Zapitano – war das Crowdfunding falsch?

Zapitano – war das Crowdfunding falsch?

CrowdFundBeat.de Eric Schreyer, 14.03.2014 – Zapitano und SporTrade stellten kurz nach dem Ende ihres Crowdfunding Insolvenzantrag. Bei diesen Startups hat Companisto keine glückliche Hand gehabt. Man muss sogar fragen, ob Zapitano schon während der Crowdfunding-Kampagne, die von Juli bis Oktober 2013 lief,  insolvenzreif war. Vor allem: Wer hat davon gewusst und trotzdem geschwiegen? Sachverhalte, die auf Companisto als Tatsachen präsentiert wurden, wie eine Kapitalzuführung in Millionenhöhe und die Anmeldung der “Search Engine Advertisement” zum Patent sind weder plausibel noch nachvollziehbar. Die Schlüsselpersonen schweigen. Für ein Unternehmen mit existenzbedrohenden Geldsorgen ist das sicher die falsche Strategie. Parabanking…

Für Crowdfunding qualifiziert: finally you

CrowdFundBeat.de Eric Schreyer, 17.02.2014 – werk.statt.möbel. Selber gewerkt statt industriell produziert. Personalisiert statt anonymisiert. Seinem Möbel die eigene persönliche Note geben. In der Tischlerei mit allen Sinnen spüren und erfahren, wie erfüllend handwerken sein kann. “Die finally you Werkstatt steht für den Entwurf und die Produktion von Design Holz-Möbeln, wobei es am Ende der Kunde selbst ist, der seinem Tisch, Bank, Bett, den letzten Schliff verleiht. Das Erlebnis für den Kunden besteht darin, sein Einzelstück nicht nur geliefert und aufgestellt zu bekommen, sondern den finalen Schritt selber machen zu können”, erläutert Gründerin Isabel Philipp. Diese gute Idee…

Radio CrowdFund with Paul Schomer

Radio CrowdFund with Paul Schomer

Paul Schomer. I was born and raised in the Washington, DC, metro area and I’ve been a rock music junkie and musician for much of my rather lengthy life. I wrote a few music stories for Reuters in the early 1990s, produced a independent new music television show in DC in the mid-1990s and then did a brief spell as a segment producer for VH-1. I hosted a weekly songwriters showcase in DC during the late 1990s. https://soundcloud.com/thesuburbs/turn-the-radio-on From 2000 to the end of 2004 (drum roll, please) I worked at National Public Radio as a…

Pebble’s Eric Migicovsky

By Adriana Lee October 21, 2013, When CEO and founder Eric Migicovsky put his humble-yet-stylish Pebble smartwatch on Kickstarter last year, he was a little known player in the tech scene.

It also set off a buzzworthy race that recently drew competitors such as Samsung and Adidas.Pebble’s success…

The JOBS Act Isn’t All ‘Crowdfunding’

The JOBS Act Isn’t All ‘Crowdfunding’

By Chris Brummer & Daniel Gorfine On September 23, the SEC officially implemented Title II of the JOBS Act by lifting a decades-old ban on the mass marketing of private securities offerings – meaning those securities not formally registered with the SEC.  This has triggered enormous excitement in startup and small business communities as entrepreneurs consider ways to raise funds through newly available capital-raising tools.  But even with the increased media coverage and interest, there is still a good deal of confusion about what portion of the law went ‘live,’ and how this portion relates to…

Crowdfunding Site Makes it Easier For Startups to Stand Out

Crowdfunding Site Makes it Easier For Startups to Stand Out

BY MICHELLE GOODMAN   Ryan Feit and James Han wanted their crowdfunding site to be more than a listing service for startups in search of cash. So when the former investors launched New York City-based SeedInvest in February, they handpicked the companies they wanted to include. The idea was to make it easier for startups to stand out from the crowd and give accredited investors the highest caliber of companies from which to choose. So far more than 400 startups have applied to SeedInvest, and more than 600 accredited investors have signed on. “Right now about 1.5 percent of the companies that apply…
