How to design your own crowdfunding platform

This is the second part of my three-part series exploring some of the aspects entrepreneurs need to consider when designing a crowdfunding platform. The context for my posts has been a close look at the French crowdfunding market place and in-depth interviews with ten owners of French crowdfunding platforms. In my first post I presented a few factors that I felt made it more difficult for French crowdfunding platforms to achieve the same levels of explosive growth that are being experienced by crowdfunding platforms in the US. In this article I take a closer look at the different models that are being tested in the French market. I conducted interviews with ten owners of French crowdfunding platforms. Specifically, I spoke with: Smiti Arbia of carnetdemode.com, Nicolas Bailly of touscoprod, Alexandre Boucherot of Ulule, Hortense Garand of babeldoor.com, Michael Goldman of MyMajorCompany, Nicolas Guillaume of Friendsclear, Angel Ramos of revenonsalamusique.com, Vincent Ricordeau of KissKissBankBank, and Yannick Robert of Mywittygames.com.


At first glance, looking through the initiatives listed on the different crowdfunding websites, it’s easy to draw the conclusion that all crowdfunding ventures are the same; projects, causes or entrepreneurial ventures that are looking for funding. However, upon closer look, a number of characteristics that uniquely identify the different types of crowdfunding initiatives become apparent. Setting aside the different areas of focus for their mission (such as initiatives related to: music, movies, shows, fashion, books, journalism, horse racing, etc.), there is a recognizable set of goals that people raising capital through crowdfunding platforms are trying to achieve.

Crowdfunding Lessons Learned From "Designing Obama" Creator Scott Thomas

The design director for the 2008 Obama presidential campaign, Scott Thomas was an early pioneer on Kickstarter with his Designing Obama campaign. At a time when few crowdfunding programs had caught the public’s eye, and raising six-figure amounts through online pledges seemed just a pipe dream, he managed to pull in an impressive $84,613 for a historical book chronicling the art and design that helped propel Barack Obama into office.

Crowdsourcing: Measuring the Impact of the Crowd in Funding and Doing

I have identified four different models of crowdsourcing activities: wisdom, creation, voting, and funding. There’s isn’t one best way to do it – and many organizations use a combination of these models to meet their objectives. Social media tools  for engaging and capturing the work of crowds include: wikis, custom platforms or web sites that facilitate voting, rating, giving feedback, adding content, or funding. And, you can use social media tools such as Twitter, Facebook, Blogs, to support engaging crowds to participate in the activity.

Open Innovation Vs. Co-creation
Open Innovation
Obvious first question is ‘Does Open innovation and Co-creation need to be put against each other or even put together?’ Not really, unless you are already wondering about the differences! You question if there is a common ground. Or simply you want to use these terms and be on the same page with someone else.

Let’s attempt theory of elimination......

Is crowdsourcing dead? How creative crowdsourcing platforms evolve

When Jeff Howe coined the term crowdsourcing back in 2006, he defined it as  »the act of a company or institution taking a function once performed by employees and outsourcing it to an undefined (and generally large) network of people in the form of an open call » (this definition is still on Wikipedia). Today, other buzzwords like co-creation and open innovation flood the marketing and innovation blogs. To know what’s happening with crowdsourcing, let’s just take a look at how the platforms based on crowdsourcing principles evolve. Let’s take a look at different types of platforms using crowdsourcing principles : virtual ad agencies, creativity platforms and (still) the crowd-sourcers.

VIRTUAL AD AGENCIES


I recently found an interesting blog post about discussing well-known crowdsourcing websites. Peter La Motte, president of GeniusRocket, describes how his websites’ model is not an open crowdsouring platform anymore, but rather « an agency powered by the crowd «. This means that ideas and storyboards are crowdsourced, but they only go into production when the client has given feedback and approves the project. This is the main difference with open platforms like Poptent or eYeka, who are open platforms for various creative people who can choose which projects they want to participate in. Other virtual ad agencies include Victors&Spoils, founded by John Winsor (a review of his book Flipped here), and Tongal. I like Tongal’s video because it explains how the crowd is leveraged to select and refine ideas:
