Moving from Reward success to Equity – An interview with Derek O’Sullivan of Thermo Tent

A few months ago we interviewed Derek O’Sullivan of Thermo Tent prior to their launch of a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign. Derek promised to return and tell us how it went and what he learned.

Good to his word we caught up with Derek after a successful campaign to raise 50,000 Euro. He tells us what went well, what advantages he has found from the campaign success and he shares with us the news that they now plan to run an equity crowdfund on the Seedrs platform

If you want to know how to run a crowdfunded Community Share issue what better way than to hear from someone who has done it?

An interview with Marketlend CEO – Leo Tyndall

Marketlend is a new Australian lending platform founded and led by Leo Tyndall.

Launched in the same week that the Financial System Inquiry (FSI) of Australia released its “blueprint” for the Australian financial system for the next ten years, this new platform shows how innovation in financial products is  global.

We were lucky enough to get a chance to speak to Leo in the week of his launch.

Leo provides us with an interesting insight as to how Marketlend is a necessary addition to the Australian business finance marketplace and what makes its offer so distinctive.

The FSI report is generally encouraging towards crowdfunding and new and novel approaches to finance and we can be sure that where Leo’s team lead others will certainly follow.
