This is the next instalment of our series on crowdfunding. You can access my other interviews on crowdfunding here and here. Matt Burton, cofounder of the Orchard Platform joins me, Zack Miller, on the Tradestreaming Podcast. Crowdfunding is a huge, transformative trend in investing. Both individual and institutional investors alike are turning to crowdfunding to deploy their monies. Matt's company, Orchard, provides the technology infrastructure of many of these new platforms (what Burton calls the "marketplace lending ecosystem"). Given his ringside seat to what's transpiring in the p2p lending (and broader, in crowdfunding in general) industry, Matt addressed why investors are so interested in this new form of investing, how individual investors and professionals are using these crowdfunding platforms, and more.
