 Author (s)

Equity crowdfunding is an emerging form of entrepreneurial finance that has gained significant attention in recent years. It enables startups and small businesses to collect funds from many investors through online platforms. While equity crowdfunding has the potential to overcome traditional funding barriers and democratize access to capital, there is a lack of consensus on its effectiveness and impact on startups and the wider entrepreneurial ecosystem. This paper provides an overview of leveraging equity crowdfunding for entrepreneurial financial support. It discusses the concept of equity crowdfunding, its evolution, and the benefits and drawbacks of this form of financing along with some comparative analysis. It also reviews the existing literature on equity crowdfunding and highlights its practical implications, limitations, and policy implications. Furthermore, the paper discusses the regulatory environment of equity crowdfunding and its impact on entrepreneurs and investors. The research concludes with recommendations for entrepreneurs considering equity crowdfunding as a source of financing. The study’s results highlight the pivotal influence of regulatory frameworks on equity crowdfunding outcomes, suggesting that a favorable regulatory environment correlates with increased success rates, creating a supportive ecosystem for entrepreneurs and investors. Policy makers can contribute significantly to providing regulatory clarity to ensure that entrepreneurs have access to equity crowdfunding for a financing option.
