Five Steps to Raising Institutional Capital

Five Steps to Raising Institutional Capital

By Jorge Newbery,  CrowdFundBeat contributing Guest Editor,  Founder and Chief Executive Officer of American Homeowner Preservation LLC American Homeowner Preservation has raised money from high net worth “accredited” investors since 2011 and consistently generated above-market returns, both financial and social. This past January, we set out to take the next step in our growth and raise institutional capital. We kept hearing that institutional investors were chasing yields. But how could we get them to chase us, or even listen to us? The steps were to connect, differentiate, produce, wait, and close. Connecting is the first and most essential step. We registered to attend several conferences, including…

Vox Populi

Vox Populi

By Steve Cinelli , CrowdFundBeat Sr. Editor, @stevecinelli Earlier we wrote on the power of the crowd to determine the future of Greece via its referendum.  Well, it appears that the voice of the people has become clear, that economic self-detemination is fundamental.  Certainly the “no” vote is not a GREXIT guarantee, rather a possible new positioning to the idiocratic nature of the banking troika.   Yes, the IMF, ECB and EU have lent hundreds of billions to a failed economy, with even a further anemic outlook.  And true, they want their money repaid.   But the debate should and could be elevated into how funds…

5 Methods to Power-up Crowdfunding for Renewable Energy Projects

By David Drake, CrowdFunding Beat Sr. Contributing Editor, Renewable energy sources are said to be the way of the future that will supply the energy needs of the future and new generations. These sources are naturally replenished, and include energy from sunlight, rain, wind, geothermal heat, sea waves, plants and tides. However, harnessing some of these renewable energy sources need high capital costs for the communities and individuals, so alternative financing models are needed to promote their commercial and residential use. Using renewable energy sources will reduce our carbon footprints. Here are 5 alternative ways to finance renewable energy projects: Crowdfunding for Renewable Energy Projects…

Crowdfunding mission to the Moon

By Luke Edwards, When Kickstarter arrived and made projects like the Pebble and Ouya a reality it was clear crowdfunding would go far. But not all the way to the Moon. A British scientist is planning to raise £500 million for a mission to the Moon. <iframe src=”http://player.theplatform.com/p/2E2eJC/nbcNewsOffsite?guid=f_lunarone_141118″ width=”635″ height=”500″ scrolling=”no” frameborder=”0″></iframe>   Backers wishing to take part can pay $100, or about £64, which will buy them a memory disc that will be drilled into the surface of the Moon. Each disc will be about 2-inches in diameter and can be loaded with whatever information the person paying wants. After flying to the Moon using…

Crowdfunding a Mission to the Moon

By Mahesh Anand, A British-led consortium has announced an ambitious space mission named Lunar Mission One that plans to land a robotic probe in the southern polar region of the moon in about a decade. The announcement continues a stream of innovative space developments. The US space agency, NASA, is usually associated with audacious space missions such as the landing of the Curiosity rover on Mars. However, over the recent few months, other space-faring nations have been in the limelight, rivalling the 20th-century space race between the Soviet Union and the US. Just consider the Rosetta mission led by the European Space Agency (ESA) or the Mars Orbiter Mission led by the…

Crowdfund an awesome marine park

Crowdfund an awesome marine park

By Amelia Urry The island nation of Palau may be small — 177 square miles, to be exact — but it is not afraid of making big unprecedented moves when it comes to its fish. In February, the Micronesian country banned all commercial fishing in its waters, a major first for marine sanctuaries. The resulting protected area is about the size of France, and encompasses some of the more pristine oceans in the world. The only problem: How to fund it? You probably know that marine protected areas are great, but they cost a lot of money up front. And when Palau President Remengesau announced the reserve, the country had exactly one boat…

Crowdfunding Business

CrowdFunding Beat News Wire,  A colorful ecosystem is evolving around the investment crowdfunding industry. Companies are developing products and services to alleviate nearly every conceivable pain point of the system’s stakeholders, including businesses (supply), platforms (infrastructure) and investors (demand). In some cases products are being designed from the bottom-up to solve new and unique challenges crowdinvesting markets present. Take Asurvest, for example: it’s structuring an insurance product to cover crowdfunded securities. Insurance products have long existed in other industries but Asurevest is the first, to my knowledge, to go after early-stage private securities. Another great example is CrowdCheck, a company building out a holistic portfolio of products…
