Presidential Politics, Crowdfunding, and Siamese Cash

By Bill Matson, CrowdFundBeat Sr. Contributor, MBA, CFA, CPA (Retired), CFP The presidential race has game-changing implications for the future of crowdfunding in general, as well as for the democratization of individuals’ access to financing via crowdfunding. In particular, Senator Marco Rubio’s presence in the race is likely to generate significant media attention for his promotion of income share agreements (ISAs) as a means of alleviating the current student loan crisis. Though ISA legislation sponsored by Rubio was entitled the “Investing in Student Success Act of 2014,” its enactment would result in virtually anyone being able to offer shares in their future personal income (i.e human capital)…

Why Crowdfunding is Disrupting Finance

Why Crowdfunding is Disrupting Finance

It is truly remarkable to think about the disruption that has resulted from the creation of marketplaces in almost every industry over the last few years.

George Galloway to turn to Kickstarter to fund Anti-Tony-Blair film

George Galloway is to follow in the footsteps of Charlie Kaufman, Spike Lee and Zach Braff by turning to Kickstarter to realise his film-making ambitions.

Ward and Galloway met while the former was making a film about the English Defence League, entitled Far Right, Far…

Meet the Student Crowdfunding Her Unpaid Internship with Harry Reid

Meet the Student Crowdfunding Her Unpaid Internship with Harry Reid Jessica Pardon, an incoming intern for Senator Majority Leader Harry Reid, can’t afford to do the prestigious unpaid internship on her own. So, the college student is crowdfunding the $6,500 she believes it will take to pay for her four-month stint in D.C. And while demonstrating an affinity for fundraising is a good strategy for anyone looking to get into politics, it’s not clear how her new bosses will respond to the spotlight it shines on the whole fact that Harry Reid doesn’t pay his interns in the first place. Pardon, who is 20, is a sophomore…

Fundable Infographic: Explanation of SEC Announcement & What that means for startups and entrepreneurs

July 10th, 2013 was a monumental day for Fundable and startups across the country. The SEC announced that the ban on general solicitation has been removed for small businesses seeking startup capital, allowing for sweeping changes in the way businesses find funding. This announcement is a productive step forward to fully enact the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (JOBS Act) passed in early April of 2012. With general solicitation now permitted, startups have the opportunity raise money from a wider range of investors – potentially accelerating their funding.
