In this second compilation edition of the Business Finance Bulletin 2014 interviews you will hear from the CEOs of two crowdlending providers, Graeme Marshall of Funding Knight and Parag Patel of Funding Empire, talking about how crowdlending works. Sourcing finance from the crowd exploded in 2014 and it’s fast becoming a recognised alternative to traditional bank funding.
