This is 'Crowdfunders', the show that covers the fast-growing world of alternative finance and we've got a very busy show for you today.
The big news this week is over the pond in the US. The CEO of one of the big peer-to-peer sites in the US, Lending Club, has left the company under a cloud. Apparently one investor was buying loans on the platform that were riskier than he realised. Some commentators argue that this story is a major blow to the alternative finance industry. We'll find out more.
We'll also be looking at a equity crowdfunding campaign for a company called ET Index - it provides information on companies' carbon emissions for investors.
And we'll also find out about a big new source of funding for the peer-to-peer site, Lendinvest.
Beginning with the Lending Club story, Ed Bowsher begins by talking to Ryan Weeks from the Altfi website.
