Sponsored by Telles de Abreu AssociadosCrowdfunding and peer-to-peer lending have been on the EU Commission's radar for a while. Until recently, the position was 'no-action required'.

This regulation focuses on crowdfunding for the funding of business (hence, excluding crowdfunding for social projects).
