韩国实现众筹合法化

为推动经济增长,韩国国会通过了一系列法律,并将众筹合法化法案也纳入到新立法中。总部位于首尔的G3 Partners发布的一项报告显示,在这些新法案颁布之前,企业家们只能在自助法的范围内,从小型(但是处于增长中的)风投领域获利,或者在韩国境外寻找发展机会。人们普遍认为上周一通过的《金融投资服务与资本市场法案》会极大地促进就业,特别是对于年轻人来说。最终,执政党新国家党通过了这项混合议案。

《韩国中央日报》解释道,金融服务委员会将个人投资的上限设定为每家公司每年500万韩元(约合4,400美元)。在股票发行完成的一年之内,公司所有人以及主要的持股人不得出售所持股份。

G3 Partners对新出台的法律做出了以下评论;

G3 Partner首席执行官Nathan Millard解释道,“在G3 Partners,我们已经用海外众筹项目支持了数家韩国新创公司。虽然我们仍将针对海外平台开展业务,但是对于韩国新创企业来说,最近的立法变革是一大利好。对于像Tumblebug这样的韩国先锋众筹平台来说,也是具有里程碑意义的立法改革,因为到目前为止,他们仅仅能够帮助艺术家们为其项目募集资金。”

Tumblebug是一家以奖励为基础的成功的众筹平台,据韩国针对新创企业开办的主要的媒体平台beSuccess的报道,Tumblebug在过去的五月份募集到了150万美元的资金。自2011年Tumblebug投入运营以来,已经募集到了440亿韩元(约合4,000万美元)。位于美国伯克利的Fung研究院2013年的报告显示,目前,韩国拥有大约30家处于运营状态的众筹平台。

在亚洲各国,众筹的发展速率和公司形式变化多样。虽然以奖励为基础的众筹很盛行,但是投资所依赖的调整环境却很不相同,一些国家勇往直前,而另一些国家则仍然忧心忡忡。很显然,已经见证过太多变动的亚洲国家,是受到增加就业的需求以及培育创新型经济体的愿望的驱动,才开展众筹业务的。

The Korean National Assembly has passed a set of laws to boost economic growth and incorporated in the new legislation was an act that legalizes crowdfunding. According to a report by G3 Partners based in Seoul, prior to these new rules entrepreneurs were limited to bootstrapping, availing themselves to the small (but growing) VC community or look outside of Korea for help. The “Financial Investment Services and Capital Markets Act”, passed on Monday, is viewed as a catalyst for job creation – especially for the youth. The omnibus bill passed unilaterally by the ruling Saenuri Party.

KoreaJoongangDaily explains the Financial Services Commission (FSC) has restricted individual investment to no more than 5 million won (approximately $4,400) per company, per year. The company owners and major shareholders are restricted from selling shares for one year after the issue is completed.

G3 Partners, a startup PR firm, commented on the new laws;

“At G3 Partners, we have supported a number of Korean startups with overseas crowdfunding campaigns. While our efforts on overseas platforms will continue, we see the recent legislative changes as a big win for Korean startups. It’s also a critical legislative milestone for pioneering Korean crowdfunding platforms like Tumblebug, which have until now been limited to helping artists raise money for their projects,” explained G3 Partners’ CEO, Nathan Millard.

Tumblebug, a successful rewards based platform, recently raised $1.5 million this past May as reported in beSuccess. The site has been in operation since 2011 and has helped to fund over 44 billion won (about $40 million). South Korea has round 30 crowdfunding sites in operation today according to a 2013 report by the Fung Institute at Berkeley.

The development of crowdfunding across Asia has seen very diverse rates of growth and incorporation. While rewards based crowdfunding is prevalent the regulatory environment for investment based is very inconsistent with several countries leading the charge while others remain more apprehensive. The Asian countries that have seen most movement are typically driven by the need for job creation and the desire to foster an innovation economy.

    监管机构主要靠限制主要项目启动者的持股期限、限制众筹个人投资者的投资上限来控制个人投资者的投资风险,值得借鉴。
