Crowdfunding Lesson From Habitat: Empower Your Volunteers

Crowdfunding Lesson From Habitat: Empower Your Volunteers

Dave McMurtry is a player in Silicon Valley. I mean that in the very best sense. He is a graduate of the Stanford Graduate School of Business and has spent much of his career in the tech community, including more than half a decade at tech giant Intuit. He more recently served as the CEO of Loomia, a social media company. In 2005, Dave wanted to take a break from his career to give back. As a pilot, his first choice was to volunteer some flight time to Doctors without Borders, but when he found out there weren’t any of those volunteer opportunities available at that time he decided…

Crowdfunding Nuts And Bolts: Tackling Fulfilment & Campaign Rewards

Crowdfunding Nuts And Bolts: Tackling Fulfilment & Campaign Rewards

One of the biggest challenges for very successful crowdfunded projects, as I mentioned in my last piece on crowdfunding, is how to deal with sending out all those rewards. Distributing digital rewards is quite simple, but physical items can be more problematic, especially if you get significantly more supporters than you had anticipated.

The Kickstarter Of Solar Gets Ambitious With Military Housing Installation

  Mosaic has done a pretty good job of introducing the concept of crowdfunding to solar.

So far, the Oakland-based startup has successfully funded $2 million towards 16 solar installations from normal people investing.

But now, it looks like the crowdfunding vehicle is getting a lot more ambitious. A recent project listed on the company’s…

Double Fine Misadventure: First Major Kickstarter Game Hits A Snag

Double Fine Misadventure: First Major Kickstarter Game Hits A Snag

Tim Schafer writes candidly about his game ‘Broken Age’ running out of money, but this is just the nature of the beast. Once upon a time, there was a website designed to crowdfund small, creative projects—a garage band’s new self-recorded album; a short film; a dance video. That website was called Kickstarter. Then, along came Tim Schafer and Double Fine Adventure, the video game now known as Broken Age, which transformed the site into an indie video game crowdfunding platform overnight. Kickstarter termed it the “Blockbuster Effect.” Well, not just a video game funding platform, but these days many of the biggest projects—from the Ouya to Star…
