SAN FRANCISCO, CA–(Marketwired – May 8, 2013) – If you are thinking of starting your new crowdfunding campaign, the emerging trend is LIVE Crowdfunding. The space pertains to launch-party events at the initiation of campaigns, creating social media crowd participation and offering a great chance for your successful digital marketing.

On Wednesday, May 8(th) , SVCrowdFund will launch a new public service, LiveCrowdFund.TV, which provides Startups with a unique opportunity to participate and showcase their pitch skills and present their products.

That is the beauty of LIVE Crowdfunding,” said Sydney Armani, CEO of SVCrowdFund in Palo Alto, CA. “Other benefits of LIVE Crowdfunding include supporting community projects, artists, and providing disaster relief,” Armani continues.
