To open our public data is very important for our economy, and, also, it's a good way to improve our democracies (transparency).

crowdfunding could be a great alternative way compared to (often missing) venture capital in Europe. currently its maximum is e.g. 100k€ in germany - afaik more would require a much higher level of additional effort. what can be done to balance some potentially higher investments with the needed administrative effort? there is more potential with crowdfunding. startups applying for a minimum of 50k€ always got their 100k€ within just a couple of hours crowdfunded in the last weeks (talking about one specific crowdfunding platform in Germany).
