Almost a year ago, or eleven months ago to be precise, a brilliant crowd-based angel investment project was introduced to the South African tech startup stage, called Crowdfund. The idea, started by well-known web strategist Eve Dmochowska, included big plans for crowdsourcing funds for worthy local startups.
CrowdFund seems to have gone disappointingly quiet. When Memeburn initially contacted Dmochowska in January this year to get an update on the project it reported on last year, a promise to come back to us did not materialise. Repeated attempts by Memeburn to contact Dmochowska over a space of four weeks by email and phone went unanswered or were unsuccessful.
