Setting Up an Efficient Crowdfunding Platform

Setting Up an Efficient Crowdfunding Platform

BY Rachael Everly ,CrowdFund Beat Guest Post, Crowdfunding platforms are a product of technological advancement. However at the end of the day they are a financial solution and their success is dependent on the economic situation at a given time. Many businesses prosper when the economy is booming and all is good. Crowdfunding on the other hand has always prospered when the economy is not doing well, and even during the worst recessions. During the last recession of 2008, there was a great lack of confidence among banks. This led to a drying up of sources of finance for the small business owner and for…

Targeted IRRs in Crowdfunding

By Mark Roderick CrowdFunding Beat  Sr. contributing editor and crowdfunding attorney with Flaster/Greenberg PC.   Targeted internal rate of return, or IRR, is used widely to advertise deals on Crowdfunding sites, real estate and otherwise. While target IRR means something to sophisticated sponsors and investors, its widespread and uncritical use makes me a little uneasy, for the following reasons: If pressed, many people don’t know what IRR really means. Investors assume that a higher IRR is better than a lower IRR, but many couldn’t explain exactly why or how. IRR can be misleading. For example, a bond purchased for $100 that pays interest of $10 at the end…

By Cheryl Clements, Crowdfund Beat Guest Post, Founder + CEO of PieShell – Crowdfunding for food + beverage, Having a store front or restaurant is expensive, especially when you’re just getting started. Between build-out and equipment costs, starting inventory, licenses, fees, and working capital, starting a brick and mortar business can easily add up to hundreds of thousands of dollars. It’s because of this that many people say that rewards-based crowdfunding isn’t a good option for brick and mortar businesses, but we beg to differ. Crowdfunding is a great option for restaurants, bakeries, coffee shops, and more (if it’s done in the right way and on…
