Crowdfunding is on the Rise in Germany

In the Anglo-American world, crowdfunding is already established as an alternative form of fundraising. Yet in Germany, Austria and Switzerland,  crowdfunding is also increasing its volume. A dozen crowdfunding platforms have been launched to cater to the needs of the German-speaking creative industry and technology start-ups. A survey created by Berlin-based ikosom, the Institute of Communication in Social Media, shows that crowdfunding has left its infant shoes behind.

A Huge Leap Forward for Open Science
Distributed Knowledge

This week’s news that researchers at Cern (European Organization for Nuclear Research) in Switzerland are publishing their results “so other scientists can determine if the approach contains any mistakes” represents a huge leap forward for Open Science.

The science community is traditionally a “closed” community, probably at the insistence of the large pharmaceutical organizations who insist on this as a method of protecting the intellectual property rights on any research they fund.  While there have been moves within the science community to share research online as a means of “crowdsourcing” the work and speeding up discovery, science seems to be way behind other disciplines in actually getting the information out there.

While it makes perfect sense to many researchers to open up research projects for collaboration, the companies that sponsor and fund research laboratories worldwide are keen to keep the lid on research results and new developments due to the immense amounts of money to be made from new drugs, medical procedures and technological/industrial applications.

Crowdfunding: go equity or go home
Crowdfunding

"Crowdfunding: go equity or go home"....okay, so this is not to say that various forms of crowdfunding (e.g. 'pledge', lending, revenue-share) are without valid niches.  Pledge crowdfunding, for example, can be fantastic for various fan-centric projects.  But equity-based crowdfunding is at the center of crowdfunding's future ecosystem for typical high-risk startups. 

This is purely a mathematical reality.  There are a proliferation of crowdfunding platforms emerging, many with investment models destined for niches at best, and the 'dust bin' at worst.  I wanted to give some clarity, as many haven't thought through the macro picture.  Again, this is a discussion aimed at early stage 'angel' style investments in risky startups.

A Logo for Human Rights: A global crowdsourcing initiative

We don’t need words to understand the message behind the most well known iconic symbols, but there is no globally recognized logo for human rights.

A group of states, dedicated designers and human rights defenders have joined their forces to close this gap believing that a shared symbol for all those united in the struggle for human rights will strengthen the message and the movement on a global level.

Le Kickstarter: Crowdfunding the French way!
Crowdfunding

There’s a lot happening in the French crowdfunding industry. Recent announcements have included KissKissBankBank partnering with the French Post as their official fundraising and artist discovery platform and Ulule who have just launched a new feature, a presale option supporting products coming to market once they have raised the required level of capital. I was really keen to understand more about how the crowdfunding industry is developing in general, and in particularly, how it’s doing in France. I got in touch with ten founders of crowdfunding platforms to learn what I could. In all, I spoke to: Smiti Arbia from carnetdemode.com, Nicolas Bailly de touscoprod, Alexandre Boucherot d’Ulule, Hortense Garand from babeldoor.com, Michael Goldman from MyMajorCompany, Nicolas Guillaume from Friendsclear, Angel Ramos de revenonsalamusique.com, Vincent Ricordeau from KissKissBankBank, and Yannick Robert from Mywittygames.com. In a series of three articles, I am going to look at different aspects of the topic. In this first part of a three article series, I look at what makes France different?


My count reached twenty-nine crowdfunding platforms currently operating in the French market, and there are probably more I’m unaware of. This is not to say the country is experiencing an extraordinary phenomena: crowdfunding is booming in Europe and across the world. Who hasn’t heard of Kickstarter’s success? Kickstarter can proud of having reached the dizzy heights of now raising in the order of a US$1m a week, all in less than 2 years in business, for new business ventures and special cause projects. One of their projects, the tiktok lunatik iPod Nano watch holder raising close to $1m alone. In Europe, France among other countries has not yet reached the point of such growth. Why is that?
