Anna B. Scott's insight:

A significant compnent of crowdfunding is the psychology of the giver. I know of a very successful campaign for a heart transplant for an African American where a number of would-be backers just assumed that the candidate was milking the government for the heart, and not your avergae insured American who has run out of coverage.  We'll see how this goes for businesses.
