The Italian crowdfunding portal CrowdFundMe has launched CFM Board, an electronic bulletin board where it will be possible to buy and sell company shares. This is a tool provided by the latest Consob Regulation on equity crowdfunding, which aims to make it easier to liquidate shares or look for new investment opportunities. This is the third platform in Italy to offer this service after Opstart and Backtowork.
Thanks to CFM Board, investors who have purchased quotas or shares of CrowdFundMe issuers, in capital increase, will be able to post offers to resell them online on the board, allowing the purchase and sale of stakes in companies that are not yet listed on the stock exchange. Investors can thus monetize their assets by liquidating holdings in their portfolios.

Why CFM Board is good for investors
The electronic bulletin board, therefore, improves the time horizon of investments made through CrowdFundMe, allowing investors a potential resale of the quotas or shares held even in the short term. From the buyers’ side, instead, the electronic board gives the possibility to acquire in the secondary phase, even after the financing round is closed, shares or quotas of companies that have been able to develop thanks to equity crowdfunding and that aim to grow further.
CFM Board provides the bulletin board only as an instrument of encounter between supply and demand and, therefore, it will not follow the evolution of the negotiations; the selling price of the quotas or shares is established at the discretion of the bidder.
To date, the platform has received positive feedback from users, with investors who have expressed their satisfaction with the ease of use of the electronic bulletin board, thanks to which, through a few online steps, they were able to sell their shares. CrowdFundMe aims at a progressive evolution of the electronic bulletin board, to create a virtual space that will be the point of reference for buying and selling shares in crowdinvesting.
Tommaso Baldissera Pacchetti, CEO of CrowdFundMe, commented: “Shortly after the launch, we are registering an excellent response. We have in fact noticed a significant interest from investors who want to buy shares or quotas through CFM Board, especially thanks to the good performance of the issuers, which, in most cases, are expanding in their markets of reference and present growing results. To date, also taking into account the beta phase weeks, 229 sales announcements have been published and we have received 227 purchase alerts, with dozens of transactions completed or in the process of being finalized.”
