500 platform in the World, 1.5 B$ raised in CF in 2011...a fast growing market.
And one very early platform from Pisa ( yes , the tower City) born 3 years ago, before the famous Kickstarter and many others. Kapipal, founded by the young economist and startupper Alberto Falossi...grew very fast...due also the english language and the global visibility....Alberto made a Kapipalist Manifesto, translated by the crowd in 12 languages...inspiring speech at the Crowdfuture conference in Rome, October 27th. We'll try it! do it!
