Here is another platform which is being launched in the wake of the growing crowd-sourced funding revolutions. (See my earlier post on others riding this wave: Kickstarter Rescues Startups that VCs Won’t Touch – But Here’s What’s Missing )
This new platform steers away from the more creative venture base, in which Kickstarter finds its roots, and aims squarely at companies seeking to raise money to build projects or reach business goals.
The crowd-source funding market is a quickly growing and very interesting space. While there is danger in unsophisticated investment, there is clearly room in the capital markets for democratization and disruptive innovation. If these two goals can lead to better, faster, cheaper, and more flexible access to money for business innovation, then it may be that we are truly standing at the edge of the next great economic revolution.
