Business RadioX Hosts a Special Edition on CrowdFunding

Business RadioX®’s Results Matter Radio welcomed to the studio Elan Amram with CrowdFundBeat and David Lilenfeld with SterlingFunder to talk about the rise of crowdfunding.


On January 7, 2014, co-hosts Lee Kantor and Stone Payton of Results Matter Radio on Business RadioX® sat down with Elan Amram from CrowdFundBeat and David Lilenfeld from SterlingFunder to discuss the recent rise of crowdfunding.

Elan Amram is Founder and CEO at SchmoozBiz, a social networking destination devoted to the crowdfunding community. As a contributor to CrowdFundBeat, Amram is also involved in the CrowdFunding USA Conference & Expo, happening in Atlanta May 1-2, 2014. According to Amram, “CrowdFunding USA provides the participants with the unique opportunity to discuss the current state of the industry, to learn from experts in venture capital, business angel and crowdfunding fields, to network and find new partnerships.”

Also in the studio was David Lilenfeld, Co-Founder and CEO of SterlingFunder, an Atlanta-based equity and debt crowdfunding portal with an innovative approach to connecting startup companies seeking capital with qualified investors. As a lawyer, investor and entrepreneur, Lilenfeld recognizes the enormous effect crowdfunding will have on businesses and individual investors across the country and eventually the world. Explained Lilenfeld, “When The JOBS Act – which makes equity-based crowdfunding legal in the United States – became law, I began planning a way to help match passionate, smart entrepreneurs with intelligent, growth-minded investors in a union that has been unduly burdensome to make before crowdfunding.”
