“Should experience of rewards crowdfunding be a new lending criteria? A successful rewards campaign shows why ‘goodwill’ isn’t intangible; it has real commercial value that can be translated into online sales dollars now and the financial support of loyal customers in the future. In crowdfunding, the trust that you build with your network is your currency. You can turn your social proof, your brand recognition and your goodwill into funding.” Kathleen Minogue, CEO, Crowdfund Better (page 10)

Kathleen Minogue
, founder & CEO of Crowdfund Better, said:

“The future of crowdfunding is niche with more community and less crowd. In the past, niche platforms couldn’t compete with the major players, but as we move from the early crowdfunding adopters to the early crowdfunding majority we are entering new territory. Different types of campaigns require different types of support, and niche platforms that can provide that support will grow strongly alongside the original players.”

Has crowdfunding become a global engine of job creation by seed funding innovation?

January 22, 2016 – Real Business Blog
“This report blows the lid off the picture that the media usually present of crowdfunding as the domain of big tech blockbusters. The data explodes this kind of siloed thinking making it clear that crowdfunding is providing seed and growth funding across a wide reach of industries and geographies – and shows no signs of relenting.
