If Crowdfunding is the New Day Trading, Look Out

Paul Volcker famously said the only financial innovation to improve society in recent memory was the ATM. Not everyone agrees. In an essay earlier this week on the evolution of money and finance, GigaOM founder and venture capitalist Om Malik argued that crowdfunding will be the new day trading, the latest financial innovation to “cut costs and [drive] wider participation in a previously closed and clubby market.” Advocates of crowdfunding had better hope not. To be clear, Malik isn’t talking about Kickstarter where funders make a donation that acts like a pre-order. He’s talking about the…

S.Korea crowdfunding system to help financing venture companies

S.Korea crowdfunding system to help financing venture companies

SEOUL, Sept. 26 (Xinhua) — South Korea planned to launch a crowdfunding system as early as next year to help venture companies finance their seed money from a wide pool of small investors with fewer restrictions, the country’s financial regulator said Thursday. Crowdfunding, which began to gain attention after the United States legalized the system in April 2012 via the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act, refers to the financing of a company by selling a small amount of equities to a wide pool of investors in cyberspace. “Entrepreneurs with creative ideas can post their business…

Crowd Funding College: Gradsave Hopes To Help ‘Paralyzed’ Parents With Savings

Crowd Funding College: Gradsave Hopes To Help ‘Paralyzed’ Parents With Savings

Marcos Cordero became an entrepreneur in 2012–right around the time he became an uncle. He wanted to give a meaningful baptism gift but found nothing that could actually make an impact on his niece’s life. “In thinking through what could be considered ‘meaningful,’” Cordero says, “I couldn’t get away from the idea of education. Thus the idea of Gradsave came to be.” Miami-based Gradsave is, simply put, a crowdfunding platform for college savings—meant to simplify the process for new parents and help friends and family give gifts with impact. That the price of college is ever-increasing…

Law Opens Financing of Start-Ups to Crowds

Law Opens Financing of Start-Ups to Crowds

Entrepreneurs looking to the crowd to finance their big ideas just got a little extra help from the government. On Monday, federal legislation goes into effect to allow “emerging growth” companies — essentially, small start-ups — to ask for equity investments publicly, such as through social media sites or elsewhere on the Internet, without having to register the shares for public trading. Business owners will now be able to raise up to $1 million a year this way. The legislation is part of the 2012 “Jumpstart Our Business Start-ups Act,” or JOBS Act, meant to encourage…

Crowdfunding University of California College Scholarships

Here’s a novel idea–turn to crowdfunding to bankroll college scholarships. The University of California has launched a six-week crowdfunding campaign, Promise for Education, to raise money for student scholarships.

Donations can then be made to see the promises fulfilled and all proceeds will go to University of California students with financial needs, according to university officials. Promise for Education is the…

PayPal updates its policies to play nice with crowdfunding

PayPal updates its policies to play nice with crowdfunding

The eBay-owned company has been very successful when it comes to digital transactions, but for some reason the service has problems when there’s a crowdfunding element involved. For example, last month wearable tech company GlassUp raised an impressive $100,000 on IndieGoGo for its smart glasses device, but then had trouble getting PayPal to release its funds once the campaign ended. In a recent blog post, PayPal said it’s “in the midst of overhauling our policies” to make sure situations involving crowdsourced funding work smoothly from now on. As for what those policy changes are, PayPal didn’t…

Kickstarter eyes Down Under, but is it just playing catch-up?

Kickstarter eyes Down Under, but is it just playing catch-up?

Kickstarter, fresh off its launch in Canada, is promising to come to New Zealand and Australia “soon.” Experts say it’s natural for the crowdfunding platform to go global, especially since rivals are already there. Kickstarter is growing more international, almost by the day.

New Zealand. Soon.” The promise to Australia and New Zealand comes amid a larger push to go international for the site, which…
