Next week will see the full launch of AltFi’s global coverage of the peer-to-peer lending, crowdfunding and invoice finance sectors.

The US market will represent a major focus for AltFi Global – and as such we’ve posted Episode #2 of the “This Week in Crowdfunding” podcast below. The episode features an interview with Ron Suber – CEO of the San Francisco-based peer-to-peer lender Prosper. During the interview, Mr. Suber discusses how he and his partners Aaron and Steve built up Prosper into one of the world’s foremost peer-to-peer marketplaces.

The episode also touches upon the following points:

  • Crowdfunding catching on in Japan.
  • Google’s moves into crowdfunding – specifically relating to YouTube’s newly implemented donation feature.
  • A review of Crowdability – the new weekly investor-focused newsletter – educating readers on how best to approach equity crowdfunding by comparing it to best practices in venture capital, angel investing and private equity.
