Nowadays it seems easy: SiGN UP, LIST YOUR FUND NEEDS and
YOU JUST STARTED YOUR BUSINESS!
I would like to share Chance Barnett’s (Contributor at Forbes magazine) definition of crowd funding which says that “Crowdfunding, at its essence, is exactly that — connecting “crowds” directly to those who need funds.” I found this definition very accurate, it just back up the saying “simple is genius” again..
From my point of view… i call crowdfunding awesome when it comes to real art and design.. For designers it can be difficult to start their own business because crazy and unusual ideas can be misjudged. That’s the main reason why crowd funding is perfect opportunity for designers. Designers who use crowd funding can not only have direct access to information and business opportunities but also opportunities to innovate and think and create ‘out of the box’. Also, searching for different investors and managing them is time consuming, while crowd funding gives an opportunity for starters to raise money in one investment. On the other hand, the advantage that crazy and unusual ideas can get funded more easily makes it disadvantage, because then stupid ideas can get funded also (sorry for aggression)…
So…. guys, maybe let’s sign up on Kickstarter? Or you know some better companies for that?
