One of my favourite recording artists is Charlene Kaye – I love her sound and her music. Last year she began a project to record a new album. She needed $20,000 to do it, and as an Indie artist she did it the Indie way. She used crowdfunding. She raised $32,000 and created her new album!
Thursday, April 5th, Obama is set to sign the Jobs Bill which includes “crowdfunding“. This has been around for quite a while but it’s now going more mainstream on the Internet. There are multiple companies doing it and I’m sure there will be more who will join them.
The idea is quite simple, crowdfunding allows anyone to contribute / invest. Crowdfunding …”helps ordinary Americans bypass big banks, investment brokerages and large investors…” “Crowdfunding is a way of financing a business venture without a financial intermediary or a stock exchange.”
Take a look at the websites above and you’ll see. In my humble opinion, it’s going to be a major bonus for entrepreneurs across the country!
