Membership Disclaimer

EUROCROWD membership serves to align with our organizational objectives and initiatives. Associate Membership spans one calendar year and necessitates renewal annually. Associate Members typically join to support our vision and actively contribute to fostering a professional crowdfunding landscape through regulatory adherence and the promotion of best practices. Associate-level membership does not confer authority for executive decision-making within EUROCROWD or authorization to represent the organization publicly. Consistent with Articles 101 and 102 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU), which govern competition law, EUROCROWD opposes and does not tolerate or facilitate any agreements among member entities that restrict or indirectly limit competition. Our commitment precludes any such misconduct. Membership neither indicates market dominance nor grants privilege to voice dominance. Individual members’ interests are not represented by EUROCROWD, which advocates for fair competition and opposes practices detrimental to consumers or market competition within the EU. EUROCROWD is committed to reporting any breaches of any EU or national Law to relevant authorities and does not endorse members or their activities. We however lack the legal mandate or capacity to validate members’ professional conduct and encourage compliance with national laws and industry standards. Oversight is entrusted to National Conduct Authorities. Membership is offered through the European Crowdfunding Network AISBL, an international association governed by Belgian law, led by an executive board without operational or controlling interests in the crowdfunding sector. The European Crowdfunding Network AISBL’s daily work and operations are managed by EUROCROWD BV/SRL.
