British Crowdfunding Site To Allow Cross-border Investment
By harriswesson590, 10:54

Last year crowdfunding websites helped companies and individuals worldwide raise $2.7 billion from members of the public, an 81 percent increase on 2011. Seedrs, through which individuals can invest as little as 10 pounds ($16.19), said on Monday investors from across the European Union and other European countries including Norway and Switzerland could now back companies or raise funding through the site. "We kept getting emails from people saying 'why won't you let me invest or raise (money)?' ...

LearnIrish.com Launches Crowdfunding Campaign on Indiegogo

LearnIrish.com Crowdfunding Campaign The Irish language is recognised as being one of the oldest written languages in the world but is classified by Unesco as being 'definitely endangered'. On average, a language dies every fortnight and it's predicted that half of the world's 7000 languages will die out within the next 100 years. LearnIrish.com aims to help make the Irish language and learning resources accessible to more people around the world. If funded, LearnIrish.com hopes to deliver a comprehensive Irish language course complete with games and quizzes to monitor progress. They've set a goal of $7000 and have just 25 days to raise it. Funding options start at just $10 for 12 months' access (or $8 if you're early). The develeper, Peter Stranney, has been learning Irish for over 7 years and recognises the difficulty faced by people who want to further their knowledge of the language. His aim is to develop a online course which is easy to use and with a clear route for progression. He has native Irish speakers lined up to help with the development of the course but just needs the funding to make it possible.

Local Software May Jumpstart Crowdfunding
By harriswesson590, 02:42

Shakina Nayfack Discusses Crowdfunding Gender Confirmation Surgery

Other estimates place the value of crowdfunding in the coming years even higher, according to Callahan, but the future of http://finance.yahoo.com/news/internet-business-marketing-guide-contractors-010601089.html the industry depends on regulations pending at the Securities and Exchange Commission, he said. The 2012 passage of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups, or JOBS Act, launched crowdfunding as a legitimate investment opportunity rather than simply a community fundraising tool, but the law also brought with it regulations for the budding industry. The JOBS Act allows for investors to receive equity in companies, rather than simply getting small gifts in exchange for investment. This means increased risk and chance for fraud, which is where the SEC comes in. In October, the SEC released proposed rules that would allow anyone to invest in startup companies without having to register with the SEC first, but concern over protecting unaccredited investors led to other proposed rules. Unaccredited investors are those with annual income under $200,000 or net worth of less than $1 million, under existing SEC rules. Rules for these investors are in a 90-day discussion period at the SEC, expected to end in mid-January.

The Twin Cities' top crowdfunding deals

CNBC's Hampton Pearson reports. During the 2012 holiday season, the growth in online giving outpaced the growth in e-commerce . This season promises to grow even further. One reason is crowdfunding. Blackbaud , which offers technology for fundraising, estimates crowdfunding campaigns made up about 10 percent of online donations, bringing in $2.4 billion to charities for all of last year. Small charities are using websites like Fundly , Indiegogo and Causevox to raise money for a wide variety of causes. Crowdfunding solicits small amounts of money from a large number of individuals to finance a project by leveraging social media sites like Facebook , Twitter and LinkedIn to reach out to networks of friends, family and colleagues. While it makes up a small slice of the $300 billion in total charitable contributions, crowdfunding has the potential to increase giving.

Females who identify as women use the women's restroom. Males who identify as men dress in suits and ties or tuxedos for formal events. It is the way it is, and that fits well for many people. But for trans people living in a culture where the gender binary rules all, it is a daily battle. Image via kimberlykv on Flickr.com 4. Gender Expression Out of the three terms -- "sex," "gender identity," and "gender expression" -- which do you think we notice most about people on a daily basis? If it were a person's sex, then we would have to see under that person's clothes or test his or her chromosomes (and even then we could get a conflicting report). If it were a person's gender identity, we would have to either ask that person how he or she identifies or somehow get inside the brain and find the answer for ourselves. By process of elimination, you guessed it: it's gender expression.

New Equity Crowdfunding Rules Could Change Startup Game
By harriswesson590, 18:34

The Securities and Exchange Commission on Wednesday put forward rules that would help guide a new investment strategy known as equity crowdfunding. Regular investors, meaning most Americans over the age of 18, may soon be able to invest in startups via crowdfunding in exchange for company equity. Previously, only wealthy investors (known as accredited investors) were able to invest in startups in exchange for equity. See also: Social Web for Good: Crowdfunding Better Communities The new rules would allow startups to raise up to $1 million in a 12-month period from donors online. Now when donors invest in projects on sites like Indiegogo , they could receive company stock instead of a gadget or t-shirt. Wednesday's rules proposed by the SEC were a long-time coming. Equity crowdfunding first came to light as a provision of the JOBS Act , which was passed and signed in April 2012.

Equity Crowdfunding In Europe: Where It Stands

italy-flag The problem is that the regulations and guardrails necessary to make it safe will also remove the agility. For example, one of the proposed regulations would limit investors in the crowd to $2000. If a startup only needs $10,000, then they need to attract at least 5 investors among the crowd. The impact of having 5 equity holders in exchange for $10,000 could be enough to make the founder wish she just bootstrapped it. The other, more serious issues have to do with valuation and liquidity. Determining exactly what percentage of company a crowd funding investor is buying will be very difficult. Care will need to be taken to ensure that the amount of equity traded is fair for the amount of capital invested. Accredited investors take valuation very seriously, yet there is the real possibility that unsophisticated investors will not understand exactly what they are buying. Furthermore, proposed regulations on new crowd funding platforms will need to make it very clear to the investor that the investment is not liquid and that there is a chance that the money will be lost. Through his research, York University Professor Douglas Cumming has found that increased government regulation helps attract investors to equity crowdfunding. In our recent paper based on Canadian survey data where equity crowdfunding is not permitted but nevertheless currently being contemplated, we found that some entrepreneurs and potential portals had a preference for more lax regulation, while investors preferred more stringent regulation along with steps to better inform and educate investors. In view of the global online marketplace and the ability of investors to move capital to the jurisdiction that best suits their interests, the data in our paper is consistent with the view crowdfunding markets will flourish where there is a better set of regulations that meets investors demands and serves entrepreneurs and portals interests. Likewise, in our related paper based on Australian data where equity crowdfunding is currently permitted, we found better disclosure by entrepreneurs is very highly correlated with entrepreneurs success in raising capital. Instead of crowdfunding equity, Univeristy of Colorado Professor Andrew A. Schwartz believes it might be easier for startup founders to offer debt.

Expert FAQ: What Should Investors Know about Equity Crowdfunding?

An issuer would not otherwise be permitted to advertise, directly or indirectly, the terms of an offering made in reliance on the crowdfunding exemption. The SEC did not propose limitations on how http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/11/27/market-chatter-idUSL4N0JC0P320131127 the issuer would distribute such notices, and the release accompanying the proposed rules contemplates the publication of such notices on social media platforms.

Crowdfund Your Assassination ? If You?ve Got The Bitcoin
By harriswesson590, 10:27

And now, thanks to one pseudo-samurai, you can buy murder and anarchy too. Kuwabatake Sanjuro introduced the Assassination Market to Forbes, which described the website as a kind of Kickstarter for political assassinations in a Monday report. The website lets users make anonymous contributions to bounties on government officials, which so far include National Security Agency Director General Keith Alexander at 10 bitcoins, President Barack Obama with 40 bitcoins, and bitcoin public enemy No. 1: Federal Reserve Chair Ben Bernanke, for 124.14 bitcoins, or $75,000. Bernanke has expressed the need to regulate digital currency since its emerging popularity as a viable form of alternative currency a sentiment that has enraged many of its supporters. According to Sanjuro, who lifted his alias from the famous samurai film Yojimbo, the would-be assassin just has to prove they did the deed to collect the bounty. Thanks to this system, a world without wars, dragnet panopticon-style surveillance, nuclear weapons, armies, repression, money manipulation, and limits to trade is firmly within our grasp for but a few bitcoins per person, Sanjuro wrote in an email to Forbes. I also believe that as soon as a few politicians gets offed and they realize theyve lost the war on privacy, the killings can stop and we can transition to a phase of peace, privacy and laissez-faire, Sanjuro said. The self-described anarchist, who plans to keep 1 percent of bounties as a commission for his services, said he was motivated to launch his crowdfunded killers hub after the widespread NSA spying came to light earlier this summer.

'Do You Really Want Dumb Money?' Barry Schuler, On Crowdfund Equity's Dark Sides

It is fascinating to contemplate, Schuler maintains. However, even in the face of these concerns, Schuler welcomes (as I do) the benefits equity crowdfunding will bring to the plethora of companies that arent suited for funding by traditional VCs. Finally, they gain additional options. Tongue in cheek Schuler also pointed to the boon equity crowdfunding presents to the legal industry as so many additional forms of filing and disclosure come forward, and many new avenues of litigation emerge. He points to the boon for professional communicators as well. (Hey! Thats personal but he does have a point.) To these points, CEO enablement and acceleration company CEO Space is providing education and resources to assist entrepreneurs in addressing the disclosure and filing criteria of crowdfunding (of both the traditional and equity varieties) particularly as the SEC has lifted its ban on general solicitation. The company provides worksheets and materials to help entrepreneurs and their attorneys meet filing requirements here .

Meet The 'assassination Market' Creator Who's Crowdfunding Murder With Bitcoins

Wall Street crowd funding real estate firm opens Miami office

Rodrigo Nino, founder and CEO of Prodigy Networks This alone, however, doesnt guarantee that only high-quality companies make it through to investors. What are some other factors that might lead to greater accuracy in the vetting of businesses? Focus? Expertise? Experience? Our own focus is on one industry: consumer products/retail. We chose this area because the return profile of angel investments in the consumer sector is very strong and because that is where our investing experience lies. According to the Kauffman Foundation, angel investments in consumer and retail have generated average returns of 3.6x invested capital in just over four years (while the Kauffman Foundations data set is limited, it is the best data available).

Screen Shot 2013-11-17 at 5.48.50 PM The idea dates back to the cypherpunk movement of the mid-1990s, whose adherents dreamt of using encryption tools to weaken the government and empower individuals. Former Intel Intel engineer and Cypherpunk Mailing List founder Tim May argued that uncrackable secret messages and untraceable digital currency would lead to assassination markets in his Cryptoanarchists Manifesto written in 1992. A few years later, another former Intel engineer named Jim Bell proposed a system of funding assassinations through encrypted, anonymous donations in an essay he called Assassination Politics . The system he described closely matches Sanjuros scheme, though anonymity tools like Tor and Bitcoin were mostly theoretical at the time. As (visit site) Bell wrote then: If only 0.1% of the population, or one person in a thousand, was willing to pay $1 to see some government slimeball dead, that would be, in effect, a $250,000 bounty on his head. Further, imagine that anyone considering collecting that bounty could do so with the mathematical certainty that he could not be identified, and could collect the reward without meeting, or even talking to, anybody who could later identify him.

Nino said the Miami office will cater to accredited investors interested in the Manhattan projects and upcoming Miami developments. The Miami space is a milestone in Prodigy Networks journey to lead and innovate within the real estate crowd-funding sector he said in a news release. For Prodigys latest venture in lower Manhattan, AKA Wall Street, it partnered with Korman Communities and Shorewood Real Estate Group LLC. The plan is for Prodigy to invest $25 million through crowd funding for the $110 million project. The building will become rental units for people to use when visiting New York.

Crowdfund this: Rubicon's 200 3D scanner

The webcam captures an image of the object with and without the lasers painting its surface before the turntable rotates by 0.45 degrees and the process starts again. After 800 steps and a full 360-degree rotation, the software compares each of the two images to determine the differences and therefore the shape of the object. The scanned object can then be output either directly as a raw mesh or as a more structured and optimised object ready for replicating using a 3D printer or modelling in software. The Rubicon 3D is powered by a arduino and takes about three minutes to complete a full scan of an object.

Now the team at 99designs has turned to Indiegogo in an effort to crowdfund relief aid, and they are pledging to match contributions up to $25,000.

2013-11-14-crowdfunding.jpg Lesson 2: Adopt Active Learning and Creativity Principles. As online crowdfunding becomes more all-pervasive, the ability to obtain, assimilate and apply the right knowledge effectively is a key skill to possess. The likelihood of success is not solely determined by qualifications we may have gained in the past, but is by and large tied to a capacity to learn and adapt. Understanding there is a whole range of learning styles and factors that help or hinder the learning process, the point here is to underscore the importance of learning to run a crowdfunding campaign, before actually launching a campaign. And with the availability of an inordinate number of online tools, webinars, trainings, tip sheets and in person offerings, there is no real barrier to learning, save perhaps some intrinsic factors -- such as an individual's motivation, perception of the rewards associated with this learning activity, or perceived time constraints.

In September, new rules went into effect allowing general solicitation and advertising in order to sell securities in a private placement under Section 506 of the Securities Act of 1933. Companies wishing to sell securities are now able to publicize that fact. Unfortunately, this does little to further true crowdfunding because only accredited investors (those with a net worth of at least one million dollars excluding a home, or a $200,000 annual income) can participate. The issuer must take reasonable steps to verify that all purchasers are accredited investors. Accredited investors have always had access to equity investing opportunities. As for full access to crowdfunding investment opportunities by the average person that was envisioned when the Jobs Act was passed, the SEC issued the first set of draft rules heres a PDF of the proposal in October. Following are the proposed regulations.

Luke explains his inspiration here "Our goal was simple, as part of a busy volunteer Fire Department, we wanted to equip our firefighters with tools that would help them do their jobs more efficiently, and safely." Following the success of the Snagger Tool within several departments, we want to raise awareness and distribute the tool more widely. While the Snagger Tool is a simple and cost-effective answer to many challenges, Fire Departments are under budget constraints that prevent them from making bulk purchases. The Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign will allow Snagger Tools to train and equip many firefighters, helping to make a dangerous job safer.

Can Crowdfunding Give the Private Space Race a Boost? Email Print The end of the space shuttle program ushered in a new era of space exploration carried out by private firms like SpaceX. But Elon Musk isn't the only one interested in exploring the cosmos, and some organizations have turned to crowd-funding sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo to make their space dreams a reality. Former NASA engineer and LiftPort Group founder Michael Laine, for example, took to Kickstarter last year in an effort to fund a sci-fi-inspired http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/11/07/islamic-finance-djibouti-idUSL5N0IR1FJ20131107 Lunar Elevator, or a rocketless transportation system to the moon. LiftPort's modest campaign set an $8,000 goal to build an indoor test rig and a robot that can climb 2 kilometers straight up an early step in the eventual construction of a Space Elevator. For a company that had only five years earlier shut down the project after running out of money, the hope for this campaign was to help rebuild the LiftPort community. Over the course of the 21-day funding campaign, the company earned more than $110,000 from 3,468 backers a response that "literally changed our lives," Laine said Saturday during an appearance at the Engadget Expand conference in New York.
