The growing software developer has embarked on a strategy to buy up  and integrate the world's most powerful crowdfunding tools on the WordPress platform in order to build best-of-breed fundraising...
Robert Hoskins's insight:

Apollo Beach, Florida – IgnitionDeck, Inc. announced that it has acquired two of the most popular and powerful tools that offer customers a  no-commission-fee crowdfunding platform. Fundify was purchased from Astoundify and CrowdPress was purchased from BoxyStudio. These assets position IgnitionDeck as a powerful force in the crowdfunding industry and gives the company a dominant position within one of the leading online publishing platforms, WordPress, which accounts for more than 60 million websites worldwide.


IgnitionDeck’s No-Commission-Fee crowdfunding tools let fundraisers host their own donation pages, keep all of the money that they raise, and control their relationship with users. Self-hosted campaigns offer a professional-looking and money-saving alternative to sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo, which charge commissions on all funds raised, limit fundraising time periods, impose their own branding, and control the communications between fundraisers and donors.

Robert Hoskins's insight:

Indianapolis, IN - In 2013, LiveLink raised $1 million from local Indiana angel investors through traditional techniques. As a result, Mike Alley, chairman of Patriot Investments, joined the board along with Bob O’Brien from Cambridge Ventures. The capital allowed LiveLink to acquire another software development firm (Cogent Media Group), make several key hires and to build out a mobile solution that helps sales professionals find more opportunities through email marketing, social media, VAR channel marketing programs andenables sales to create the sales & marketing content they need to close deals.


In 2014, LiveLink has turned to Localstake to raise an additional $500,000 to further prove its model and to make additional technology enhancements to its mobile solution. Localstake works with many types of companies ranging from breweries to software companies like LiveLink.

 

“We are $100K toward our $500K goal and expect the remaining amount to come in through the next several weeks,” said Jason Zickler, CEO and founder of LiveLink. “Localstake has the functionality for us to more effectively reach out via our online and offline networks to find investors that were previously very difficult to connect with.”

Robert Hoskins's insight:

Houston, Texas - Kickercon announced the final lineup for its all-encompassing Crowdfunding Conference & Expo that will provide crowdfunding educational seminars, boot camps and networking event that will be held in Houston at the Hilton Americas-Houston from Thursday, August 28th to Saturday, August 30th.


The event, which caters to entrepreneurs, investors and students, captures the state’s “everything is bigger in Texas” personality, as it features five dynamic workshops and more than 50 speakers, in the three-day expo.

 

“What initially started as a fad, crowdfunding has become the status quo in the pursuit of securing equity in the growing startup culture,” said Terell Jones, Director, Kickercon. “In order to support the burgeoning entrepreneur community, Kickercon is establishing itself as the go-to national event for those interested in educating themselves on all-thing crowdfunding.”

 

No matter what industry your idea falls into, Kickercon has a speaker for you. The speaker lineup includes Indiegogo experts, Nathan Jones of ABC’s “Shark Tank,” crowdfunding success stories such as Misfit Wearables, numerous venture capitalist firms and investors, and even Forbes reporter Mark Fidelman, who will be moderating the

“Social Media & Marketing Training” session.

 

Registration is now open to the public with general registration for the three-day expo starting at $399.99, available at Kickercon.com. Through the month of July, attendees can receive up to 20 percent off the price of a ticket with the coupon code Kicker20.

Funderbuilt Leads the Growing Crowdfunding Industry by Capping Platform Commission Fees at a Maximum Fee of $250

Funderbuilt Leads the Growing Crowdfunding Industry by Capping Platform Commission Fees at a Maximum Fee of $250 | Crowdfunding Campaigns | Scoop.it
The portal provides campaign managers with several unique tools including FunderFactor, Funderbuilt Toolbox and a Crowdfunding Campaign To-Do List By Robert Hoskins Southfield, Michigan - Funderbui...
Robert Hoskins's insight:

Southfield, Michigan - Funderbuilt officially launched on July 4th to service all types of fundraising needs and models, including donations to charitable causes, reward-based contributions to creative and business endeavors, and equity-based investments in new businesses and products. Providing “simply successful crowdfunding,” Funderbuilt makes it easy for project owners to connect with donors, contributors and investors who will help them fund their dreams.


Funderbuilt is perfectly suited to ALL KINDS of fundraising projects, so there’s no need to choose between multiple platforms. Projects are grouped into 3 categories – Causes, Ideasand Ventures — and just about any project falls into one of these 3 buckets.


While most crowdfunding platforms take a percentage of a project owner’s raised funds with no upper limit, Funderbuilt’s fee is never more than $250, so project owners keep more of the money they raise (Funderbuilt keeps 5% of the funding goal or $250, whichever is less). With lower fees, flexible funding models and easy to manage tools for success, Funderbuilt is designed to help projects succeed and gives project owners the best possible chance of reaching their funding goals.

 

The portal also provides what’s called a FunderFactor, a quick and easy way to gauge a project’s progress and the efforts of the project owner. Once a project is launched, the portal recommends that users utilize the Funderbuilt Toolbox and To-Do list to continue building support for their project.
