Crowdtilt Collects a Quick $23M from VC’s

San Francisco-based crowdfunding platform Crowdtilt has raised $23 million in a Series B round led byAndreessen Horowitz with participation from SV Angel, DCM, Felicis Ventures, and a number of angels includingSean Parker, Naval Ravikant, Matt Mullenweg, and Alexis Ohanian. Similar to Kickstarter or Indiegogo, Crowdtilt differs in its goal to help everyday users crowdfund smaller, more community-oriented projects. Founded in 2012, Crowdtilt has raised $37 million in funding to date and will put the latest capital toward building out enterprise tools and planning for international expansion.

That kind of crowdfunding has the potential to go viral in a different and broader way than a Kickstarter or Indiegogo campaign. For example, 10 weeks ago was the first time a Harvard Business School student started a Crowdtilt campaign, according to Beshara.
