Disrupting the funding landscape; beer anyone?

It’s not a first of its kind, but the crowdfunding initiative for a Beerhouse to be opened in Cape Town is surely set to ruffle a few feathers.

Crowdfunding, typically done via the Internet, is the practice of raising money from a large number of people, who can contribute smaller amounts.

The World Bank estimates the size of this market to be around $2.5bn by 2025 in sub-Saharan African.

Beerhouse CEO Randolf Jorberg expects this type of funding to disrupt traditional forms, which include bank loans, venture capital, private equity and government grants.
