5 mistakes that kill crowdfunding campaigns

Elaine Pofeldt | CNBC | July 29, 2014 – Raking in $102,824 on Indiegogo in a campaign that ended July 3, the start-up Ambronite, maker of a drinkable organic “supermeal,” achieved a goal that most crowdfunders would envy: It exceeded its $50,000 target by more than 100 percent. “It was really exciting to see so many people around the world fund our product,” said CEO Simo Suoheimo, one of five co-founders at the start-up, which has offices in San Francisco and in Helsinki, Finland, where the young entrepreneurs developed the natural food product in a business accelerator.

Buona Notte, Accredited Investor

By Steven Cinelli, Founder | CEO PRIMARQ/REMARQ, Certainly over the last two years, with the introduction of the JOBS Act, the discussion of “accredited investor” has never been so fashionable. A concept precipitated in the aftermath of the Crash of 1929, within the construct of the Securities Act of 1933, the objective was to enable small companies an efficient avenue to raise capital without the laborious and costly effort of filing a full registration statement. Simply, as long as such companies sold their securities to those of financial means, there were limited disclosure requirements. The logic was that such investors of means had the financial…

What To Look For In A Crowdfund Investment

 By Jim Atkins, Crowdfunding is a new buzzword among investors, but few understand how to look at opportunities that are likely to fly and waste time pledging cash to no-hope projects. Picking the right crowdfunding deal is hard work and many investors do not understand how the process works. The plain truth is most crowdfunding projects do not achieve lift-off because the organisers put forward a poor pitch or are looking at raising cash for pipedreams. Crowdfunding pitches are often a last-chance saloon for deals that will never work and have been turned down by every other fund raising channel. Here are some tips to weed…

The Future Of Crowdfunding: Where To From Here?

By Freddie Dawson ,Forbes Contributor Much has been made about the ability of crowdfunding to transform new-business finance. Whether it is through a rewards based model, a peer-to-peer lending model or an equity finance model, the crowd has been theorised as the answer to a lack of appetite for risk amongst traditional finance institutions coupled with the always-present financial constraints placed on innovation. Carrying crowdfunding through to its furthest potential conclusions, it has been theorised that it could take the place of banks for many functions – both for entrepreneurs and investors. It has also been put forward as a replacement to other forms of…

Crowdfunding sector growing some grey hairs

Crowdfunding sector growing some grey hairs

By Konrad Putzier A good way of measuring how the real estate crowdfunding industry has changed in the past months is to count gray hairs. Last winter, it was hard to find anyone over 40 at the nascent industry’s conferences. Now, a noticeable influx of distinguished real estate executives, along with their firms, is changing the field. Since its inception, real estate crowdfunding has been dominated by young tech entrepreneurs with lofty visions of democratizing investment and little ties to the industry establishment. This dominance is starting to fray. In April, the decades-old real estate investment banking firm, Carlton Group, announced the launch of its…
