Crowdfunding of Small Entrepreneurial Ventures

It has been argued that funding was particularly difficult to obtain for small businesses in respect of their size and lack of available historical data creating information asymmetry for potential investors. Hence, traditional financing methods like bank loans, business angels or VCs are out of reach for these small companies. Moreover, bootstrapping does not allow businesses to grow fast due to its focus on cash generation, often at the expense of maximizing value creation. As a result, crowdfunding can become a viable fundraising method obtainable for small entrepreneurial companies or project-based initiatives.

2013CF-The Crowdfunding Industry Report
CrowdfundingIndustry-focused Research

This report sets a new standard for comprehensive, reality-based assessment of the crowdfunding industry, based on data gathered from 308 funding platforms worldwide and analysis from massolution's industry-leading brain trust. Like the widely-cited 2012 report, it digs deep and does the math to show who is crowdfunding what, where, how, and when - and what will happen next. But unlike its predecessor, this report also includes three original research chapters by top academics in the field: an analysis of crowdfunding dynamics and how it can be applied to generate viral “third-level acceleration” from the differing motivations of strong-tie vs weak-tie friends; a detailed, 15-country overview of the legal frameworks that surround crowdfunding worldwide, including relevant laws, government agencies, and possible reforms; and an analysis of direct crowdfunding, which questions the very need for platforms for non-investment funding models.

In addition to providing a practical, quantitative understanding of crowdfunding today and a high level synthesis of how its recent innovations will play out in the future, this report also includes surprising insights that can only come out of detailed research. For example, you'll learn which crowdfunding model (donation, reward, lending, equity, or royalty) has had a much better record of reaching its funding goals than all the others, how social vs. environmental raises differ widely, and how the financing of crowdfunding platform startups does not reflect the crowdfunding models they support.

“Equity or Debt?” The Next Step in Crowdfunding

With the rise of Crowdfunding platforms all over the world, it seems valuable to take a closer look at the future of the industry and the way Crowdfunding can contribute to a healthy entrepreneurial climate. In my opinion it all comes down to what all these platforms actually deliver to project owners or nascent entrepreneurs.

The Fraud Bogeyman of Crowdfunding

Every change in a system encounters resistance, especially those changes which make the most sense. In our new information economy, where value is derived from the richness of our networks and the novel ways in which we find to organize information and connections, a matching capital formation mechanism makes sense. So it is no surprise that crowdfunding, an organic response to service capital needs within our new economy, is growing exponentially. And it's quite anticipated that it should meet resistance.?

The resistance to crowdfunding comes in the form of the "fraud bogeyman." Apparently, this phantom stalks only unregistered investments, waiting to emerge from the shadows and steal all of our money. Of course, fear is a potent tool (for better or for worse), and wherever it's sold, one can usually quickly find a lack of real arguments. For example, inherent in a fraudster's ability to steal all of our money via crowdfunding, is someone who invests all of his or her money in one business. And yet, I cannot find a single person who thinks that doing so is a good idea. (If you find such a mythical person, please have them write a blog post about it, and forward me a link!)


The fraud bogeyman has been appearing in a number of places recently, including big media sites and small blogs alike. The number of concurrent mentions of the words 'portfolio' or 'diversification' in the same articles ... ZERO. As usual, fear, uncertainty and doubt are delivered in a vacuum, without any relativity or context. How does anyone lose all of their money on fraud when they're diversified? That's an inconvenient question, of course.
