Crowdfinancing - Statistics

According to a very interesting study published by Crowdnetic (http://www.crowdnetic.com/reports/feb-2014-report), there are approximately 2,500 private issuers publicly raising capital.  Of these issuers, 32% are in the technology sector, and 43% are in the services sector.   These sectors have accounted for 24% and 37%, respectively, of the total capital committed.   Interestingly, the financial sector accounts for 20% of the capital committed but only 5% of the number of active issuers.  The financial sector also has the highest average amount of capital committed ($1,000,000) by issuer's successful raising capital.  In contrast, the average for all other sectors is approximately $300,000.
