The Crowdfunder – an “adVenture Capitalist”
Crowdfunding, Distributed Knowledge, Tools

Last week’s blogpost “Equity or Debt?” the Next step in Crowdfunding highlighted the three fundamental forms of crowdfunding platforms: 


  1. Crowdfunding as a method for sponsorship with a non-financial return 
  2. Debt-crowdfunding with a financial return (P2P-lending) 
  3. Equity based crowdfunding with a potential financial return and ownership
 
Whether you are a crowdfunder, an adVenture Capitalist, or if you have an initiative or you are an entrepreneur looking to raise money, it’s critical to have a good understanding of the models and the different types of initiatives they can support.

The case for and against crowdsourcing (part 2)

In the first part of this article I described which types of crowdsourcing currently exist and the benefits of crowdsourcing. In part two, I now explore some of the drawbacks of crowdsourcing.

 

There are a number of key issues to consider when conducting a crowdsourcing project that have the potential to materially impact the outcome. The potential drawbacks of crowdsourcing often stem from the fact that in crowdsourcing initiatives, online volunteers instead of companies own staff members are executing the work. The use of ‘outside’ workers can present some challenges which I'm going to explore accross the following areas to highlight the potential drawbacks of working with crowds.

Crowdfunding: Safety in Numbers!
Crowdfunding

Recent cases of Initial Public Offering’s (IPO’s) of Micro Financial Institutions  (MFI’s) have rewarded investors at the expense of borrowers. Post IPO, interest rates have been driven to exorbitant levels thereby compromising the mission of MFI’s to engage in financial lending to smaller borrowers that have a stated social aim of helping to alleviate poverty being compromised. Is the concept of an IPO for an MFI irreparably damaging to the interests of borrowers and does crowdfunding offer an alternative approach that could allow MFIs to get larger and at the same time protect their clients from high interest rates exposure?

Do employee Management Principles Apply to Crowdsourcing?
Distributed Knowledge, Tools

Is crowdourcing scalable? Yes. Powerful enabler of a successful business if developed the right way, absolutely! Awesome pool of cheap labor? Not so much. My guess is that anyone working in a (successful) business that is designed around or at least is heavily reliant upon crowdsourcing, feels that the crowd isn’t cheap labor. On a practical basis this sentiment is easily evolved into the well-intentioned mantra you can hear echoing through the halls here at Trada, “the crowd doesn’t work for us… don’t ever treat   them like they do!  We work for them!”
