Welcome,
Today is 12/14/2012 and you are watching the broadcast of CFNewsTV, “CrowdFunding Daily News TV”

"We are CrowdFunding Guys / We are CrowdFunding Guys"

Our Passion is CrowdFunding, in all it’s forms and flavors!.

********************************************************************************************************************************************************
Before we begin our normal Broadcast, we would like to take a moment and offer our thoughts and prayers for those Families, Children and Teachers/Staff involved in the Newtown, Connecticut - Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings today. 
********************************************************************************************************************************************************

This video show is produced to provide you with most relevant and daily CrowdFunding news, campaign and information, this is to save time.Quality. Value. Convenience you expect with 30 minutes daily dose of CrowdFunding knowledge.



We will Focus on the top 5 crowdfunding News items for the Day:

1) An Investment-Based Crowdfunding Platform for Small Businesses
http://smallbusiness.foxbusiness.com/entrepreneurs/2012/12/14/investment-based-crowdfunding-platform-for-small-businesses/

Who: Cofounders Charlie Tribbett and Larry Baker, both 28, @Bolstr

What: An investment-based crowdfunding platform for small businesses
Where: New York City
How: Tribbett and Baker met while interning at JPMorgan. The two men went on to work in finance, and found themselves asking 'What about small business?' “The system is just broken,” Tribbett said. “I was standing on the trading floor when huge companies couldn’t access capital. If they couldn’t, then how are the Main Street guys faring?” The two set out to create access to capital for businesses who need investments under $100,000. Bolstr works by leveraging the concept of garnering support from the community and word-of-mouth crowdsourcing to fund startups. The company’s model was established before President Obama signed the JOBS Act and the idea of crowdfunding started to gain traction.



2) Crowdfunding inches forward with FINRA set to accept portal applications
http://www.bizjournals.com/stlouis/blog/BizNext/2012/12/crowdfunding-inches-forward-with-finra.html

A FINRA spokesperson said the FINRA Board of Governors just voted to authorize the organization to create a interim form for crowdfunding portals and it's unclear how long it will take for them to actually make the form available or start accepting applications.

The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), the largest independent regulator for all securities firms doing business in the United States,last week decided to "issue an interim form to seek essential information from prospective funding portals intending to apply for membership with FINRA pursuant to the JOBS Act."

This is one of the first steps required for crowdfunding to become a reality as envisioned under the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act, signed into law by President Barack Obama on April 5. Companies that want to act as the middleman in the crowfunding process (Klein's company will be one of them), will have to register with FINRA and will be required to follow all of the rules the Securities and Exchange Commission comes up with. The most optimistic predictions have the changes under the JOBS Act taking effect sometime by the summer of 2013.



From an International Perspective:

3) Crowdfunding Efficient Lighting Options for the Developing World
http://sustainablog.org/2012/12/crowdfunding-efficient-lighting-options-for-the-developing-world/

Clean, reliable lighting is essential for development… and many parts of the world don’t have the basic infrastructure necessary to provide the kind of lighting we take for granted. Not any more – social entrepreneurs around the world have recognized the need for lighting in the world’s poorest regions, and responded with all sorts of ideas that don’t require an electric grid. This week, I came across two more with active crowdfunding campaigns… and, clearly, these concepts resonate with people, as neither has to worry about not meeting their funding goal.
Efficient Lighting Concept #1: The GravityLight with a complete video description
Efficient Lighting Concept #2: the WakaWaka Power Station: WakaWaka‘s solar LED light was a big hit on Kickstarter; now the company is improving on its initial concept with a solar powered light and battery charger



 ...and continuing on the Green theme, we trun to a Domestic CrowdFunding Solar Project.

4) Solar Crowdfunding in California: Part 1, RE-volv
http://theenergycollective.com/rosana-francescato/157011/solar-crowdfunding-california-part-1-re-volv

This three-part series profiles some other startups that are paving the way to spread solar to all.....There's a huge opportunity here to mobilize people who care about renewable energy to take meaningful action that will help deliver renewables to more and more communities." RE-volv’s, A revolving fund that grows quickly, mission is to empower people and communities to invest collectively in renewable energy. RE-volv is currently crowdfunding for the final $10,000 needed to pay for their first solar project, thus launching the revolving fund. The campaign, which will run through January 20th, is being hosted on Indiegogo and can be accessed at www.solarseedfund.org. If you donate $25 now, over the 20-year lease period that turns into $100 that you’ve invested in solar.” RE-volv hopes to put solar on community centers that have a reach, in order to educate as many people as possible in the area about solar. In addition to nonprofits, Karelas is looking at coops that own their own space and serve as a community center -- and even condo complexes.

The potential shows that the Private sector can determine viability and provide for the re-nuable enegry Industry to become self sustainable, therefore not rely on politically supported programs, since we in the USA have had several high profile Government funded failures in this area. Power, in a literal sense, to the true Entrepreneur!.

From across the Pond, at Europe's Largest Tech Conference, LeWeb, help in Paris every December.



5) With Equity Crowdfunding, You Can Play Venture Capitalist
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/pamela-poole/with-equity-crowdfunding-capitalist_b_2292800.html

From idealistic college students whose apps won start-up competitions a month earlier, to some of the world's most powerful investors, to founders and executives of household names like Google, WordPress, and Instagram .......you get your finger on the pulse of the tech scene and see where it's going before anybody on the outside even has an inkling.

Equity CrowdFunding, as allowed in Europe and soon to be available in the USA, is not only for tech or Web-based companies! This change could be huge for small businesses of every stripe, since it's so hard to get something going without a chunk of cash up front, and it's really hard to find that chunk of cash from the traditional institutions.

Europe's, FundedByMe does have an interesting fail-safe mechanism built in to their funding process that is designed to protect both the investors and the entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs who want to raise funds have to go through a "pre-round" phase to get feedback from the crowd and see what kind of interest they can generate in their project. If they're not ready for prime time, they find out soon enough. This pre-Stage is a great validation step to then ensure the Business idea is real and something every effort needs to do, as they "refine" and tune their efforts.....more on this process in the future & @ CFP.



Crowdfunding Campaigns of the Day:

Misfit Shine: an elegant, wireless activity tracker

11/27/12

12/14/12



Middlewest: A new food magazine from Chicago Modern Recipe cards for home cooks


Middlewest: A new food magazine from Chicago Modern Recipe cards for home cooks
Issuer: Middlewest Portal: Kickstarter Pitch: Middlewest is a food magazine in the form of modern recipe cards. URL: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/557106738/middlewest-a-new-food-magazine-from-chicago Attempting to raise: $9,000 Funded amount: $16,908 Days left: 26 Campaign Video: Very good story and scripts. Reward QTY and Quality: 12 $1 - $750 Review: Middlewest is a semiannual food and recipe magazine. But it doesn't look quite like other magazines. The pages are unbound, and it's printed on thick cardstock; each page acts as its own recipe card. So you can think of Middlewest as a cooking magazine, or you can think of it as a set of recipe cards. Either way, the look and feel of Middlewest is progressive, new and, in our opinion, gorgeous.



VARI-COLORED SONGS: A Tribute to Langston Hughes Album - Haiti and New Orleans


VARI-COLORED SONGS: A Tribute to Langston Hughes Album - Haiti and New Orleans
Issuer: Leyla McCalla Portal: Kickstarter Pitch: Vari-Colored Songs is an album of songs written to Langston Hughes' poetry, Haitian folk songs and original compositions. URL: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1315256600/vari-colored-son... Attempting to raise: $5,000 Funded amount: $18,813 Days left: 20 Campaign Video: Very natural , nice music and quick ask. Reward QTY and Quality: 10 - $1.00 and $1000 (private concert in you house?) Review: Thanks to you all, in just one week I have met my kickstarter goal! These funds ensure that all of the base production costs of this album will be covered! What a relief! But also a great honor to be able to hire and work with all of the amazing people involved in making this album!!! As I look further into how to get the music out to the world, I realize that promotional costs are potentially exponential. Seems there are two routes to getting your music out there beyond your immediate community (social networks, friends and family). One route is to hire a publicist, which costs at minimum about $2500 a month (eeeeeeeeek!). The second route is a bit more ninja style: order an extra however many copies of your album to give to radio stations and other media outlets so that people that have never heard of you, know about you.



The Fitzroy


The Fitzroy
Issuer: Andrew Harmer Portal: Kickstarter Pitch: The Fitzroy – A live action, black comedy feature film set in an alternative post-apocalyptic 1950s on a submarine hotel. URL: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1538713376/the-fitzroy Attempting to raise: $97,176.00 (£60,000)  Funded amount: $76,660 (£47,331) Days left: i Campaign Video: Very good , professional - Lots of asks - Camera people have the advantage. Reward QTY and Quality: N/A Review: The Fitzroy is an independent, live action, feature film; a black comedy set in a post-apocalyptic 1950’s Margate. The world is covered in a poisonous gas and the Fitzroy Hotel (a beached submarine) is the last place for a traditional holiday. The hotel is sent into chaos when one of the guests murders the hotel’s owner. It is left to Bernard, The Fitzroy’s hapless bellboy, to keep the hotel from falling apart as he struggles to hide the murders from the other guests and the ever-suspicious authorities.



CrowdFunding Conference Announcements & Educational Events:

So you want to get crowdfunded? Here’s how to tell a good story through video
http://medcitynews.com/2012/12/so-you-want-to-get-crowdfunded-heres-how-to-tell-a-good-story-through-video/#ixzz2F3W8eFXD

Again, in an effort to help the Innovator understand how important some basic steps in building your CrowdFunding campaign are, and the fundamental value of CrowdFunding Planning, we see here from MedCityNews.com the ....... Twitter chat among crowdfunders last week made it clear that that a well-suited crowdfunding project must have a few critical elements: Emotional appeal, a trustworthy founder and a compelling story.
Character development -they want to know who’s getting their money, and they want to trust that those people will deal with it responsibly.
Physical description - to fund a consumer product, a video is the perfect opportunity to show people why they want to buy it...What features will they look at? What makes it different from what’s next to it on the shelf?
Explain future implications - telling the potential funder how his or her money is going to be used in furthering that project.
Action & movement - building momentum through action and movement to support and fund your idea
Context — the all important ’why’ - ...Consider who’s going to be watching the video and why they might be compelled to contribute, being transparent about your motives is paramount!



CrowdFunding Quote of the Day:

 
The safest way to try to get what you want is to try to deserve what you want. 
It's such a simple idea. It's the golden rule. You want to deliver to the world 
what you would buy if you were on the other end.




Major Development in the CrowdFunding Industry:

The "Twinkie Surge"


In honor of the Hostess Bakery business re-structuring CrowdFunding effort, Keep calling the WhiteHouse, the Senate & Congressonal representatives to Motivate the SEC to get the rules written and released!

CrowdFunding Planning Daily News TV - 12/13/2012 - A 30 Minute Daily Dose of CrowdFunding Knowledge

Excerpt:
Hi, my name is David Khorram
And My name is Steve Gutierrez

Welcome,
Today is Thursday , DEC 13, 2012 & this is the Broadcast of CFDNews TV

"We are CrowdFunding Guys"

Our Passion is CrowdFunding, in all it’s forms and flavors!

This video show is produced to provide you with most relevant and daily CrowdFunding news, campaign and information, this is to save time.Quality. Value. Convenience you expect with 30 minutes daily dose of CrowdFunding knowledge



We will Focus on the top 5 crowdfunding News items for the Day:



1) Stalled Crowdfunding Rules Leave Business Plans on Ice
http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887324339204578173731988591450.html

   The Wall Street journal addresses the Issue we @CFDN & CFP called attention to late last week,  when we requested our listeners to launch the “Twinkie Surge” ( regarding the Hostess Company CrowdFunding efforts to re-fund ) and notify the White House, Congress and the US Sentate to pressure the SEC to get the JOBS ACT rules and regulations written and released so the HR3606 can be implemented and the small StartUP business can get their idea developed and the economy can start supporting to natural Job growth. The WSJ highlights, Corvallis-based Mega Tech of Orgeon and its CEOSchroder who is targeting to add 15 new employees to help meet demand. What is holding him back? Right now, it is unclear what will be possible under the law and what 
kind of information he would be required to provide investors under the still-to-be drafted rules. 

Another business awaiting regulators' decisions is Pizza Lounge, a fledgling restaurant chain, whose co-owner Gil Aouizerat wants to raise up to $250,000 in equity sales through a crowdfunding site to open a fourth location, in San Clemente, Calif. Mr. Aouizerat believes raising funds on an equity crowdfunding website would "turbocharge our growth." He says he is frustrated by the slow pace of the rule-making process.

Let’s remind our Legislators, that we need JOBS and CrwodFunding will help in that process. (241)



2) FORBES : Crowdfunding Predictions for 2013
http://www.forbes.com/sites/ryancaldbeck/2012/12/11/crowdfunding-predictions-for-2013/

  2012 was quite a year for the crowdfunding industry. In April, President Obama signed the JOBS Act into law, which will open up equity-based crowdfunding for unaccredited investors. In May, the Pebble E-Paper Watch set a crowdfunding record and gained national media headlines, raising over $10 million on donation-based crowdfunding site Kickstarter. Research firm Massolution estimates the crowdfunding industry (equity + donation + lending +reward crowdfunding) will grow from $1.5 billion in 2011 to $2.8 billion in 2012.

So what will 2013 Bring:
  1. The implementation of the JOBS Act will not lead to an explosion in crowdfunding in 2013.Why will it be smaller? a) timing – rule implementation will take longer than everyone expects; b) adjustment period- it will take time for all participants (companies, investors, lawyers, platforms, etc) to understand and adapt to the rules in an efficient way; c) fewer (good) companies will care – raising capital for most companies is a challenge

  2. Donation based crowdfunding sites will differentiate or die.Kickstarter has jumped out to a commanding lead among donation based crowdfunding portals, other donation sites will need to differentiate and own a particular niche to stay relevant, 

  3. Angel Groups Will Embrace Equity Crowdfunding. The facts are simple. Online platforms, includingCircleUp, provide an improved company and investor experience. Angel groups will remain strong, as the best groups provide education, support and tools for members that go beyond just deal flow, but I expect more groups to seek out partnerships with top platforms. Crowdfunding will again be a dominant topic at this April’s Angel Capital Association’s meeting in San Francisco, as group manager and the Angels themselves find the best way to capitalize on the growing movement.
CONSOLIDATION : Over time during 2013 and beyond there to be a flight to quality among crowdfunding portals which will kick-off a cycle that allows only the highest quality crowdfunding sites to thrive. Just as public market investors do not maintain 10 brokerage accounts, crowdfunding investors will not use 10 portals. (348).



3) 4 Tips for a Successful Crowdfunding Campaign from Forbes
http://www.forbes.com/sites/geristengel/2012/12/12/4-tips-for-a-successful-crowdfunding-campaign/

  If you want to make your company a major player, you cannot just rely on your own resources, you’ll need outside funding. The good news is that there’s an alternative to loans, and angel and venture capital financing. Crowdfunding allows you to use the power of social media and the internet to to fund your projects via websites, such as Kickstarter and Rockethub, which coordinate the transaction. Fortunately, guides have begun to map the best routes to success. Here are four ways to ensure your crowdfunding campaign is a success:

Prime the pump: The best way to show that others already trust you is by showing that others are already supporting your crowdfunding campaign. line up commitments from friends and family so on day one you look successful.

Build your network before you need it: In order to be successful in online 
fundraising, you need to have social media juice — lots of Facebook fans, Twitter followers, LinkedIn connections and email subscribers so your message can go viral

Tell an engaging story: “The crowd” funds when they feel a direct connection to a great idea, a game changer, a superior management team or a personal value like giving back.

Offer something tangible: “Rewards can be a powerful incentive that convert people to fund and support your project.



4) 5 Ways to Use Google Analytics to Track Social Media ROI
http://www.business2community.com/digital-education/5-ways-to-use-google-analytics-to-track-social-media-roi-0355153

  Google Analytics will track the traffic that is coming onto your website from each different social site, giving you an overview of your social media marketing campaign in one convenient place.

  1. Use the conversions report to prove ROI from social media. What is a conversions report? From Google Analytics website: “The Conversions report shows conversion rates and the monetary value of conversions that occurred due to visits from social networks.” Make sure to have conversion goals setup, whether you are tracking a lead, sale, or other microconversion, such as a click or download.

  2. Are people sharing your content? Knowing what they are sharing can give you valuable clues as to what really engages your market, and therefore what do give them more of. Configure Google Analytics for “sharing reports.”

  3. As social media sites continue to emerge, it’s important to know which ones to spend your time on. If you are sharing your content across dozens of social sites, which are the ones that are bringing you the most traffic? To find out, use what Google calls, “social sources.”

  4. Does your website need to be optimized for mobile use? Find out how much of your traffic is referring to your website from a mobile, web connected device such as a phone or a tablet.

She was his biology tutor and we are still not sure if grandpa really needed the help or not. They graduated together in 1936 and started their family shortly thereafter. Then around 1944 they bought an existing pharmacy on the corner of 6th & Washington Avenues in Newport, Kentucky, during an era when The Syndicate ran the city. (I have many stories about them during this time but we'll save that for another day.)

CrowdFunding Quote of the Day:



Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. 
When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.
 




Major Development in the CrowdFunding Industry:

Ontario Minister Joins Crowd in Push for Crowdfunding Exemption
http://www.jdsupra.com/legalnews/ontario-minister-joins-crowd-in-push-for-94368/

  At the recent Technicity conference in Toronto, Brad Duguid, Ontario’s Minister of Economic Development and Innovation, expressed support for introducing equity crowdfunding in Ontario. Recognizing the need to keep innovators on the north side of the border, Minister Duguid explained that “it’s really important that Ontario keep pace if not even try to get out in front [of the US] if we can do that in a way that ensures protection for consumers and investors.”

Canadian proponents of crowdfunding have encouraged our regulators to adopt crowdfunding measures introduced in the U.S. in the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (the JOBS Act). The JOBS Act was ratified in April 2012. After some delay, the crowdfunding provisions of the JOBS Act are currently expected to come into force some time in mid-2013.

Side Note: Again .Twinkie Surge call White house, Congress & Sentate to Get SEC rules

Excerpt:
Hi, my name is David Khorram
And My name is Steve Gutierrez


Welcome,

Today is 12/4/2012 and you are watching the broadcast of CF News TV, “CrowdFunding Daily News TV”


"We are CrowdFunding Guys"

Our Passion is CrowdFunding, in all it’s forms and flavors!.

This video show is produced to provide you with most relevant and daily CrowdFunding news, campaign and information, this is to save time.Quality. Value. Convenience you expect with 30 minutes daily dose of CrowdFunding knowledge


We will Focus on the top 5 crowdfunding News items for the Day:

1) Students turn to Crowd-Funding for Facebook privacy case, raise €20,000
http://www.zdnet.com/students-turn-to-crowd-funding-for-facebook-privacy-court-case-raise-20000-7000008551/

The Austrian student group Europe-v-Facebook wants to go to court to force Facebook to do more to protect the data privacy of its users. To finance the legal battle, the group is turning to crowdfunding.

Europe-v-Facebook is now preparing for court, and estimates that the cost of the case might range between €100,000 and €300,000.
With no access to legal aid, the group is hoping to finance its battle using contributions from supporters online.
The group has set up a crowd-funding appeal at Crowd4Privacy, where users can choose to donate any amount they see fit. "People are donating an average of €20...... @ 5,000 supporters, they can bring the most important issues to court......
...@ 15,000 supporters, they can use everything we have.
A verdict would be a signal for the online industry, similar to the antitrust proceedings against Microsoft,"
(159)


2) Everyone chip in, please: Crowdfunding Sandy
http://www.scpr.org/news/2012/12/10/35189/everyone-chip-in-please-crowdfunding-sandy/

The generosity of Big-hearted Americans who always rush to give money after a disaster is using new methods? …...and Just how much and how fast funding is often determined by technology.
Hurricane Sandy has shown crowdfunding websites are a simple tool for quick-response giving. Anyone can go on these sites and ask for money to rebuild or to help their neighbors rebuild. Friends, family and strangers chip in.
You can sign up and establish a Donation based campaign, share it with your contacts/friends, etc. on Facebook, Twitter, email, and begin accepting credit or debit card donations online.
This is what 32-year-old writer Jenny Adams did. It was simple: she added a gripping picture of a flooded street to her page, and asked for money that she could give out to her neighbors affected by Sandy in the Alphabet City neighborhood of Manhattan.
Adams bought bundles of jackets, blankets and food at Kmart and Target, and offered them to neighbors in need.
She also handed out a lot of money. She gave $500 to a friend who owns a damaged bar. A $200 gift card went to the checkout lady at Kmart for her sister in N.J. And Adams recently offered a $1,000 check to the damaged Lower East Side Girls Club.
The Red Cross is embracing crowdfunding with Sandy-like campaigns of its own on two different websites, IndieGoGo and CrowdRise. Each site is pulling in more than $1 million, which is a pittance compared to the $170 million in total donations to the charitybut, the organization says it will have more than half of it left for long-term Sandy rebuilding.

3) How To Make A Kickass Kickstarter Video
http://www.fastcompany.com/3003858/how-make-kickass-kickstarter-video

KickStarter, Indiegogo and numerous other Donation & Pre-Order based CrowdFunding sites are great places to fund your independent project and in all cases, as compelling, entertaining and informative video “Sales Pitch” in a key part of the cCampaign and its funding success.
Nathaniel Hansen is an independent filmmaker from Boston who has been a part of dozens of successful campaigns, has a forthcoming book about crowdfunding on the way and shares a number of Valuable Video characteristics for the Campaign video:
Be Genuine - campaigns are often successful due to the emotional connection potential backers have with the project creators. You could have a great project, but if you come off as incompetent, arrogant, or disingenuous, backers are going to have a difficult time connecting to your project. "Be yourself! That's rule number one,"
Find Some Help and Pay Attention to Details - finding a team to help you with your video and updates, This will remove much of the stress of creating the video from your plate as you delegate to those with skills beyond your own, pay attention to video and sound quality.
Engage Quickly - People are busy, so don't waste their time...make it compelling right from the start, Show off what you do best. If the viewer is with you after 10 seconds, then at least they may hear what your awesome project entails or your initial plea for their support. If they don't get to that point, you don't have a chance
Don't Miss Your One Chance to Impress - one of the most common mistakes in campaign videos is poorly planned or simply not thought through the content or audience. A second is poor production quality to the point where it's completely distracting. Your objective is to inspire confidence. (309)


4) Mobile is BI’s Big Stick
http://www.information-management.com/blogs/mobility-Business-Intelligence-big-stick-10023646-1.html

Touching on the area of: reaching and building your “Crowd in the Cloud”, the ever growing use of Social Media sites and venues to communicate and share information becomes a more and more valuable, even critical source for locating, connecting with and building your CROWD.
Just about all the business intelligence research analyst firms now break out mobility apps in their research work......lots of people have come to the realization that tablets and other smart devices are already the de facto platform for BI app development. this leads to the all important issues in how these “users’, and in CrowdFunding terms , potential Supporter and Funders, can be identified, and gathered together in a supportive and reactive, Crowd.
As platforms cross paths and purpose specific lightweight information applications increasingly come to bear, collaborative BI and Cloud BI are coming together with mobile over time to become the mainstream.
For anyone who missed it, 2012 has been the year of the four horsemen of social, mobile, analytic and cloud technologies. It may have been Cognizant who first described these "SMAC" modalities and understood the four things are interdependent and jointly synergistic. Gartner calls roughly the same mix “The Nexus of Forces;” Saugauck calls it “The Boundary-Free Enterprise;” IDC is calling it the “Third Platform.” Google “SMAC” or other combinations and you’ll see that this year saw a lot of ink on the topic(s).
The key to recognizing these trends in the overall information gathering world, is your Crowd is going Mobile!

5) Do you use Google Analytics for your website? If so, what has been your experience and what is the cost?
http://www.linkedin.com/answers/startups-small-businesses/small-business/STR_SMB/1074978-25188885

Given the importance of research in any CrowdFunding effort, a few moments on the importance of effective, low cost and valuable tools to utilize with your Innovative Product/Service web site, your Campaign video and your overall Electronic ( Internet based) Brand Identity. The understanding your “effectiveness” is the use of good analytical tools. This link will give you some Small Business Professional insight to the value they find with their Google environment:

One of the significant advantages of using the internet to market a business or provide a service online is that effectiveness can be measured relatively easily and in great detail. These are key to understanding and improving your efforts on the internet. Analytics tools are an essential part of this analysis...”. Dick Slackman -Owner Tenby Technologies

“It is imperative in my opinion to use google analytics on any website. Not only is it free, but it has established itself as the trusted source for verifying traffic and profitability.....” Joshua LindseyCapital Business Solutions

These are just a few of the Comment about the value of BI & the Analytics to ensure your Value to the Crowd

Review: One of the key messages we heard from entrepreneurs during the Startup Canada six-month National Tour was the need for a One-Stop-Shop to help Canadian entrepreneurs quickly and effectively plug into their local and national startup communities, to access support as and when they need it.

Startup Canada, as a volunteer-run, non-profit initiative, is seeking funds to build Startup Canada Connect as an online extension of its on-the-ground community and to create a central meeting place for Canadian entrepreneurs to connect with support, resources, associations, communities, news, events, and mentors. Startup Canada Connect will help entrepreneurs plug into local and national networks like never before, opening new doors of opportunity, inspiring startups across all sectors, and improving entrepreneurs’ access to tools for success, no matter where they are located in Canada.

Review: Gabriela Böhm, an award-winning documentary filmmaker. I make films about ordinary people who courageously stand up and fight for their rights and the rights of others.  In a time where no one dared to speak, Raquel alone defied her oppressors.
My new film is about an ordinary woman — Raquel Liberman — whose story was buried and forgotten. Raquel was a victim of sex trafficking in South America in the early 20th century. The film traces her journey from wife and mother to exploited woman to — in the end — a defiantly free woman.

Although In Raquel’s Footsteps is not about me, it embodies many elements of who I am. I, too, have had to find the courage to speak up. I am a rape survivor.
This film has been my passion for years. So much so that I’ve used my own money to finance its research, production and some postproduction. Now, I am broke.

Hi, my name is David Khorram
And My name is Steve Gutierrez


Welcome,
Today is 12/7/2012 and you are watching the broadcast of CFNewsTV, “CrowdFunding Daily News TV”

"We are CrowdFunding Guys / We are CrowdFunding Guys."

Our Passion is CrowdFunding, in all it’s forms and flavors!.

This video show is produced to provide you with most relevant and daily CrowdFunding news, campaign and information, this is to save time.Quality. Value. Convenience you expect with 30 minutes daily dose of CrowdFunding knowledge.


CFDN Focus on the top 5 crowdfunding News items for the Day:

1) How Crowdfunded Hardware Makers Hit It Big In 2012

http://blogs.wsj.com/venturecapital/2012/12/06/how-crowdfunded-hardware-makers-hit-it-big-in-2012/


Crowdfunding pioneers Indiegogo and Kickstarter opened up their fundraising platforms in 2008
and 2009 respectively, but 2012 may be the first year that tech investors and entrepreneurs took
crowdfunding very seriously.

Hardware projects especially grew into full-fledged businesses after humble beginnings. Most
notabily: Pebble Technology @ $10.27 Million
SkullCandy, Lemnos Labs / Bia Sport and many others
have raised Millions thru the use of Donation, Pre-Order, & Charitable CrowdFunding
Methodologies.

VCs have been looking for excuses to get out of investing in companies that they don’t believe
in since the beginning of time. They say no to startups for a million reasons. When you raise a
good amount of money and interest [through crowdfunding] you can show them, and yourself,
immediate validation that you are doing the right thing.” (146)



2) Crowdfunding takes early hit in MassachusettsCrowdfunding takes early hit in Massachusetts http://www.investmentnews.com/article/20121206/FREE/121209950#

The Bay State charges two firms with fraudulent securities sales in an enforcement effort
regarding the small, but potentially vast arena of CrowdFunding. Commonwealth Secretary
William Galvin filed fraud charges against two out-of-state oil and gas operations in connection
with their sale of unregistered securities to Massachusetts investors. Both Prodigy Oil and Gas
LLC and Synergy Oil LLC of Oklahoma are allegedly involve the sale of unregistered securities
to investors. The Securities and Exchange Commission has yet to write and publish the Equity
based CrowdFunding rules, that have been stressed that it is important for the SEC commission
to include 'bad actor' rules.

“An analysis of Internet domain names by state and Canadian securities regulators found nearly
8,800 domains with 'crowdfunding' in their name as of Nov. 30, up from fewer than 900 at the
beginning of the year,” NASAA said in a statement. “Of these websites, about 2,000 contained
content, more than 3,700 had no content and more than 3,000 appeared to be 'parked' and
serving as placeholders to reserve a domain name for later use or sale. Of the domains with
'crowdfunding' in their name, about 6,800 have appeared since April 2012, when the JOBS Act
was signed into law.”

The SEC clearly needs to complete and publish those rules and regulations to ensure the
benefits of the CrowdFunding, Capital Formation Methodologies effectively supports the
Business Commnuity and the Public Investor, to help grow the Stagnent American Economy.
(265)


3) Crowdfunding site "Christie Street" one-ups Kickstarter with audits, backer refunds http://www.theverge.com/2012/12/6/3737028/kickstarter-christie-street-audit-products

On Kickstarter and most crowdfunding platforms, the conventional wisdom is "backer beware" —
just because a product gets funded doesn't mean it will ever see the light of day. One
entrepreneur has launched a competing crowdfunding platform for products that will address this
issue, ....Funds will be dispersed in thirds so that backers can get a partial refund if a product 
fails to achieve a pre-production prototype or a manufacturing sample. Options are available to
validate campaigns with manufacturing industries experts and a formal Campaign review
Process targeted to ensure Viability. Additionally, Investors may be able to insure their
"investments" in order to preserve their entire investment for a premium or fee. This is an
ongoing effort and additional information will be available here at CFDN as we track this effort.
(151)


4) Peer-to-peer lenders welcome step towards regulation
http://news.yahoo.com/crowdfunding-websites-clamor-clearer-regulation-000356895--sector.html
LONDON (Reuters) - The peer-to-peer lending industry has welcomed a commitment by the
British government to regulate the internet-based financiers, describing it as a "watershed
moment". This parallels the efforts here in the USA to bring understandable guidelines to the
Debt & Equity based CrowdFunding Methodologies as Authorized under the JOBS ACT 2012.
The crowdfunding industry has developed in response to reduced bank lending for small and
medium-sized businesses because of tougher capital rules and greater regulatory scrutiny. As
well as making sure that individuals are aware of the inherent risk involved with putting money in
start-ups, the industry wants to ensure that platforms vet businesses adequately to avoid
scams. Views differ about how to tackle these risks without stifling an increasingly important
source of funding, and the matter is complicated by the varying rules already in place in different
countries. Here in the USA, we are anticipating that the SEC and the other co-ordinated


Financial regulatory entities will complete their efforts and complete the authorization process in
early 2013. (182)


It seems the New in this cycle is all about Regulations and the assertion that CrowdFunding in the USA, North America will be a fair, upright and Validated process. Our Final article of the day covers:


5) NASAA Fires Off Warning as Crowdfunding Accelerates
http://www.advisorone.com/2012/12/07/nasaa-fires-off-warning-as-crowdfunding-accelerate?t=marketing-technology 

Crowdfunding’s presence on the Internet has exploded in recent months, and the North American
Securities Administrators Association (NASAA) sees a big potential for abuse. However,
through the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act, small businesses and entrepreneurs
will be able to tap into the “crowd” in search of investments to finance their business ventures
once the SEC adopts rules to do so.

In a related article: SEC, NASAA Tell Small Businesses: Wait to Join the ‘Crowd’
http://www.advisorone.com/2012/07/24/sec-nasaa-tell-small-businesses-wait-to-join-the-c

The Securities and Exchange Commission and state regulators are warning small businesses
and entrepreneurs to hold off on joining the “crowd.”.....wait until the SEC has finalized its
crowdfunding rules before offering shares in any such ventures for public sale. “Until that time,
federal and state securities law prohibitions remain in place against publicly accessible Internet
securities offerings,” said NASAA.

The JOBS Act directs the SEC to adopt rules within 270 days to implement a new exemption to
allow entrepreneurs and small businesses to offer investments in their ventures through
crowdfunding. But Kim said that a time frame for an SEC rulemaking on equity crowdfunding is
“challenging.” SEC staff in the agency’s divisions of Corporation Finance and Trading and
Markets ( CFTM) as well as agency economists are “working closely together” to develop
recommendations for the Commission.

While crowdfunding has been going on for a number of years as a form of raising money through
donations, the SEC must formalize rules for equity crowdfunding, which, as set out in the JOBS
Act, allows capital raising through investors via Internet funding portals. “The requirements of
federal and state securities laws regarding disclosures, including disclosures of all material facts
and risks to investors, remains in place,” the NASAA advisory says. 

Additionally, “small businesses are important to the nation’s economic growth, and the
crowdfunding concept has the potential to provide legitimate small, innovative enterprises with
access to capital that might not otherwise be available.” (342)

Hi, my name is David Khorram
And My name is Steve Gutierrez

Welcome,
Today is Thursday, Dec 5th and you are watching the broadcast of CFDNewsTV, (CrowdFunding Daily News TV)

"We are CrowdFunding Guys"

Our Passion is CrowdFunding, in all it’s forms and flavors!.

This video show is produced to provide you with most relevant and daily CrowdFunding news, campaign and information, this is to save time.Quality. Value. Convenience you expect with 30 minutes daily dose of CrowdFunding knowledge.


We will Focus on the top 5 crowdfunding News items for the Day:


1) Crowdfunding Holds Promise for Future Equity-Based Transactions
http://www.sacbee.com/2012/12/05/5032644/crowdfunding-holds-promise-for.html

Dough for Hostess Campaign Shows Encouraging Preliminary Results, the Hostess Bakery Company has launched over the Thanksgiving holiday a CrowqdFunding Campaign where "thousands of Individuals have flocked to the site from around the world showing their support approaching $2Million in pledges. Once the SEC releases its final rules for Title II crowdfunding, DoughforHostess will begin legal pursuit of turning those pledges into actual dollars. This wave of support & early results show that not only do the American people want a voice in saving an iconic brand and the 18,500 jobs at stake with it. I'll call This a "Twinkie Surge", and ask all of you to called the White House, your Senator and Congressional representatives to get the SEC rules for the JOB ACTS completed and published for the first of 2013.
(151)


2) Idiegogo Site Expansion

Further signs of growth in the Capital Formation methodology, is the expansion of INDIEGOGO. Crowd-Funding Site Indiegogo Is Going International by TechDEALS & Bloomberg News Indiegogo, a popular site for entrepreneurs to raise money for their projects, added three new currencies today in a bid to draw more users from outside the U.S.. Pledges can now be made in Euros, British pounds or Canadian dollars.
The site, which has been open to users worldwide, will introduce early next year home pages tailored by region for people based in either the U.S., Canada, France, Germany or the U.K, highlighting local projects....Thirty percent of Ideigogo's business is international, which is a shockingly big number considering our site is only offered in English and in U.S. dollars.”
Kickstarter and Indiegogo are going up against European startups, such as London-based Seedrs, which allow for small investments in exchange for equity. That’s something the U.S. companies don’t do because the practice isn’t yet allowed . (A provision of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act that hasn’t been implemented yet would change that.
Looks like our Home grown CrowdFunders are not able to compete in the international market equally, until the JOBS ACT is implemented, AGAIN, called the White House, Senate and Congressional offices and get the SEC rules and regulations published.

NOW: turning to the Successes we are having:.. Forbes brings us a Now what article.

 
3) You've Just Crowdfunded Your Way to Success -- Now What?

The days flew by, the money poured in, and before you knew it, your project was successfully crowdfunded. As the celebrations begin and you start to imagine things on a larger scale than ever before, reality begins to set in. The hard work is just about to begin. .... some project creators raising 10 times more than they had anticipated. While this seems like a great scenario, metrics are very precarious with new businesses. If a company is prepared to create 1,000 units of their product, and they receive 10,000 orders, they may not have the production means to keep up with such demand. A few Key management points:
a) Make sure your inform every single supporter that you have been fully funded, and THANK THEM
b) Utilize your new found followers via E-mail, and all the SOcial Media avenues to reach them thru to get the funding support, to inform, seek their valuable input, adn update your campaign page and especially your Company web site, as a hub for information, progress and Crowd-Management to grow and direct the enthusiasm for your coming product.
c) Manage the "delays" and the product development process as you scale up and begin the QA and fulfillment processes early and often. set expectations so that you can deliver early from the well planned commitment time-frames and exceed their expectations. Keep in mind, CREDIBILITY is what sold them at the beginning, do not lose that Valuable Asset.
d) While your Campaign is in the funding Stage, seek out the most flexible low cost and scalable support infrastructure to assemble the Business systems to manage your Design, Test and Q&A, Manufacturing, then Distribute your product and provide premium Customer Support Services , , now that you have the money to do it.
AS We at CrowdFunding Planning have worked with numerous campaigns, and bring that Business Advise and Governance input to our clients, there are very Valuable, Flexiable and Functional CLOUD enabled Business Services that start out very low cost and can grow as fast as you can manage the business, without costing you time and resources to build, install and train more staff to implement. More on this area, that I am calling the "Post CFunding Marathon".
We at CFP, have numerous Mentors, Coaches & Consultants, CF ready in these support and services areas. More to come on this challenging area,,,,,,,,delivering on that Promise. (409)


4) NASAA sees spike in online CrowdFunding (NorthAmerican Securities Admin. Asso.)
http://www.investmentexecutive.com/-/nasaa-sees-spike-in-online-crowdfunding

From Investment Executive
State and provincial securities regulators are stepping up their surveillance for possible investment fraud among a surge in crowdfunding ventures. This is a good thing and will ensure the integrity of the growing and wide spread process that, in the non-Equity form, is already funding everything from charity to artistic projects in the form of donations and loans, but it cannot yet be used to distribute securities.
"NASAA is promoting a proactive approach to identify problematic websites, rapidly share information about those websites with appropriate state and provincial securities regulators and engage in a prompt, meaningful and coordinated education and enforcement response. (121)


5) GoodData Rides BI in the Cloud for Business Value
http://blog.ventanaresearch.com/2012/12/05/gooddata-rides-bi-in-the-cloud-for-busine

 From Ventana Research BI in the cloud goes beyond the traditional cloud advantages of reducing capital expenditures, faster time-to-value, and scalability; BI in the cloud allows for greater flexibility in adding new data sources, experimenting with analytical models and sharing data across the value chain. This is particularly valuable to the StartUP and SMB for several reasons. 


  • a) Cloud based analysis of your market, it's potential and Gepographic distribution, are fundamentals to find, cultivate and Build YOUR CROWD.
  • b) The flexiability and low cost use of a Cloud implementation, can support the varying needs of the Startup and SMB while this Enterprise grade research is needed, yet at a "Nickle & Dime", "on-Demand" expenditure model, until the Sales, Marketing & On-going Subscription based business needs are established post a CrowdFunding Campaign.
  • c) The use and availability of Verticle market, and/or Public Information Data stores (repositories) is wide spread and growing, since the new business does not have it own information record form business operations.
There are countless means and methods of the use of research, data analysis and the predictive analytics that can be gleemed from a solid Business Intelligence Plan as part of a continuing process of CrowdFunding campaigns and the launching of your business innovation. (228)

They have tried the usual methods, "Trial & Error", "Find the Expert", seek input from their high priced and talented "staff", but do they find the answer?...or create several other down stream problems. or....like in the "Do you want to be a Millionaire TV Show", ask the audience ??? or in a broader and more diverse way, ask the Internet accessible CROWD of nearly 3 Billions users from each and every day, all around the world?
A Video within this article, "Finding Answers using CrowdSourcing" by Ian Cohen ( former KPMG) is well worth the 40 minutes, in that it provides a set of compelling reasons to learn to seek and find the input, advice and information from, and the building processes of, Building an Expert Crowd.
The entire Crowd Building Process is integrill to the emerging world of Crowd Funding and all of its Crowd components.
It is not a set of answers or outline to success in the Crowd, but it is an Insight into "Thinking-out-side-the Box" and understanding that now in the Networking Age, the business paradigm is ............... The Global Crowd.
The lesson, almost learned by accident here, is that " Business in Not as Usual "  (246)


CrowdFunding Quote of the Day:


“Worrying does not empty tomorrow empties today of its strength and potential.”

Excerpt:
Hi, my name is David Khorram
And My name is Steve Gutierrez

Welcome,

"We are CrowdFunding Guys / We are the CrowdFunding Guys"

Our Passion is CrowdFunding, in all it’s forms and flavors!.

Your Source for the Latest Crowdfunding News, campaigns and information from Around the Web


Focus on the top 5 Crowdfunding News items for the Day:

1) Lockitron: The app that unlocked crowd-funding success
http://edition.cnn.com/2012/11/30/business/lockitron-start-up/index.html

Lockitron, which enables doors to be unlocked through a smart phone, was rejected by Kickstarter in October. It was turned away for being a home improvement product, which the funding platform does not support.
But then Lockitron went "DIY" on its own crowd-funding.
In one day, orders hit $500,000. They are now sitting at $2.2 million, the equivalent of more than 15,000 units.
This highlights the need to Build your Crowd and create that following that will support your product, effort or cause.


2) Prepare Yourself for Crowdfunding Success
http://www.openforum.com/articles/prepare-yourself-for-crowdfunding-success/

Amidst this confusion, it’s important to proceed carefully. Here are some tips on how to start preparing your business today.
Get Professional Advise
Craft a clear Communications Path
Choose the right Platform
New Data from CfPA ( CrowdFunding Professional Aossociation)http://crowdfundingprofessional.org/new-data-released-by-the-crowdfunding-professional-association-cfpa-shows-surprisin, November Survey, show that even with High enthusiasm and positive expectations, less than 40 % of a sample of 442 entrepreneurs, investors and intermediaries rated themselves as having a 5 or less out of 10, in their understanding of the JOB ACT and Equity CrowdFunding. Sounds like Education and Information is a key to helping this new Legislation become successful in it ability to help the Economy. See CrowdFunding Planning.com for that up-to-date Information and Education from the well of accumulated and organized CF Data.


3) Can Crowdfunding Create Jobs and Will The Government Help? ....or Hinder? http://www.forbes.com/sites/chancebarnett/2012/12/03/can-crowdfunding-create-jobs-will-the-government-help/

Now that the Presidential election is over, it’s time for the country to get back to work on the economic and job growth plans ....... most recent Bureau of Labor Statistics report:

U.S. unemployment rate is 7.9%, 12 million looking for work.
1. Unlocking Institutional Capital for Investment
2. Investing in Community and Small Businesses
3. Supporting Sustainable Supply Chains
4. Investing in Measurable Impact
5. Exploring New Corporate Forms

Looking at these, 3 to 4 of the 5 topics touch on the idea of increased investment or “access to capital” for small businesses. The S.B.A. has outlined that 65% of new jobs in the U.S. over the last 17 years have been created by small businesses. .... most companies have profit growth goals, not employee growth goals...... revenue growth in a company that is one of the best determinants for whether a small business will hire and create new jobs....Without Capital, Businesses can not invest in growth and profits and hire more people. Get the JOBS ACT implemented!

Contact our Congressional & Senate leaders & the White House to get this done and stop playing "Gotcha Games"


2) Why Successful Crowdfunding Requires a Social-Media Mind-Set http://blogs.hbr.org/cs/2012/12/why_successful_crowdfunding_re.html 

Harvard Business review
why it's particularly important for would-be recipients of crowdfunding to understand social media and the way social-technology users think. First, crowdfunders seem to understand the high risk of putting money into a new idea Second, what seems to be happening is that the "social media culture," in which people feel close to and want to be part of brands they like, is extending into social investing.....with risks and rewards It seems it's not just a cold, calculated financial investment,

They should engage customers and other potential funders through social media and present a human face.
This is more than a straightforward financial holding. Like social media itself, it's all about community.


1) What SEO Features Should Your E-Commerce Software Offer?...
http://www.searchenginejournal.com/e-commerce-software-features/53428/

With thousands of individual product detail pages and category pages, e-commerce sites have many opportunities for great SEO. However, it is critical that you choose an e-commerce platform that allows you to control the many factors that are important for SEO....this applies with great improtance when building your Brand awareness in the begining statges of CrowdBuilding for your CrowdFunding campaign.

It is about tools: the verification of the website through Google and Bing Webmaster Tools
These platforms allow you to see crawl errors, update SEO settings for your website, and more......

Next: Google Analytics Ecommerce... this is invaluable to understanding your Crowd XML Sitemap

Product Detail Pages—Titles & Descriptions

There are a host of additional web site Value Proposition items that must be incorporated into your Business Branding and Product/service Internet Marketing Identification. The expert advice and guidance of skills professionals in these areas will make a big difference in the success level of your CF efforts and business operations as a whole....

In fact, we here at CFP, belief and are comnfirming that CF should be a continuous part of your business efforts at all times......the value of a loyal and supportive Crowd, in the Cloud, will support your enterprise level growth!...

"CROWDFUNDING PERILS, and how to Avoid them"
Everyone has an opinion on the crowdfunding industry these days: it’s the new thing; it’s over; it’s just getting started, it’s overheated; it’s the future of finance, it’s fundamentally flawed."    
When it comes to investing in Business and especially StartUps, like in all things, there are risks and rewards.....to think there are not, is just FOOLISH.

Adverse Selection -- the perception "that the wizards of smart" in the tech industry, the Silicon Valley Venture Capitalists, have passed on an idea and that is why the "second rate idea" is seeking CrowdFunding....well the VC world may review up to 10, 000 ideas, before they select a handfull to fund at a .1% success rate in the Growth Sector, and the innovation rarely gets a glance, never mind the opportunity to "make that pitch".....what about the #2-5 on the VC shortlist, that do not fit their exact "profile"

Due Dilligence Constraints -- 
businesses in industries that require heavy technical backgrounds, gaining an understanding of the marketplace and of a particular company’s position within it requires real expertise. The VC environment is filled with "experts" that come at a heavy price to determine the "Proof of Concept", or Business Model, and verify Intellectual Property and Copy write or Patent issues.  This takes enormous amounts of time & effort, in addition to complexities in Ownership.

Investment Terms (Bad or Good) -- This is an issue that is best discussed from the perspective of the Business owner/Innovative StartUP, not the Profit motivated Investor.  With CrowdFunding, the Entrepreneur has the opportunity to present a case, where the idea ownership is pre-determined and the Inventor does not end up as an employee to the Investors, that do not have the idea, passion or vested interest in a term of success beyond the invested "exit Strategy"

Regulatory Issues -- This is an area filled with the SEC, Congressional oversite, FINRA and every version of "expert" that makes a buck in the process.  The regulations will be protective from fraud, hidden ricks and require a full level of disclosure.  Like in all investments, due your own research and make your own decisions.  All the Broker/dealers and Expert advisors made a bunch of money on the FaceBook IPO, have any of those that bought the Stock @ $38 made a dime yet?  Every bit of "advise" has an overt cost and a hidden cost, be aware and due your investing homework ?


Quote of the Day:

Success is getting up one more time than you fall down

CrowdFunding Planning Daily News TV - 11/30/2012 - A 30 Minute Daily Dose of CrowdFunding Knowledge

Excerpt:
Hi, my name is David Khorram
And My name is Steve Gutierrez

Welcome,

Today is 11/30/2012 and you are watching the Second broadcast of CFNewsTV, “CrowdFunding Daily News TV”
We are CrowdFunding Guys / We are CrowdFunding Guys

Today we will Focus on the top 5 crowdfunding News items for the Day:

5) Lessons From Crowdfunding In The UK With @Crowdcube 

In Canada, our neighbors to the north, the legalization of CrowdFunding and the setting of those rules and regulations is being managed in a much different way then here in the USA, with the SEC. It seems the Canadian Government with “Alliance iCanada”& Invest CrowdFund Canada, has built a collaboration of National Momentum leaders and Provincial leaders, with a focused mission of promoting Capitalism. their mission statement “to be leaders who are volunteering to create legislative change to legalize investment crowdfunding and bring Canada forward in its support of growing start-ups.
Can learn something from our Northern Neighbors?

4) Ontario examines ways to loosen crowdfunding rules 

Again, our neighbors to the north are “ seeking to championed the possibilities crowdfunding offers, according to a source close to Mr. McGuinty, who recently noted the Ontario Securities Commission is contemplating a crowdfunding exemption to the Securities Act.” This effort seem to be much like our efforts in encouraging our Securities and Exchange Commision, (SEC) to get the defined rules and guidelines written and implemented. It seems a little or a lot of encouragement is need thru our House, Senate & Business Leaders to move this forward here in America, or another piece of Capitalism may be outsourced?


3) WEFUNDER RAISES $530K THROUGH OWN CROWDFUNDING INITIATIVE 
http://www.crowdsourcing.org/editorial/wefunder-raises-530k-through-own-crowdfunding-initiative/22174
In the USA, the creative one are working around the Slow and tedius Legislative processes here with the SEC and the Congress, The complicated and very closely managed process of Equity Funding utilizing “Blue Sky State Security laws” permitting small numbers of individuals, unaccredited investors to pitch in cash in return for equity.” This is more the exception than the rule, where earlier this year, the JOBS ACT will permit CrowdFunding for the public at large to makes these investments based upon their interests, knowledge and desire to support an innovative idea. The USA version, still needs the SEC to hammer out the final rules.

2) A Guide to CrowdFunding

Over the past 2-3 years, there have been some 350-500 CrowdFunding web sites that have sprouted up, all offering infoomation, advise, services and a variety of related capabilities in support of the North American CrowdFunding momentum.

A Guide to Crowd Funding http://www.northcoastjournal.com/news/2012/11/29/crowd-funding-basics/“The Journal”, recently published a concise summary of the top 3-4 CrowdFunding Portals as ranked in web traffic by “Alexa” the Internet ranking site, somewhat like the Neilson ratings for TV. the overviewed the areas of CrowdFunding by business/cause verticals, fees and costs and requirements to achieve to actually received the pledged funds, some take as much as 10% off the top, others hold the entire amount until the “goal” is achieved, and some cater to specific audience types. These analysis can be very helpful to the funding business, StartUp and enterepreneur, as they seek alternatives to get their Innovative Idea to market. All can be found on by searchingall over the web. or summarized and catalogued at CFP. You can find all this valuable information by simply searching “What is CrowdFunding?”

And, for our Top Story of the Day, we turn to the simple fundamental of a successful Business........
“...Build a better mousestrap, and the world will beat a path to your door....”

1) How CrowdFunding built a better bottle cutter this article found locally here in Southern Califormia in:

 

Being raised in the Information Technology age, from the invention of the PC, when at IBM, thru all the emerging Cloud and Virtualization Technologies of today, Kinkajou founder Patrick Lehoux discuss how crowdfunding helped him not only launch his product, but confirm its market.
This article highlights the absolute need to understand & test your potential market. Patrick says, “
The main reason for turning to crowdfunding was to prove that the idea was commercially viable.”
With a focus on using inexpensive and powerful internet based analytical tools, the Entrepreneur can leverage the “ The real power of crowdfunding …. that is the ability to bring public awareness to your idea or product. If managed properly, this awareness can be used as launch pad for something much larger!
The entire Subject of “Cloud Based Analytics” is the hidden building block to Successful Crowd-Building-Funding & Management. More of this topic in future CF DN shows & on our web site CROWDFUNDINGPLANNING.COM or just find it by searching “WHAT IS CROWDFUNDING”

Now that ‘s a Crowd! Roll of business attorney in CrowdFunding Growing company that doesn't get the right legal attention may harm its valuation and, best case, will have thorny and expensive problems to clean up later.


Lawyering in the startup ecosystem.

  • NDA 
  • Contracts
  • Corporation 
  • Partnership agreement

CrowdFunding Conference Announcements & Educational Events
The 4th section of our show is dedicated to CrowdFunding Conferences and Educational Events across the Country hopefully near you, where you can attend and participate, meeting with CrowdFunding experts that are available to help you understand and even use some of the most successful CrowdFunding techniques.

1. Is The Cloud Ready For Data Warehousing?
http://www.business2community.com/tech-gadgets/is-the-cloud-ready-for-data-warehousing-0344456#IkF4QhMd0GxtwqhZ.99
This is a good summary of the issue, yet a bit pessimistic perspective covering :

Enterprise-wide control: From system to platform
Cost: From product to service
Performance: From managing for peaks to self-service provisioning
Agility: From long lead times to on-demand capacity

This capability is availably in a straight forward way, for free or almost free in numerous forms. Finding it and using it is an area to cover in detail here on CFDN and within the Education Support systems @ CFP

2. Where are big data and BI heading in 2013?
http://news.idg.no/cw/art.cfm?id=017A9AD0-DC8C-0007-5D4D0E74B5704257
The Global enterprise that is utilizing the industrial versions of this technology to market and sell their products and services, is just a few computer clicks away for the StartUp and innovative Entrepreneur. There are white papers, webinars and information resources all over the internet to support the Market Analysis, Cloud Enablement & Crowd Building & Development needs of the Startup and Small business that are just as powerful and effective.

This is proving more and more the “magic” of How CrowdFunding , to start, grow and enable your business on a, day to day basis, is becomming the Enterprise of the Networking Age.

David , what is the “quote of the day “ today ?
The quote is : 

  “Ideas are a dime a dozen. People who implement them are priceless.

“The Shemie,” a layering garment for women, created by Los Angeles based stylist Shelton Wilder, has successfully launched on Kickstarter after debuting nationally on ABC’s Shark Tank.
After appearing on the critically acclaimed show for budding entrepreneurs, on Friday Oct 26th, and not securing a deal with one of the Sharks, Wilder is looking to the support of her Shark Tank fans and Shemie lovers to reach her goal of $29,000 in 30 days to start production in her home state of North Carolina.
“I’m thrilled for the opportunity to be on Shark Tank, which is like having a $2 million commercial for Shemie, and now I’m using all of my “POSITRON” and determination for the launch.” Since Wilder’s appearance on Shark Tank, the phone has been steadily ringing with potential investors inquires, and orders from boutiques, online stores and major retailers.
For years Wilder struggled to style her clients with undergarments that would make their outfits wearable, especially when designers were making clothes too sheer, too low cut, and too short.

CrowdFunding Planning Daily News TV - 11/29/2011 - A 30 Minute Daily Dose of CrowdFunding Knowledge

Excerpt:
Hi, my name is David Khorram
And My name is Steve Gutierrez

Welcome,
Today is   11/29/2012 and you are watching the Second broadcast of CFNewsTV,   “CrowdFunding  Daily News TV”
We are CrowdFunding Guys  / We are CrowdFunding Gus
Our Passion is CrowdFunding, in all it’s forms and flavors!


We will Focus on the top 5 CrowdFunding News items for the Day:

5) What Is Crowdfunding And How Does It Benefit The Economy

This article , From Forbes Magazine identifies that CF is “new” in today discussions, yet it has been around for centuries.  A simple definition,  It  is the  accumulation of small amounts of funding in support of a an idea, product or cause from the community at large.  Todays modern version, is oriented to use the Internet to reach that supportive Community or Crowd.  

The key steps is a dedicated effort to build “your Crowd”, leveraging all the socail media and email  efforts is an absolute necessity to successfully showcase and fund your effort.

Campaigns Highlighting the Economic benefit, “focused on not what you are doing, but why you are doing it” have been well supported, as well as efforts to aid the innovative business or StartUp in our sluggish and  stagnant economy, especially those seeking jobs and employment.


4) Scientists Use Crowdfunding To Raise Funds And Awareness For Autism Research

Brought to us at “RedOrbit”, and brings a very valuable  aspect of CrowdFunding to light.   The Charitable cause, in this case, Autism Research.  Most of us have heard of and scene many of the research and diseases related efforts that  need some form of ongoing and special research help.  This fits the success model of CF since it is reaches out to the general public , it seeks small increments of donation support and will help a very special cause, that of children afflicted by this illness.
Autism and Protein Markers @ Clarkson University
Autism Intervention: Seeing Faces as a Whole  - Penn State University
KOULE the Smart Ball - a child development device that comes pre-loaded with games forautism-specific applications.
These are just a few of the University & Educational collaborative CrowdFunding efforts that have emerged


3) Strangers Pay for Medical Bills; Ozarks Couple Shares 'Crowdfunding' Story
 
This is a similar story to the Autism research,  we just highlighted.  It is about the Friends and family that have turned to social media & CF to help Drew Lewis and Amy Blansit pay for thousands of dollars in medical bills while he fights stage 4 colon cancer.   This effort is utilizing A key element of a Successful CrowdFunding campaign, is a very touching and candid family video, highlighting the steps of the medical processes and the family’s struggle  dealing with a distance of nearly 800 miles and the need for help from people all around the world.  The  effort has reached around the world and to achieve the surgery funding goal that the Insurance Carrier denied to cover,  saving a father and husband fighting this potentially life ending cancer.


2) Turning to another aspect of CrowdFunding and all that is happening with this new legislation.

The vast potentials attainable for Businesses, Charities and numerous other creative uses of “the incremental funding process”.   A very interesting article  ...Utilizing the CrowdBuilding component of CrowdfFunding called “CrowdSourcing”.   This important fundamental     CROWD BUILDING   is a basic component of all the forms of CrowdFunding, CrowdSourcing and all the Crwod Enabled methodologies.
The Article:
“Tedril Powers Winning Energy Efficiency Apps In First-Of-Its-Kind Crowdsourcing Developers Challenge

This article outline the use of  the Crowd to design, test and improve computer and mobile apps to enhance the efficiency of the use of energy.  By gathering this use data at the meter from participating households, many uses and efficiency capabilities can be now available to the consumer, any where they are and can turn off and on the energy consuming resources from their home or office, better managing their consumption and usage trends.    Sounds like we truely are in the “Network Age”!

And Now, the most important News item of the day:

1) SEC Chairman Mary Schapiro to step down  

After a tumultuous four years spent rehabilating the Agency’s battered reputation, Mary Schapiro will step down next month as ChairWoman of the SEC.  Commisioner Elisse Walters, a career SEC regulator in support of  Ms.Schapiro’s policies and leadership efforts, will “manage the store” until approval from the Senate is secured for a long term replacement.
The new chair will need to continue the SEC restructuring process, money market reforms, market structure safeguards, rules to implement the 2010 Dodd-Frank financial reform legislation, and many other  regulatory issues including the bi-partisan approved and supported  JOBS ACT 0f 2012, that allows Debt & Equity Based CrowdFunding in the USA.  
With the SEC Board now split 2-2,  between Democrats and Republicans, it appears that it will become deadlocked and the JOBS ACT could be indefinitely delayed, further limiting the Business community . finding sources of Capital and new Economic Growth.
Let's contact our Congress and make sure this delay does not happen!


CrowdFunding Campaign Review

AERO 3D Bird Flight Game with Bill Nye and GameDesk

AERO is a beautiful, open-world 3D bird-flight game that teaches the physics principles behind the power of flight.
Bill Nye the Science Guy is part of  CrowdFunding Campaign hosted by Kickstarter.



Seeing a plane or bird in soar in the sky is amazing to behold. But the aerodynamics and physics behind the miracle of flight are difficult to grasp. There are several forces engaged when a bird or plane flies, and here on earth we're unable to see any of them. But never fear!  Bill Nye andGameDesk have a revolutionary idea! With your help we can complete a game that teaches the physics behind flight by allowing players to literally become a bird and experience those scientific principles in their own hands

It is a game to learn and teach science  of flying

2 - CROWDFUNDING/ TOP 5 NEWS (Steve)
Now. we will Focus on the top 5 crowdfunding News items for the Day:

5) How Much Does Crowdfunding Cost (Musicians)?    http://goo.gl/uj1YN

This article highlights the numerous cost elements of building, launching, managing and then Fulfilling the promises made in a successful Pre-Order CF Campaign.   Key issue: you must plan for the fulfillment stage, before you achieve the funding goal of the Campaign

4)  Deadline approaching for CrowdFunding Regulators   http://goo.gl/NnEHN

In discussion of the SEC rules and regulations for Equity & Debt based CrowdFunding, the potential for the FINRA ( Federal Investment Regulatory Agency) to severely slow down the implementation of the single piece of “bi-Partisitan legislation, this year on the JOBS ACT, or the CrowdFunding Bill.

3) Crowdfunding for a Cause: Nonprofits Can Now Hold Fundraisers on Crowdtilt  http://goo.gl/Mti1j


An exclusive avenue for the registered and certified Non-Profit 501(c)(3) organization to seek funding and those Donors, seeking to fund that special cause can meet and complete these valuable charitable transactions and support that charatible entity.

2) Five Unanswered Questions About Crowdfunding   http://goo.gl/LSXOE  


As the SEc works to complete filling in the rulles and regulations to the JOBS ACT, that authorized Debt & Equity CrowdFunding in America, there are still key questions to answer:
  1. What will the CF Interfediaries look like?
  2. How will the keep the bad actors out?
  3. What roles will State regulators play?
  4. When will the rules be set?
  5. Will fraud make CrwodFunding Radioactive?
This article come to us from BloombergBusinessweek, and the comments to the article are almost more interesting.  My believe is that the Current Capital Formation Markets, are not working for the Business Innovator, with that great idea nor for the donator/investor, that lerns of a great idea they see value in and want to see succed.  Maybe a little competition for “investment “ dollars by all involved with produce a better end product?...isn’t that the goal?

1) Star Citizen Crowdfunding Earned Over $6 Million    http://goo.gl/hD4m8


This is a major milestone in the CrowdFunding Environment.  For the First time ever, a single, two-pronged drive for Star Citizen . a “Gaming Industry”  market company, finally concluded on Monday with a final total of $6,238,563 USD, from a total Crowd, of Eager Supporters of 89,667 backers.
