Certain measures, which are aimed directly at Fintech including Little Eva, should allow us to continue our growth in France and abroad and to gain visibility .

Remember last March, financial lawyer, Minister of the Economy, proposed to increase the funding cap of crowdfunding platforms to 5M €. The Autorité des Marchés Financiers, for its part, proposed to push this ceiling even further to € 8 million, a significant increase compared to the threshold of € 2.5 million in force at that time.
