Crowdfund Site Taps Star Power | Los Angeles Business Journal

FundAnything hopes celebrity campaigns will help it stand out from the crowdfunding competition.
Travis Moore's insight:

I'm skeptical about this firm.  When I give to crowdfunding campaigns it's because of a personal connection-- I belive in the idea or cause, or it's in my community, and I related to it in a personal way.  

 

The real currency of crowdfunding, it seemes to me, like other platforms or organizations in the collaborative economy, is trust.  Trust requires authenticity, and I think it'll be hard for a celebrity endorsement to delivery that.
