CrowdFundBeat.de Eric Schreyer, 04.07.2014 – Geld teilen, Abfallprodukte teilen, Handelsgewinne teilen. Drei ganz unterschiedliche Facetten der ShareEconomy im Mikrokosmos eines “grün” geplanten Cafés in der Kölner Innenstadt: NaturecUP heißt das ambitionierte Projekt, das jeder über Startnext.de nach Herzenslust fördern kann. Die Schreibweise deutet bereits auf das Ziel der Initiatoren hin: Umweltfreundlichkeit und Ökologie sollen nicht bloß gepredigt, sondern durch die Ausstattung des Cafés mit Möbeln, Lampen, Deko und Geschirr aus Upcycling-Materialien ganz praktisch in die Tat umgesetzt werden. Der noch recht neue Begriff des Upcycling beschreibt eine interessante Form der in sich geschlossenen Kreislaufwirtschaft, die eine…

App Makers Crowdfund to Avoid Blindside Hit of FDA Rules

It sounded like a good idea at the time: A smartphone application that tapped into a growing consumer desire to self-diagnose health ailments at home. Biosense Technologies Private Ltd. made a splash in February when it unveiled a kit that lets people use their phone cameras to read subtle color differences on test strips designed to show unhealthy levels of proteins and other substances in their urine. What the creators didn’t anticipate was the need for U.S. government approval. Now Biosense is adjusting to a new reality. After receiving a letter from the Food and Drug…

Crowdfunding Takes On Hunger, Health And Human Rights

Crowdfunding Takes On Hunger, Health And Human Rights

Kickstarter meets Kiva meets TOMS: That’s the idea behind a soon-to-be launched social enterprise and crowdfunding web site by the name of Reciprocity & Co. The basic concept is this: Founded by Gainsville, Fla.-based Sam McPherson, the site promotes projects aimed at addressing major areas of need, like health or human rights abuses. But the way it happens is consumers buy an organic cotton tote bag or backpack for $25, and $5 from those revenues goes to help an organization involved with one of those projects. Example: the Alaska Sudan Medical Project, which is trying to build a school in…
