The Crowdfunding’s Industry Evolution

CrowdFundBeat News Wire,By Kostas Kotsiopoulos, Global Sales Director at Profile Software. Since the launch of the first crowdfunding platform in Europe the industry has experienced immense changes. The financial crisis along with the new regulations created the need for alternative finance and banking models. These may well include more innovative products and banking proposals, digital media utilisation, big data management and more. The resulting regulatory fines and slowdown of the overall economy added more burden to the banking operations, making financing even more bureaucratic.   In the meantime, while banks were trying to cope with all these changes and struggling to measure and manage liquidity, crowdfunding…

Weighing Crowdfunding VS. Small- Business Loans for Financial Growth

Weighing Crowdfunding VS. Small- Business Loans for Financial Growth

By: Daniel Ling, CrowdFundBeat guest Editor & offerboard.com Studies have found that successful crowdfunded projects or businesses depend on two main drivers: the marketability of the product and a large number of backers. Having a sexy, marketable project or product allows for greater ease with outreach. Furthermore, it’s critical to have a large support base of friends, family, community members, and online followers. These people function not only as funders but also promoters.

Equally as important as having a supportive network is the choice to fund a…

Star Citizen $64 million in CrowdFunding

A number of crowdfunding campaigns have raised substantial sums over the past year or two, including$10 million for the Pebble watch and $13 million for the Coolest cooler. But the Star Citizen space-simulator game has raised so much from fans of creator Chris Roberts that it makes both of those look like a child’s lemonade stand — this week, the team behind the game announced that it had crossed the $63 million mark, and the money is still rolling in. Star Citizen began with a Kickstarter campaign almost exactly two years ago, in November of 2012, a campaign that initially sought to raise $500,000 and wound up raising more…

iFunding to launch first real-estate crowdfunding app

REW Staff | MARCH 4, 2014 | Real Estate Weekly – Tech startup iFunding is developing a real-estate crowdfunding app for smartphones and tablets.

CrowdBouncer raised $437,500 in funding for crowdfunding software

David Robinson | February 10, 2014 | Buffalo News – CrowdBouncer Inc., a Buffalo start-up that provides software to help crowdfunding websites deal with new federal regulations, has raised $437,500 in funding from Rand Capital Corp. and a state-backed investment fund.

Intrastate CrowdFunding

Intrastate CrowdFunding

By Donald Quinn, Low access to capital, heavy regulations and burdensome taxes are some of the reasons businesses choose to leave Maryland. The right crowd-funding legislation can change one of those while we work on changing the other two. In April of 2012, the United States Congress passed a bill that if implemented correctly could have far-reaching consequences on small businesses and jobs across the nation. Called the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) ACT, the ACT has two key components on which the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) would have to take action. The first was to allow companies who planned to sell securities or…

Revolutionizing Real Estate Through Crowdfunding

Revolutionizing Real Estate Through Crowdfunding

The applications for crowdfunding are endless. Up until this point, we’ve seen sundry creative, technological and even bio-medical projects thrive, but one industry slow to join-in has been real estate. Unlike these other areas, it’s hard for entrepreneurs in real estate to get their foot in the door financially, as there are less programs, grants and basic funding options available. But this is precisely why crowdfunding real estate works, and now it’s beginning to catch on. Crowdfunding real estate enables the public to invest in what used to be an exclusive market. Instead of several large contributions made from deep-pocketed investors and private-equity firms, hundreds of locals can pitch-in for ownership of…
