Brian Hellmer, director of the Hawk Center for Investment Analysis at the Wisconsin School of Business, was featured in a Wisconsin Public Radio news story about Wisconsin’s crowdfunding law, which allows companies to raise up to $2 million.

Few companies have used crowdfunding since the law went into effect in 2014.

"It’s a chicken-and-egg problem," Hellmer says. "The investors aren't aware of it, which means it's difficult for deals to get done. So it is going to take a little time to get success stories out there."
