The United States is 322 times bigger than Belgium HOWEVER Startups and Small Businesses there can now raise 5.7x MORE than their U.S. counterparts via Crowdfunding???
Why should one of the smallest countries in the world have a higher cap than the United States? We have more businesses, a greater need, a greater opportunity, and a greater appetite from investors.Doesn’t seem right, does it?
Since July 21st, entrepreneurs in Belgium can raise up to €5 million where this was previously €300,000. That’s a 16.67x increase in their cap!
