This is 'Crowdfunders', the show that covers the fast-growing world of alternative finance. In today's show with Ed Bowsher we take a critical look at mini-bonds where companies effectively borrow money from investors via crowdfunding websites.
Also looked at is a crowdfunding campaign by a coffee company called Pact coffee. The company's founder claims that Pact's coffee is the best in the UK.
And finally, chat with James Codling, who is the boss of a platform called VentureFounders. James talks about VentureFounders and also explains what he thinks the crowdfunding industry needs to do if it wants to mature successfully.
