Abstract:This paper aims to identify which factors contribute to the difference in maturity of equity crowdfunding between the UK and the Netherlands. This is done through a literature study and web search. The findings are then validated/rejected and added to, by interviews with three industry experts. The factors that seem to contribute most are: the regulations, especially the Seed Enterprise investment scheme (SEIS) and the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS). The idea behind the regulations in the UK and NL are similar and backed by literature. The second factor that seem to contribute to the difference is the cultural difference between the UK and NL. The culture of the UK seems to be more risk oriented, which means that the public is more inclined to make risky investments through equity crowdfunding. Also the options for alternative finance, the amount of entrepreneurial talent and the maturity of the industry seem to contribute.
