We had a founding session of the P2PVenture project within BarCamp:BarCampBank3. The session gathered more than 15 people and we had a lively discussion on the targets, regulation and mechanism to build and operate a platform to match enterprise projects / startups investment needs and distributed investment capacities.


[edit] Some of the key ideas we discussed

  1. Regulation is quite restrictive, but in the end, this should not be considered as insurmontable.
  2. Regulation can offer a barrier to entry for second movers, but it should be assessed if this does not constitute a too high barrier protecting the current incumbents (traditional investments banks, VCs,..).
  3. Looking for workarounds (transform private equity investments into lending through specific mechanisms, offer financial advice in a indirect way) may offer a temporary solution, but in the end the regulator will probably sep-in anyway
  4. BarCampBank promotes an open business plan model. All the cards will be face-up and people with information are encouraged to contribute. BarCampBank wants to act as a central place, where a validated business plan is built with contibution of the community, where seeding could be found within this community and where the network of the community members will support the implementation of the final project and managing team.

[edit] Next Steps

  1. Start exchanging ideas online and offline.
  2. Figure how to rapidly build a prototype - even if very limited in scope - to see if it takes off.

After the session, LouisVanProosdij quoted the Agregator club. One of its objectives is to fund start-ups at early stage. An ITV of an Aggregator rep can be found here.
