We introduce an exploratory analysis of multiple case-studies, consisting of twelve businesses that manage real estate crowdfunding platforms. The information gathered through interviews gives an idea of how the shared opinion of professionals in the trade is identified with factors and variables that impact on the opening of this alternative finance segment towards technology innovations that may bring radical changes to the real estate industry.
