Why you need to learn CrowdFunding
By 2020, roughly 60 million Americans – 1 in 6 – will be over 65. In Europe that ratio will be 1 in 5. The majority of aging baby boomers will work beyond the traditional retirement age, and many will start small businesses both for financial support and lifestyle. Younger baby boomers, aged 55 to 65, will start more small businesses than any other demographic.
A growing share of the workforce will be 55 years or older, nearly 25 percent in the U.S. alone, shifting the needs of workers to age-relevant products and services that make their lives better.
By 2020 over 40% of the population will be self-employed and more ,

Digitally and CrowdFunding Savvy Kids Grow Up and Change Everything
Imagine a world where Gen Y dominates the workplace and home ownership, implementing an “on-my-own-time” ethos as both a management strategy and a lifestyle.
The Digital Generation – also known as Gen Y, or the Millennials (born between 1980 and 2000) – will grow up, with the oldest turning 40 in 2020. Their digital orientation will make them quick adopters of new technology, with a focus on careers, families, home ownership and high-tech living.
Gen Z – also known as Gen I, or the Internet Generation (born after 2000) – will enter their teen years, natively fluent in both mobile and social platforms. They’ll expect global reach with local ease, and establish global friendships through virtual and cloud-connected affiliations. The global grid will be their toy, their inspiration and their education.
Like their counterparts in the U.S., Gen Y and Z around the world will be more socially and globally connected through mobile Internet devices than any prior generation.

Dr. Richard Swart, of UC Berkeley and Crowdfund Capital Advisors, recently addressed the Deep Impact Conference in the UK via video to address the hot topic of crowdfunding and regulation. Swart is a frequent speaker on crowdfunding and is a highly respected researcher on the new form of finance.
Dr. Swart answers the question regarding what is the appropriate form of regulation. He reflects that most regulators today are not fully aware of the “paradigm shift” and disintermediation of traditional finance – especially when addressing SMEs. Crowdfund planning ( www.CrowdFundingPlanning.com) suggests that “Every US Politician & SEC Regulator Should Watch this Video”.
