Schuler warns entrepreneurs about the less obvious reasons to approach crowdfund equity with care. Equity Investment = Investor Investor Relations While crowdfunding wont require nearly the level of disclosure public companies face, to keep your investors informed and happy you will still need to do regular communications of some variety to keep them all in the loop. Whereas traditional early stage funding comes through channels you know and understand the bank, perhaps, or an angel investment group, or Uncle Ned with crowdfund equity you may dealing with legions of investors you dont know and have never met. Worst case, at the very times you need to stay heads down on execution you could be dealing with 50 investors calling you for an update every week.

Inside One Man's Attempt to Crowdfund Assassination

IgnitionDeck is the plugin behind the currently-running Star Citizencampaign, so it has been used to raise some serious cash. For crowdfunders that have already raised money via Kickstarter, a new feature to be added by the IgnitionDeck team a hopes to pick up where Kickstarter left off in terms of funding. A Kickstarter Import will be available for purchase soon that allows crowdfunders to perform a couple of mission-critical functions. If a project creator has concurrent IgnitionDeck and Kickstarter campaigns, the plugin will update Kickstarter information hourly so that the IgnitionDeck campaign will correctly reflect the total from both campaigns. If the project creator has already completed a Kickstarter campaign and wants to continue crowdfunding on IgnitionDeck, a one-time import from Kickstarter will aggregate information from that platform and correctly represent the totals in the new, endless campaign. Quickly transfer raw Kickstarter campaign data into your new IgnitionDeck project to continue where your Kickstarter campaign left off.

Danae Ringelmann: Crowdfunding Unleashes A Different Segment Of

Expert FAQ: What Should Investors Know about Equity Crowdfunding?

We wont really know if this is true until equity crowdfunding gets sufficient real-world testing. But my hopeful prediction is that equity crowdfunding will make investing less risky and less complex for most people, improve the investing experience for both Wall Street and Main Street and spur economic growth. Its easy to think of equity crowdfunding as a way for Joe or Jane Investor to get in on the next big tech startup. But we believe it could also unleash a different segment of our economy: the long tail of local small businesses and franchises that are too small for pro investors to spend time on. We see indications of this on Indiegogo already. The amount of money pledged to small business campaigns on our perks-based platform has risen by more than 200% over the past year, and has helped restaurants, boutiques, massage parlors, theaters, gyms, bookstores, hobby businesses, and more. (Campaignersare charged a 4% fee of the total amount raised if the target is met, and 9% of the total amount if the target is not met. <br>visit http://blogs.wsj.com/accelerators/2013/11/26/danae-ringelmann-crowdfunding-unleashes-a-different-segment-of-the-economy/

Crowdcube: Taking the equity crowdfunding model and going global

I suspect that additional funding rounds will provide some exit opportunities for firms that do another round of funding. Another challenge is How will investors be protected? The companies wont be filing the standard financial statements with the SEC. What rights will shareholders have to protect themselves from many of the shenanigans that have occurred in the stocks of small companies? <br>visit http://www.nerdwallet.com/blog/investing/2013/equity-crowdfunding-obstacles/

Love Powerball? Try Crowdfunding

But if you gave me a hundred bucks, I'd put it in a new company before I'd spend it on MegaMillions. Risk? We'll give you risk Although equity crowdfunding isnt a reality yet, Ill bet the odds of at least breaking even on your crowdfunding investment are going to at least match those of winning Powerball. Your odds of buying a winning lottery ticket are approximately seven percent. That includes small prizes, where you essentially break even, such as winning a dollar or a free ticket. The odds of winning a jackpot in one of the big PowerBall or MegaMillions drawings are about one in 175 million. <br>visit http://www.statesman.com/feed/business/personal-finance/love-powerball-try-crowdfunding/fWZDz/

Without leveraging the model provided by joint accounts, Spains equity platforms are left subject to much more prohibitive financial regulations that place them under the jurisdiction of the Bank of Spain or the CMNV, Spains financial regulatory authority. There is currently no regulatory regime that is specifically adapted to Crowdfunding in Spain. However, operating the Equity Model is subject to regulation designed for other activities As a matter of practice, Equity Model platforms are structured so as not to be regulated by the CNMV or the Bank of Spain. However, as a matter of law, it appears that many such platforms could nonetheless be conducting activities that fall within the scope of the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive or, when implemented, the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive. Equity Crowdfunding in the UK Equity crowdfunding web sites like Crowdcube currently operate under exemptions put in place by the UKs Financial Conduct Authority, or FCA. (Formerly the Financial Services Authority, or FSA) Its an iterative approach to crowdfunding that places the focus on sophisticated investors for now. <br>visit http://www.crowdfundinsider.com/2013/06/17310-equity-crowdfunding-in-europe-where-it-stands/

Like all good ideas, Crowdcube has been copied, which is great as it offers people choice and helps build a credible marketplace. Were not ones to rest on our laurels and we are determined to hammer home our dominant position. (2) How has progress been in getting companies and investors signed up? We recently funded our 50th business of this year, whilst last week we also welcomed our 50,000th registered investor to the Crowdcube http://www.reddit.com/ family. Since launching in 2011, we have raised 16 million for UK businesses, which already makes Crowdcube one of the biggest and most successful angel networks in Europe.So far in 2013 we have raised 11.7 million, seven times our nearest rival, which represents an increase of more than 500 per centwhen compared to 2012, which is fantastic. We now routinely process in excess of 1,000 investments per month, and repeat investors regularly represent 60 per centof all investments each month, which is really encouraging as it demonstrates a real appetite for Crowdcube investors to back multiple businesses listed on Crowdcube and shows a level of sophistication, with investors wisely building portfolios to spread risk. <br>visit http://www.growthbusiness.co.uk/growing-a-business/business-finance/2440137/crowdcube-taking-the-equity-crowdfunding-model-and-going-global.thtml
