Crowdfund Investing: A Zero-Cost Initiative to Create Jobs
Crowdfunding

There is a solution to the nation’s poor growth and anemic state of job creation. However, it requires updating Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) regulations regarding general solicitation and accreditation so average Americans can choose to invest in local small businesses. It is called Crowdfund Investing (CFI) — a common sense idea that has attracted the interest and support of President Barack Obama. Republican House member Patrick McHenry (NC) recently introduced H.R. 2930, the Entrepreneur Access to Capital Act, legislation that aligns with the general framework supported by the President. So here we have a “common ground” idea where both sides of the political aisle agree on many key details. There is no excuse to move slowly with crowdfund investing as it will help thousands of small businesses and add fuel to our gasping economy.

Nascent entrepreneurs and growth-oriented firms continue to have a difficult time finding capital to expand, innovate and grow. Of course, our nation has counted on the job-creating prowess of small businesses to lead us out of difficult economic periods. This time around, unfortunately, the uncertainties have become too great. New start-ups, which have fueled job creation after previous recessions, have not taken root at the same pace as in the past. Weak demand, tight capital and credit markets, and policy uncertainties continue to erode confidence. The CFI solution is one leg of the stool that will help entrepreneurs identify new sources of capital, thus providing optimism and much needed resources for investment and growth.

FundaGeek: Crowdfunding for Technical Innovation and Basic Research

Many excellent technical ideas never become a reality because the odds of obtaining funding from a traditional Angel investor, venture capitalist or lending institution are like hitting the lottery. Going to “friends and family” as sources of seed funding may not be an option for you, and maxing out your credit cards is just a bad idea. So what other options are available?

FundaGeek
is a crowdfunding resource created expressly for technical innovation — we focus on commercial projects based on technology, as well as basic research projects at universities and research institutions. Our site differs from crowdfunding platforms that center on creative projects like music, art and film; at FundaGeek, science and technology reign supreme.
