In the last years, crowdfunding has established itself as a viable method of funding a project. The Swiss CROWDLI AG has furthered the idea of crowdfunding and translated it into an alternative investment method for property investment and co-ownership sharing. At the start of the year, it launched its website and began funding its first property. Co-founder and CEO Felix Helling had the initial idea for CROWDLI in 2014. At the time, he was finishing his master’s degree in building and property management, but had already multiple years of previous experience in the business. In 2016, he revisited the idea and together with his three co-founders Raphael Hagspiel, Reto Fierz and Roger Bigger put it into practice.
