What this infographic doesn't explain is why one model may be better than another nonprofits might do better with donations, new tech with equity and service business with a reward model.

Also works on DropBox. The Free AlternativeThe interesting question is could you create a web marketing business with NO money for websites or blogs? Yes is the answer to that question. By using free tools such as Google Drive, Scoop.it and Blogger or WordPress you could create a business without paying anything to web development. You might find that business is limited in scale, but so what. Your cost is limited to your sweat equity to create a revenue stream and THEN buy the website improvements you need to go to the next level. I just build a MagentoGo store (Story of Cancer Store: http://storyofcancer.gostorego.com/ ) and the same thing is ALMOST true for Ecom.
Between Storify, Volusion and Magento you can create a store for sweat equity + $500 (give or take). My little store has already made $130 inside of its first month so well on its way to paying for its serving costs. The ultimate lesson of crowdfunding and crowdsourcing is DO NOTHING until it is worth the investment to do so :).
Crowdfunding is on the rise, and Kickstarter is leading the pack. Not only is the trend increasing but, it I’ve noticed that the word “kickstart” has replaced some of the actual terms used when referring to other areas of crowdfunding.
Nonprofits are also looking to crowdfunding -- but it has a dark underbelly as well.
Take a slow turn around these amazing stats and remember these are BEFORE the SEC grants equity for startup funding (should happen next year). Assume the SEC's approval will at least double these numbers, but it will also increase the number of competitors and that is the only reason I'm not suggesting a 10x increase.
