Forcrowd has Consob’s authorization since 2019
Forcrowd, based in Milan, has a share capital of $130,000 (€115,000) and was authorized by Consob in June 2019. It was born from an initiative of Foradvisory, an independent company in the field of corporate finance and services supporting family businesses. Forcrowd aims to facilitate immediate access to strategic funds for the implementation of business projects or investment plans, as an alternative to traditional banking instruments.
Its founding partners and shareholders come from the financial consultancy sector, with specialization in the economic sectors in which the platform operates, with a deep experience at the service of Italian companies and entrepreneurs. The company’s CEO, Antonio Forte, is flanked by sector experts from the scientific committee, which is responsible for providing opinions on the technical and financial feasibility of each initiative. Forcrowd is the 26th equity crowdfunding platform, among the 46 authorized by Consob, to have launched at least one equity crowdfunding campaign and the 21st between 2019 and 2020.
The company B4tech has developed two digital ecosystems
The first one is B-SMART 4.0: an intelligent ecosystem, which aims to innovate installation, maintenance, and technical support processes, making them predictive and proactive, increasing productivity by 125%, and optimizing installation and maintenance costs.
The second one is CONCEPT STORE 4.0: a new concept of point of sale that, by leveraging innovative and enabling technologies, allows to customize the experience of each customer making it rewarding in every aspect, both emotional and sensory and practical and efficiency, combining the best of physical experience with the best of digital.
