Crowd Stream presented its project results on the 8th Meeting of the EUSDR PA 10 Danube Local Actors Platform. The meeting took place on March 22, 2018 in Vienna. It gathered representatives from public authorities, NGOs, universities and Interreg projects. Among the topics discussed were EUSDR Presidency 2018, DTP Capitalisation Strategy and National Participation Days in the Danube Region.
CrowdStream presentation focused on relations with PA10 and targeted stakeholders during the project. Project activities so far contributed to the PA10 actions for combatting institutional capacity and public service related problems in the Danube region, development of local financial products for business and community development and for ensuring sufficient information flow and exchange at all levels.
The implemented regional analyses on Crowdfunding (e.g. regional profiles, market analyses, baseline study) increase knowledge of relevant stakeholders and serve as a basis for further development of strategies and concrete action plans. The involvement of key stakeholders in the learning interactions ensured transfer of know-how and increased contacts with local and internationally active innovative enterprises. By knowing better the innovative financial instrument (Crowdfunding), local partners can encourage future-oriented local business to search for alternative financing.
