Austrian Regional Action Plan on improving framework conditions for alternative finance for start-ups and social enteprises is now available. The Plan was prepared in the framework of project CrowdStream and provides concrete measures for improving the access to alternative finance for innovative businesses and social enterprises. Inputs from the Regional Action Plans of all Danube area partner regions fed into Policy recommendations aiming at improving the access to alternative finance for innovative businesses incl. social and creative entrepreneurs. Both documents are available under the following link: Crowdstream Austrian Regional Action Plan

CrowdStream’s main objective is to improve the effectiveness of public/private business-support for innovative spin-offs & social enterprises to access qualitative alternative financing (crowdfunding)

The CrowdStream project will initiate a change in the financing market. Due to quality labelling and capacity building activities there will be a major shift from donation based to equity based crowdfunding.

Programm co-funded by European Union funds (ERDF, IPA, ENI).
