Crowdfunding's Disruptive DNA: The Why, How and Who

Crowdfunding's Disruptive DNA: The Why, How and Who | Startups | Scoop.it
Investment crowdfunding is going to disrupt and re-shape early stage capital markets. But not only for the reasons you’ve likely heard. There’s more to it. Crowdfunding is the product of not one, but two, strands of disruptive DNA.

It's definitely evolving this way. Crowdfunding is internet based and has caused many paradigms to change or bust already. Good read.

Startup Funding: The Fund-Raising Game Has Changed - 7 Ways To Raise Money For Your Business In 2012

Startup Funding: The Fund-Raising Game Has Changed - 7 Ways To Raise Money For Your Business In 2012 | Startups | Scoop.it

From the article intro: "Startup funds will be harder to come by in 2012, according to hundreds of venture capitalists polled in a recent survey by the National Venture Capital Association.

 

...

 

In spite of the gloomy funding forecasts, there's still hope for entrepreneurs in need of cash in 2012.

 

In fact, small-business financing options outside the venture capital industry are rapidly proliferating in the digital age.

 

With just a few clicks, anyone can pitch a business idea to the growing ranks of angel investors.

 

In addition, a number of Web services now provide platforms for entrepreneurs to raise small sums of money from large pools of people -- a process known as crowdfunding.

 

Even Congress is showing deference toward the Internet's capacity to connect businesses with capital, as lawmakers weigh rule-changes that would allow entrepreneurs to use social networks to sell stakes in their startups. (Under current securities law, entrepreneurs can only solicit donations.)

 

Still, a large share of startup funds continues to flow from the old-fashioned lender that small-business owners love to hate: banks.

 

...


So regardless of whether you run a tech startup on the hunt for strategic Silicon Valley investors or you own a local restaurant that's in need of nothing more than a simple bank loan, entrepreneurs must recognize that in the new year, the fund-raising game has changed."

 

Here are the new ways to raise in 2012:

1. Banks

2. Crowdfunding

3. Contest and Accelerator Programs

4. Online Pawn Shops

5. Friends and Family

6. Angel List

7. Revenue-Based Financing
