On September 29, 2015, the European Commission published a guide for small and medium enterprises on how to use crowdfunding. The guide describes the different types of crowdfunding available, such as peer-to-peer lending as well as equity, revenue-sharing, and debt-securities crowdfunding and includes details on how to plan and prepare for crowdfunding.

The guide is available at: http://ec.europa.eu/DocsRoom/documents/10229/attachments/1/translations/en/renditions/native.
