VCs and Angels – don’t bother until you Crowdfund?

By Hector Botero  CrowdFundBeat Sr. Contributing  Editor, President & CEO at iCrowdNewswire, LLC Could it be that venture capitalists, angel and other investors will one day require that you crowdfund your ideas before they will seriously consider your company for investment?

Ebola Research Gets a Boost From Crowdfunding

BY CHRIS MORRIS, The public quickly responded. In less than two weeks, the fundraising effort on Crowdrise has collected $99,450, putting it just shy of its $100,000 goal. As health-care officials scramble to contain the worsening Ebola outbreak around the world, an unusual fundraising effort from a leading institute has struck a chord with the general public. Dr. Erica Saphire and the Scripps Research Institute were part of the consortium that developed the ZMapp serum, the experimental drug believed to have cured five people infected with Ebola this summer. To create a road map for new treatments, though, they needed new equipment—and fast. The quickest way to…

Crowdfunding Business

CrowdFunding Beat News Wire,  A colorful ecosystem is evolving around the investment crowdfunding industry. Companies are developing products and services to alleviate nearly every conceivable pain point of the system’s stakeholders, including businesses (supply), platforms (infrastructure) and investors (demand). In some cases products are being designed from the bottom-up to solve new and unique challenges crowdinvesting markets present. Take Asurvest, for example: it’s structuring an insurance product to cover crowdfunded securities. Insurance products have long existed in other industries but Asurevest is the first, to my knowledge, to go after early-stage private securities. Another great example is CrowdCheck, a company building out a holistic portfolio of products…

Crowdfunding To Combat Malaria

Edward Marks – , May 9th, 2014 – The Global Dispatch – A recent crowdfunding campaign, launched on May 06, 2014, has already received national attention for it’s lofty but entirely feasible goal: eliminate the scourge of malaria by raising $250,000 to develop a robot to accelerate vaccine development. Malaria is a vector borne disease, transmitted by the bite of a mosquito. During the mosquito’s blood meal, it regurgitates Plasmodium, a parasitic protozoa that embeds itself in the patient’s liver until it matures, releasing its progeny to begin destroying the patient’s red blood cells. There is no cure, and antibiotics only combat the disease-causing parasite…

11-year-old launches crowdfunding initiative for friend with brain tumor

(KMSP) – Amelia Sawalich is only 11, but she took it upon herself to facilitate a crowdfunding initiative through Piggybackr to help her young friend who was diagnosed with a brain tumor.
