  2. Anticipated implications of SEBI’s position & expectations relating to Rewards-based/ Debt-based Crowdfunding from India
  3. Leveraging Crowdfunders from India vs worldwide, using Indian Crowdfunding platforms
  4. What preparation has to be done, before approaching a Crowdfunding platform
  5. Processes & procedures to be followed for initiating Crowdfunding campaigns

Further, what agencies/ consultants can provide support on these matters?
