Three crowdlending formulas for your sustainable investment
Crowdlending progress via a platform. Obviously, this should look attractive. Just as it should be safe and reliable. And the fun part is: no cure, no pay. If you do not raise capital with the platform, you do not have to pay anything.
If you do collect the total financing amount, you pay a success fee. This depends on your financing needs and your marketing objectives. You can choose from three formulas.
