Innovestment is active in different associations and organizations. In this way, we make our contribution through the promotion of entrepreneurship and to the further development of financial services into a modern form that is accessible to all.
The regular exchange of experience on various platforms contributes significantly to this. This is the only way we can learn from each other and combine our different strengths to find quick and easy but enduring solutions.
We are happy to contribute our experience in entrepreneurship and crowdfunding and our perspective of a new generation financial services provider. Together we can achieve more – that's why we enjoy working together with our team, network, partners and clients on a digital, entrepreneurial future.
Innovestment is a founding member of the non-profit organization European Crowdfunding Network (ECN) based in Brussels. Together with other European platform operators, we are committed to more transparency, common standards and a fundamental understanding of the role of crowdfunding as an alternative form of financing and the potential for the European economy and society.
In addition, we are pushing for European harmonisation of the crowdfunding market with the European Crowdfunding Service Provider Regime (ECSP) as the legal framework. We and the European institutions see great potential for the entire industry in the Europe-wide expansion. In doing so, we enjoy the support of the European Commission, which promotes us as a key industry to improve access to capital for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs).
Christin Friedrich is Chairwoman of the ECN and is also active in the ECN Working Group "Exploring Blockchain for Alternative Finance". As a member of the European Crowdfunding Network (ECN), Innovestment follows ECN's code of conduct. The applicable code of conduct can be found here.
