Crowdcube is a new crowdfunding website that hope to act as a meeting point between entrepeneurs that are seeking investment and "funders" that have the necessary financial support to do so. This removes the obstacles most entrepreneurs face when they are looking for funding options from banks, angel investors and venture capital.
Crowdcube is not exactly "the world's first crowdfunding" website, but they do adopt a unique approach towards crowdfunding that could give supporters more value for their wallet. Instead of funding and then leaving as most crowdsourcing platforms do, supporters will have the chance to attain shares in the company that they invest in. This not only stimulates more interaction, but enables "funders" to see that crowdfunding is more than just clicking "enter" after filling in their credit card details!
Founded in 2010, the industry website, Crowdsourcing.org, is a neutral organization dedicated solely
to crowdsourcing and crowdfunding. As one of the most influential and credible authorities in the crowdsourcing space,
Crowdsourcing.org is recognized worldwide for its intellectual capital, crowdsourcing and crowdfunding
practice expertise and unbiased thought leadership.
