According to expert Venture Capitalist Fred Wilson, Crowdfund Investing has the potential to be at least a $300 billion industry. This number is derived from the notion that Title III, which eases the way for non-accredited American investors to participate in private placement deals, will give rise to investment of at least 1% of consumer wealth into crowd funded equity and debt securities.
