Crowdfunding: What it means for North Texas businesses - Dallas Business Journal

Those creators can also solicit donations from their fans. To start with, selected channels in the US, Mexico, Japan and Australia can apply to be among the first to test the system out. The ability for fans to chip in and support creators allows YouTube to keep those creators from heading elsewhere to propose and collect money for new projects. Instead of launching on to crowdfunding sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo, they will stay within the YouTube service and seek backing there. Other new features include added expanded stock music and sound effects, improved annotations, and subtitles submitted by viewers. Creators can take charge of their channels when they're on the go with a new Android app, YouTube Creator Studio . <br>visit

iFind Supports Kickstarter's Decision to Ban Their Crowdfunding Campaign | Crowdfund Insider

Patreon recently announced its first significant round of venture funding. The $15-million Series A round is by way of 17 angel investors and venture capitalists. The investment deal seems to match well with its creator-centric model. Conte said Patreon had more offers from other investors but chose to stick with certain people who gave them more favorable terms. We got, for instance, 2-1 voting rights on the board, which is very unusual for a Series A funding round," he said. <br>visit

There have been multiple high profile campaigns offering this type of hardware with most being legitimate. iFind struggled to find validation and lost their way (pun intended) as claims were made that the device operated battery free using patent pending technologies simply did not stack up. The company that launched iFind, WeTag, is allegedly operated by an individual named Dr. Paul McArthur who explained away his online non-existence due to the fact his identity was once stolen stating; Some people have wondered why I do not have a robust presence online. Well, unfortunately, my identity was once stolen. And when that happens, you think twice about posting anything online. <br>visit

Crowdfunding site Patreon aims to help artists actually make a living - Los Angeles Times

Kevin Vela , partner at Vela Keller PC law firm in Dallas, recently told guests at the International Video Game Summit about the new form of fundraising that only has been enacted in eight states so far. With our economy, this is an outstanding opportunity for Texas and for North Texas to take advantage, Vela said. The first major opportunity is going to come in the form of the crowdfunding platform for which the area adopts, as companies and investors must used a Texas-based portal to avoid federal regulations. The portal will allow entrepreneurs to solicit and receive funds from investors much like Kickstarter or Indiegogo, except that companies will receive investments instead of donations. The next opportunity is for the local business community. For local business, crowdfunding is going to be an absolute boom, Vela said, adding that most likely it will be young, tech-savvy entrepreneurs who take advantage of the new form of fundraising. After startups find their platform, the crowdfunding can begin. Heres how it works: Startups will be able to raise up to $1 million from unaccredited investors, meaning anyone, via the crowdfunding platform. Startups will have to go through a few steps to verify that they understand the financial risk associated with the fundraising, and theyll have to meet certain reporting requirements based on the raise, Vela said. <br>visit

U.S. losing tech talent to Canada - Jul. 30, 2014

"The U.S. has adopted a restrictive approach toward visas," explained Isabelle Marcus, founder of Columbus Consulting Group . "It's quite detrimental to U.S. businesses looking to hire young, talented people with skills that are needed in the U.S." Advocates of immigration reform have pushed a startup visa, which would allow founders like Eunni to legally stay in the U.S. <br>visit

New crowdfunding records have been set and broken in succession when North Texas Giving Day in September 2013 raised $25.2 M, #GivingTuesday in December 2013 raised approximately $32 M and Give Local America! in May 2014 raised $53.7 M. These events are proven to recruit new donors and new dollars year over year. For example, in 2013 during its fourth annual event, New Haven Community Foundation raised 126% more revenue than the year before and reported that 45% of donors were first-time donors to a participating nonprofit. In its second annual event, Columbia University raised a record-breaking $7.8M in October 2013, attracting nearly double the number of donors from the year before and raising 115% more than in 2012. Per Charity Navigator, total giving to charitable organizations in 2013 was up 4.4% from 2012, so crowdfunding events are definitely outpacing other types of campaigns. Successful single-day crowdfunding events are a result of planning, preparation, excitement, execution, the right technology, and leveraging the multiplying effect of the Internet via social media and peer-to-peer fundraising.

The structure of a foam, the heat can spread over an enormous area. To the very hot regions inside the metal foam, the air is heated more than in the outer regions. The air expands due to the heat in the inner stronger and is pressed automatically to the outside. This creates its own micro-circulation, which dissipates the heat more efficiently. A fan as cooling is no longer necessary. Moreover, the heat is distributed on an up to 500-fold greater surface area. Composition of microcirculation and an extraordinarily large heatsink surface make the use of more powerful hardware [possible]."

Crowdfunding Can Be Really Effective -- If You Know What You're

Great Crowdfunding Sites to Help Make an Idea Into a Business - Small Business Voices - Huntington, NY Patch

Nearly every successful campaign has about 30 percent of its crowdfunding goal committed through family, friends and a network of close connections before it'slaunched. Without that initial boost of donations hitting a campaign early, the success rate is very low. The overwhelming majority of successful campaigns that raise significant funds involve products that are preordered. Don't try to compare preselling a cool iPhone gadget on Indiegogo with raising money to start an orange juice stand. It's like comparingapples and oranges, pun intended. If you are not preselling a product, do not expect to raise more than $10,000 through rewards-based crowdfunding. Related: 8 Ways to Make Your Crowdfunding Campaign Pop Be prepared to have a second full-time job during the campaign's30 to 60 days. The campaign will require your constantly being on the phone and promoting online, looking for supporters, dealing with questions, reaching out to the media, fulfilling rewards and handling social media.Imagine how much workit will be, then triple that. The good news is, when it works, significant amounts of money can be raised. The process can net low-cost publicity and buzz for a product or business. <br>visit

Crowdfunding helps some couples afford costly fertility treatments | Fox News

This controversy began when Double Fine Tim Schafer's company raised over 3 million dollars for a game dubbed Double Fine Adventure. However, later it was reported that Double Fine Adventure now Broken Age had run out of funds despite it raising way over its asking price. Schafer then said that the reason for this problem was Even though we received much more money from our Kickstarter than we, or anybody anticipated, that didnt stop me from getting excited and designing a game so big that it would need even more money, Schafer writes in a letter to backers posted at Gamasutra. His solution to this shortage of funds was to release the first half of the game in January and charge for it as a Steam Early Access product to raise funds to finish the second half of the game the following summer. To me it's completely irresponsible to run out of money because your imagination got ahead of it and then sell half the game to raise funds. However, I truly lost my patience with kickstarter when Harmonix launched their Amplitude campaign. <br>visit

$1 Million Limit Crowdfunding. Another type of crowdfunding is based on a law that permits equity or debt offerings of not more than $1 million through funding portals, envisioned as web sites that match investors to investments. The good news is that this type of crowdfunding is exempt from registration with the SEC, but the law actually makes this type of crowdfunding a chimera because it adds so many hurdles and restrictions that it makes this type of crowdfunding cost more than the money raised. Because of these restrictions, very few brave souls have attempted this type of crowdfunding. Aggregator Web Sites. A third type of crowdfunding, which is gaining popularity, is based on a recent law that permits equity or debt offerings that accept only accredited investors to be advertised (which was prohibited before 2013). The film company has to obtain verification that all the investors it accepts are accredited investors, which includes: A natural person whose net worth (together with his or her spouse, if any) exceeds $1,000,000 at the time of the purchase (excluding the investors principal residence); A natural person who had an individual income in excess of $200,000 (or $300,000 if married) in each of the two most recent years, and who reasonably expects an income in excess of that amount in the current year; and An entity that has over $5 million of gross assets that was not formed for the specific purpose of making the one investment. These offerings can now be publicly advertised on a website, either one put up by the film company or, more commonly, by one that aggregates offerings and acts as a marketplace for companies and investors to meet, such as for film offerings. Previously, these type of aggregator websites had to register as broker-dealers, but the recent law that permits advertising also permits web sites to avoid registration as long as a couple of requirements are met: First, the web site must either not receive or pay any compensation in connection with the sale of listed investments. Second, the web site cannot have possession of customer funds or investments. If these requirements are met, the web site may provide ancillary services, such as (a) the provision of due diligence services, so long as such services do not include, for separate compensation, investment advice or recommendations to the film companies or investors; and (b) the provision of standardized documents to the film companies and investors, so long as the web site does not negotiate the terms of the issuance for and on behalf of third parties, and so long as the film companies are not required to use the standardized documents as a condition of using the service. <br>visit

We started looking into the site, and found that people were saying great things about it. We realizedyoure not forcing anyone to do anything, Williams, a former teacher, told So I sat down and wrote out our story, put it out there and gosh, it just blew up. The couple offered incentives to donors, such as offering to name benefactors as honorary godparents to their future child or guaranteeing to send photos every month for the childs first year of life. Within ten short weeks, the couple had successfully raised the $20,000 they needed to start their next round of IVF. Thanks to their crowdfunding efforts, Williams is now five months pregnant and determined to pay out those incentives. Its a big task but were going to go back and compile a spreadsheet of everyone who donated, and were going to put that together and send them the incentives. <br>visit
