into a social media space for start-ups, and small and medium-sized enterprises, to raise awareness of their brand names and products.
This forum aims to highlight the various aspects of alternative financing. Key insights will be shared by experts and practitioners, ranging from the various types of alternative financing platforms, to the regulatory framework.
