5 Reasons Why You Should Crowdfund Your Tech Startup

By Solomon Nabatiyan. Most startup companies usually face a lot of glitches especially in the initial phase of setting up a business. As a startup tech company, you may have a world-changing product and are ready for business to bring it to the world.  But if you cannot manage to obtain the funding you need to get up and running, the product is as good as nothing. As an entrepreneur, it is also equally important for you to make people see what makes your idea so special. If you cannot do so, the greatest of ideas and…

Crowd Funding Kickstarts the Long Dark Production Cycle

Crowd Funding Kickstarts the Long Dark Production Cycle

Digital screenshots acted as teaser to the game, and then YouTube video helped share actual game play footage among a dedicated and growing fan base.  Over the weekend, a crowd sourced fundraising project in support of The Long Dark reached its $200,000 goal, with three days left in its campaign! Created by B.C.-based video game developer Hinterland Games, The Long Dark is survival simulation video game, set in the northern wilderness in the aftermath of a global disaster. It presents a post-digital world in which technology has little or no value, while knowledge itself can be life saving. Moving from organic, woodcut-style…

Equity Crowdfunding: 5 Things to Know About the Future of Raising Money

Here’s one: The perk-based crowdfunding you already know and love isn’t going anywhere  Crowdfunding sites can now solicit select wealthy individuals to invest in their movies and pursue profits rather than trinkets and perks. Though this is a major development, the evolution of film financing is far from over. Title II of the JOBS Act went into effect late last month, allowing open solicitation of monies, but it will be several more months before the Securities and Exchange Commission approves regulations for Title III of the bill. This provision, passed last year, allows anybody — not just accredited…

PENN JILLETTE EMBRACES CROWDFUNDING

PENN JILLETTE EMBRACES CROWDFUNDING

Director’s Cut, Jillette’s first stab at the horror genre, is using FundAnything.com to raise the necessary resources. The magician, who wrote the screenplay, initially tried to pitch the film’s concept to different studios. He was told he wasn’t right to play the movie’s villain and that other changes had to be made. So he went the indie route. The six-foot-six libertarian is following in the smaller footsteps of Adam Carolla, Spike Lee and Zach Braff, but none of those artists have incorporated crowdfunding directly into the finished product. Put simply, crowdfunding is impacting the movie in ways he…

New York City Opera in Tough Straits after a Try at Crowdfunding

With a reputation for feistiness and innovation, the 70-year-old New York City Opera said this week that it needs to explore its options in light of the fact that it has failed to meet its stated goal to raise $7 million by Monday.
