Crowdfunding for investors could prove model is effective

Crowdfunding for investors could prove model is effective

Most conversations we’ve had around crowdfunding revolve around the concept that it allows the average Joe to make an investment in a startup project. But why can’t accredited investors get in on the fun too? Our friend Shane Schick writes about a Bay Street firm, Optimize Capital Markets, about their crowdfunding portal targeted specifically at accredited investors. Most people spending time on the Web are by now familiar with the crowdfunding model put forward by Kickstarter or Indiegogo – a company or individual asks for consumers to fund their campaign in return for the promise of future rewards or picks. But there’s also a movement…

Crowdtilt creates customizable open-source crowdfunding platform

Crowdtilt creates customizable open-source crowdfunding platform

Thanks to the JOBS Act and the rise of Kickstarter, Indiegogo and the parade of startups that have emerged in their wake, crowdfunding has gone mainstream. However, according to the minds behind Crowdtilt — the Y Combinator-incubated platform that caters to the many types of “group fundraising” that fall outside the purview of Kickstarter — this is just Phase One. The Crowdfunding Era is just beginning. While the Kickstarters and Indiegogos continue to dominate headlines in the crowdfunding space, a growing set of niche platforms have emerged to handle the spillover from projects that don’t fit under the traditional umbrella. And some are bypassing platforms altogether: Star Citizen,…

Ubuntu Edge smartphone fails to reach $32m crowdfunding target

Ubuntu Edge smartphone fails to reach $32m crowdfunding target

Project to build a phone running both Android and Ubuntu mobile desktop OS put on hold despite hitting record pledge total A British attempt to raise a record $32m (£20.5m) through crowdfunding to build top-end smartphones has raised a unprecedented $12m, but because it failed to hit its target will now return all the money. The Ubuntu Edge crowdfunding project run by UK software companyCanonical began 30 days ago, aiming to raise more than triple the previous record, which had been set by the Pebble smartwatch. That raised $10.2m last year. But despite hopes by Canonical founder Mark Shuttleworth of last-minute funding from a handset company to enable him to build 40,000 phones, the…

David Drake with Upstart CEO Dave Girouard on Crowdfunding

David Drake is an early-stage equity expert and the founder and chairman of LDJ Capital. Getting through college is tough and even more so in a recession. The Consumer Financial Protection Board (CFPB) estimates that Americans are currently carrying $165 billion worth of private student loans and nearly a total of $1.2 trillion worth of student debt. I recently spoke with Dave Girouard, former president of Google Enterprise and now the founder and CEO of Upstart, a crowdfunding service that helps people who are just starting their careers raise capital from backers in exchange for a small share of their future income.

Crowdfunding: 3 Things You Should NEVER do!

By Matt Cooke, Founder/CEO of Crowd Fund Buzz 1. Don’t set a monetary goal higher than you actually need People who are new to crowdfunding often make the mistake of setting a monetary goal higher than what they actually need. Frequent scenario: Crowdfunder needs $50,000, but figures an extra $25,000 would be nice, too. Don’t do this. Having a high goal can cause your project to get off to a slow start. It can also cause potential backers to feel you have an unrealistic goal. This mistake is made more often on sites like Indiegogo where the crowdfunder receives all of the funds raised versus…

David Lynch’s Son Launches Kickstarter Campain for narrative “Gray House”

Indiewire has exclusively learned that filmmaker and painter Austin Lynch, son to David, has launched a Kickstarter campaign to finance his latest project “Gray House,” a hybrid drama that interweaves both documentary and narrative footage to frame a “conversation about nature, identity, consumerism and progress” (per the release). Lynch is looking for $25,000 to help fund his feature. Lynch worked with his father and filmmaker Jason S. on the Webby Award-winning series “Interview Project,” and has also directed a 10-part documentary chronicling the production of Terrence Malick’s “The New World,” and “Making ‘There Will Be Blood,'” a film about the making of Paul Thomas Anderson’s…

New crowdfund plan aids startups with expertise, cash

New crowdfund plan aids startups with expertise, cash

Crowdfunding gets a new twist Thursday with the launch of an online platform that offers startups ideas and expertise as well as cash. The new platform called JumpStart Fund, marrying crowd-sourcing with crowdfunding, comes from the California-based online community called Jumpstarter, which has been involved in matching investors with technology opportunities. While raising money from the masses on the Internet has become common at websites such as Kickstarter and Kiva, the new fund goes further by adding patented technology and problem-solving perspectives to the formula. “We are trying to give startups tools they need to make their product more successful,” JumpStart Fund chief and co-founder Dirk Ahlborn told AFP.…

Sylvester Stallone and director John Herzfeld turn to Kickstarter to finish ‘Reach Me’

Sylvester Stallone and director John Herzfeld turn to Kickstarter to finish ‘Reach Me’

Established filmmakers have been embracing Kickstarter with open arms this year, and now writer-director John Herzfeld is trying crowdfunding with a slight wrinkle on the formula: he’s looking for $250,000 to finish a movie he’s largely already shot. Reach Meis a film about 12 characters that are affected in various ways by an inspirational book written by a reclusive football coach. Actors like Sylvester Stallone, Danny Aiello, Ryan Kwanten (True Blood), and Lauren Cohan (The Walking Dead) litter the cast, but according to the Kickstarter campaign one of the film’s main investors dropped out during principal photography. Herzfeld and producer Rebekah Chaney put their own money into the movie to…

Byco micro-financing platform is crowdfunding Fashion’s Next Big Designers

Jesse Finkelstein has created an online “one-stop-shop” for designers that facilitates production, with a little help from investors large and small Fashion design schools teach their students how to sketch a design, drape or tailor a piece of clothing, sew it together, and, eventually, create a coherent collection. What’s less taught are the nuts and bolts of what happens after the design process: sampling, production, distribution and financing, all of which can delay (or halt completely) the debut of a designer’s pieces. One way to correct this barrier, thought entrepreneur Jesse Finkelstein, was to create an online “one-stop-shop” for designers, fashion and otherwise, that facilitates the production parts, letting…

Reports this week claim that the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is pushing to regulate online crowdfunding sites next year amid concerns about customer safeguards. John Williams, Managing Partner at Kuber Ventures states: ‘’All investments by their very nature carry with them a varying degree of risk, but most consumers would expect them also to be firmly regulated, to ensure best practice and consumer protection”. ‘’The Government introduced Enterprise Investment Schemes (EIS) to encourage people to invest in small business start-ups and benefit from tax efficient investments within a controlled environment. But by investing in small business through crowdfunding websites, investors leave themselves exposed”. Kuber Ventures is the UK’s first multi-manager platform for comparing,…

SAN FRANCISCO- Intersection of Real Estate and Technology has emerged as a leading space for startups and established companies alike and a new wave of Real Estate Technology (or RealTech for short) companies are beginning to disrupt the real estate market at a rapid pace.

Historic Theatre seeks online crowdfunding for a digital upgrade

It’s just a novelty. It’s never going to last. Or will it? That question has dogged every movie-technology upgrade since silents became talkies and black-and-white went Technicolor. And that’s the question dogging a timeless movie-going couple in a frankly hilarious Kickstarter video — a so-called “Kigstarter” video — posted by downtown Vancouver’s historic Kiggins movie theater. The Kiggins is looking for an $85,000 kick from Kickstarter — which means you — by Monday if it is to join the 21st century and upgrade its movie-showing equipment from celluloid film to digital. It’s not an elective decision, according to Kiggins owner Dan Wyatt. Wyatt said the…

A new Web company is taking advantage of the trend of Internet-enabled public funding of projects by offering to connect inventors of smaller medical devices from around the world with people who can give them the cash they need to get off the ground. “There are people in many different countries that have bright ideas, and they don’t have the contacts in order to show them,” said Daniel Yachia, co-founder and chief medical officer of the new online crowdfunding company B-a-MedFounder. “If you’re not well-connected to big companies or funding yourselves, it’s very difficult to get…

New Twist on Crowdfunding for Startups

New Twist on Crowdfunding for Startups

Looking for capital? There’s a new way to crowdsource it. A pair of online platforms are offering a new twist on the usual crowdfunding model for small businesses. Entrepreneurs can post their vitals, their business ideas and how much cash they need—and then solicit donations from interested backers. So far, that’s familiar. The twist is in what backers get in return. The entrepreneurs agree to give backers a small percentage of their earnings each month for a certain period. In effect, they’re selling a temporary equity stake in themselves. Getting a Boost The sites, Upstart and Pave, aren’t designed to completely fund a business idea…

Volumental’s browser-based 3D scanner hits Kickstarter goal

Volumental’s browser-based 3D scanner hits Kickstarter goal

SUMMARY: The Scan-to-Print web app uses a depth camera to create digital models that are compatible with 3D printers. 3D scanners are an increasingly popular tool for anyone to quickly create designs for a 3D printer. Instead of laboriously building a model in a software program, you can just scan a physical object and print the resulting digital file. Volumental, a Stockholm-based startup founded last year, is taking that process to the cloud with its Scan-to-Print web app. Users scan an object with a depth camera, such as a Kinect, and watch as it loads automatically in their browser. A little more than halfway through…

The site, which charges a prep fee of $5,000 for an assortment of services prior to a crowdfunding campaign, has drawn a mixed reaction from entrepreneurs and competitors. While the latter derided the Boston-based firm’s move as a “marketing” gimmick, entrepreneurs were curious about returns on…

NEW YORK (TheStreet — Here’s the situation. You’ve unintentionally run up some credit card debt and the interest is so high that it seems like you can’t get ahead. Your big bank has no desire to help you out, and you wouldn’t dream of asking a friend or family member to help you out of this jam. But what if a crowd of random strangers steps up? That’s exactly the scenario at sites like Prosper.com and LendingClub.com. Borrowers apply for loans and the websites screen the applicants to make sure the lenders will pay the money back. Only 10% get approved, so it’s not a…

Crowdfunding Takes On Hunger, Health And Human Rights

Crowdfunding Takes On Hunger, Health And Human Rights

Kickstarter meets Kiva meets TOMS: That’s the idea behind a soon-to-be launched social enterprise and crowdfunding web site by the name of Reciprocity & Co. The basic concept is this: Founded by Gainsville, Fla.-based Sam McPherson, the site promotes projects aimed at addressing major areas of need, like health or human rights abuses. But the way it happens is consumers buy an organic cotton tote bag or backpack for $25, and $5 from those revenues goes to help an organization involved with one of those projects. Example: the Alaska Sudan Medical Project, which is trying to build a school in South Sudan able to supply 400 children with clean…

The director defended the method of raising money for the Newest Hottest Spike Lee Joint about ‘human beings who are addicted to blood’ as necessary in industry dominated by big studios.

AngelList Tells SEC New Fundraising Rules Will Kill Startups

AngelList Tells SEC New Fundraising Rules Will Kill Startups

Startups could face a “death sentence” one year ban from fundraising if they violate awkward new general solicitation fundraising rules, AngelList co-founder Naval Ravikant wrote in a letter to the SEC this week. Ravikant says the Regulation D and Form D changes that go into effect soon are designed for Wall Street, not Silicon Valley, and must change or they’ll harm rather than help startups. Last month the SEC voted to implement some parts of the JOBS Act, including lifting the ban on General Solicitation. This allows startups and funds to openly advertise that they’re looking for investors, rather than quietly using private communication to solicit money. The theory is that…

Crowd Funding: New Way to Reach Seniors in Need

Crowd Funding: New Way to Reach Seniors in Need

While crowd funding isn’t a new concept, it is a changing one. Drawing on both charitable giving and microfinance, crowd funding — sometimes called crowdsourcing — has become a way for individuals to collectively donate funds for everything from artistic endeavors to college tuition to medical expenses and everything in between. People and causes have long solicited donations from the population in general. In the mid-1880s, newspaper publisher Joseph Pulitzer asked for donations to help complete the pedestal for the Statue of Liberty and raised more than $100,000. Today, hundreds of websites have sprung up to allow individuals and organizations to raise funds through private…

Why Crowdfunding is Disrupting Finance

It is truly remarkable to think about the disruption that has resulted from the creation of marketplaces in almost every industry over the last few years.

Dog sitter while on vacation? There’s DogVacay.  Even scientists can help enlist a global network of researchers in a marketplace called Science Exchange.

The Indentured Future

The Indentured Future

Two weekends ago, President Obama provided a thoughtful interview to The New York Times about the frayed state of the country’s social and economic fabric. The president highlighted points about America’s widening income inequality, unemployment and our ephemeral belief in the American Dream. True, economic mobility is fostered with more employment and rising income levels, but to ascend the economic ladder, the colloquy should center on establishing paths of wealth creation. Decades ago, the late Dr. Louis Kelso posited the theory of binary economics, simply stating that there were two types of “earners”: “wage earners”, those who work for a paycheck which alone provided the extent of…

The Kickstarter Culture Wars

Plans to grow genetically modified plants ignited a firestorm at Kickstarter. They shouldn’t have Whether lit by Fairies in a children’s book or special-effects magic in Avatar, the sight of plants glowing in the dark has a special charm. We respond to lighted plants with wonder and joy. So it’s not surprising that a plan to produce glow-in-the-dark plants proved wildly popular on Kickstarter, the crowdfunding website. In 44 days, the project raised more than $484,000–more than seven times the goal of $65,000–from 8,433 donors. Using genes from bioluminescent bacteria or fireflies, the project aims to create a glowing version of a small, inedible plant…

Crowdfunding Gives Health and Fitness Gadgets a Real Workout

Robert Mullins, CFB Sr. Staff Writer In the wearable computer space, Google Glass has generated the buzz, but the Pebble watch has generated results. Pebble Technology had raised $375,000 from a venture capitalist for a wristwatch computer that would share information with a user’s Apple or Android OS smartphone, but was unable to raise more. In April 2012, Pebble signed up with the crowdfunding company Kickstarter and took off. By May of that year, Pebble had raised a total of more than $10 million and by July 4 of this year, it had sold 85,000 units of the $150 watch. Pebble Technology is seen as…

Is Equity Crowdfunding an Oxymoron

Is Equity Crowdfunding an Oxymoron

While people wait for the SEC to implement rules for equity crowdfunding authorized under the JOBS Act of 2012, many companies are racing forward with project based crowding. Research just published in an Amazon Kindle book “Is Equity Crowdfunding an Oxymoron” indicated that entrepreneurs with some prior track record are much better off raising capital via rewards based crowdfunding than trying to attract venture capital. Besides not giving up ownership the campaigners can raise the money more rapidly than going the venture capital route. Crowdfunders with the most success are developers who already have a product on the market. The Veronica Mars campaign on KickStarter…
