Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Crowdfunding = Biggest, Best Online Contest / Game
Tubestart just made it easier to connect a streaming event to a crowdfunding campaign. That idea could significantly help the key 1st week when we know campaigns with 25% in are 80% likely to be successful. Cool addition.

The other reason this could be a cool addition, one that may make TubeStart better for many companies than Kickstarter or IndieGoGo, is we know 80% of successful crowdfunding funds come from the sponsoring entrepreneur's network.

Since MOST of the money comes from YOU anyway crowdfunding is a movable feast. You should use the tool that fits you and your campaign best. The ability to easily add a streaming events puts https://www.tubestart.com/  ahead of the pack.
