One recent mountain of data on the crowdfunding world that just arrived contains a plethora of information — read on as I distill some of it for you. Barry James and his team at The Crowd…

Jeremiah Owyang: The Collaborative Economy Will Double This Year

Jeremiah Owyang: The Collaborative Economy Will Double This Year

Jeremiah Owyang | Wall Street Journal | Apr 23, 2014 – By using emerging technologies, people are becoming empowered to get what they need from each other, rather than buying from traditional corporate channels. This means that established big brands are going to have to revise their business models to partner with this empowered crowd. This is according to Sharing is the New Buying, a research report on the growing collaborative economy that I co-authored with Vision Critical, a customer community software company. What we found was both confirming and surprising. The acceptance in mature markets of used-good sharing, like eBay and Craigslist is well…

Radio CrowdFund with Paul Schomer

Radio CrowdFund with Paul Schomer

Paul Schomer. I was born and raised in the Washington, DC, metro area and I’ve been a rock music junkie and musician for much of my rather lengthy life. I wrote a few music stories for Reuters in the early 1990s, produced a independent new music television show in DC in the mid-1990s and then did a brief spell as a segment producer for VH-1. I hosted a weekly songwriters showcase in DC during the late 1990s. https://soundcloud.com/thesuburbs/turn-the-radio-on From 2000 to the end of 2004 (drum roll, please) I worked at National Public Radio as a senior online producer for music programming, launching NPRJazz.org and…

Crowdfunding and Innovation Management

Crowdfunding and Innovation Management

    By Owen Ray,  We all know the importance of continuous innovation, and around here we’ve been talking a lot about harnessing the power of the crowd to keep the idea machine running. Crowdsourcing is a great way to generate new ideas and solve tough problems, but it’s only a part of your innovation management process. With all of these ideas and solutions pouring in from the crowd, you’re eventually going to need to pony up some cash to execute on them. Again, involving the crowd to secure funding can not only nab some dough, but it can be in integral piece of the puzzle that helps…

Raising Money For Startups & Getting A Jump On The Government

Raising Money For Startups & Getting A Jump On The Government

If you’re mixing social enterprise and regulatory change, the watchword is patience. Just ask Sang Lee. When the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (JOBS) was passed last year,  Lee was as excited as anyone else who saw the potential for social enterprise startups to be able to tap a new source of financing–equity crowdfunding from both accredited and non-accredited investors. But he also knew, even after it became official, real implementation wouldn’t happen overnight. In fact, the former investment banker started his own social enterprise, New York-based Return on Change, an online funding platform for-profit high-impact startups–that includes cleantech and social enterprises, among others–in 2011, well before it…

Capital Crowdfunding in Canada: Recent developments

Capital Crowdfunding in Canada: Recent developments

The recent arrival of the KickStarter platform in Canada serves as a reminder that some interesting developments in the regulation of “crowdfunding” have been occurring in the last several months. This article focuses on the exemption granted to MaRS VX by the Ontario Securities Commission, which recently authorized the very first capital crowdfunding platform in Canada. Crowdfunding is a way of financing a project or business by pooling small financial contributions obtained through Web platforms (such as La Ruche in the Quebec City region) and making use of social media for advertising and solicitation.
