  3. Some of the snapshots:
    - EIF increasingly interested in CF
    - EIF does financing of small business. CF is clearly a way to finance the gap in financing paths for SME's
    - CF, AF, Fintech, Financial inclusion = an important evolutions in finance
    - Lending platforms, P2P, marketplace lenders bring organisation to the market. Invoice trading complements this additionally.
    - US still leading in the P2P sphere, UK great progress (lendingclub, tradesetter), Continental EU : development & growth, but no clear success model - but clearly growth

    New model = hybrid model :: platform/models that combine different models
    - market for rewards/financial model
    - market for P2P lending
    Close link to VC/AN, but also invoice trading

    Important to respect and be transparant for all partners in the equation: SME's, borrowers, investors.
