I initially took exception to the flurry of messages, in LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter that I received recently. My reaction, shared on my blog in “Connect.me Cons Me” http://osakabentures.com/2011/11/connect-me-cons-me/ got a big "convo" going, though!

Many thanks, Paul - and welcome to suggest for my Scoopits, especially "Blog Promotion." (You just need to follow that topic in ScoopIt to connect with me). Also, thanks to your lovely wife for accepting my Dynamic Tribe tweet in Triberr.

Don't just Scoopit (to your own) - "Poop" it on others! That's my motto.

Crowdsourcing Your Startup Portfolio: 6 Crowdfunding Experts Weigh In

Crowdsourcing Your Startup Portfolio: 6 Crowdfunding Experts Weigh In | Crowdfunding | Scoop.it

Equity crowdfunding not only gives people access to one of the hottest asset classes — startups — but it does so by inserting an added level of transparency and interactivity. Sitting in the office or at home, an interested person with little experience investing in private companies can now identify, research, and invest in deals that were solely the purview of closed-door, clubby meetings. Equity crowdfunding enables people to crowdsource their investment ideas by piggybacking on what the top angel investors are doing with their money. By tracking and following their moves, new investors can build a diversified portfolio of high-quality startups.

The Crowdfunding Conundrum

The Crowdfunding Conundrum | Crowdfunding | Scoop.it

By Glen Martin There is widespread consensus that crowdfunding is a boon, an egalitarian means for bringing products and services to market without relying on banks, venture capitalists, or established financial angels. Myriad platforms now allow entrepreneurs and folks with a little (or a lot) of cash to get together without the red tape and angst that so often accompanies the soliciting and procuring of startup funds.

But that doesn’t mean crowdfunding is a panacea. In fact, observes Scott Miller, CEO and co-founder of Dragon Innovation, Inc., crowdfunding platforms have an Achilles heel: an inability to deliver hardware.

“Over the past year or 18 months, we’ve seen a pretty disturbing trend in crowdfunding,” Miller says. “A lot of campaigns meet their thresholds, but they ultimately don’t deliver the goods. That’s usually not due to fraud — it’s largely because many of the people who launch these nascent companies don’t understand hardware.

The rise of crowdfunding: 10 things to know

The rise of crowdfunding: 10 things to know | Crowdfunding | Scoop.it
Crowdfunding platforms are changing the way we finance projects and services, but the laws surrounding them are still ambiguous. Here are 10 facts to get you up to speed.

Crowdfunding is a tool that allows anyone -- be it startup founders, musicians, artists, students, children, or even someone in a developing country who lacks basic electricity -- to attract a pool of people via the internet to invest in their business idea. A funding target is established, and rewards to backers are offered.This new type of startup business model has the opportunity to disrupt industries and change the way we determine success and let the best ideas flourish, rather than the best access to capital. It's exciting, because the venture capital model that powers Silicon Valley and the global startup scene is inherently biased based on geography and connections. According to the Small Business Administration, about 600,000 new businesses are started in the US every year. The number of startups funded by VCs? 300. That means 99.95% of entrepreneurs won't get funded.To affect real change, we have to understand the basics: what defines crowdfunding, how it works best, and how the current laws shape what's possible. We also need to look at the ways the law is changing and what it means for the future of crowdfunding.Here is a list of the 10 most important things to know about this important new buzzword.

After three years of rapid growth, equity investment, peer-to-peer lending and invoice trading via crowdfunding sites are now established as serious options for startups and small businesses in search of finance. But as more money pours through a growing range of online platforms and into the bank accounts of young and often high risk companies, questions of investor protection have come to the fore.

Need to start or grow your business? Crowdfunding is an attractive alternative to traditional funding. Take it from music legend Neil Young who blew away his crowdfunding goal of $2.4 million in just one day! Sure, star power was likely what kicked this Kickstarter up a notch so quickly, but crowdfunding is hot – and continues to make positive impacts to the entrepreneurial ecosystem.

Crowdfunding has, in a very short time, revolutionized the way startups fund projects, but it’s not a magic bullet. The key to success, no matter where you seek funding, is directly linked to the amount of work you put into your idea – and that happens long before you launch your campaign. Ask all the right questions when you’re working on your plan. What problem does my product or service solve? Who will care about it? How much money do I need today to fund my project?

The Intelligence Community Crowdsources Ideas. Maybe You Should Too

The Intelligence Community Crowdsources Ideas. Maybe You Should Too | Crowdfunding | Scoop.it
U.S. intelligence groups are finding that crowdsourcing can provide remarkably accurate predictions. Learn from them to create your own secret weapon.

It's not easy to be an analyst for the Central Intelligence Agency. As the CIA says, these positions are filled by "some of the brightest people in the country" who bring "integrity and objectivity" to the work of evaluating information of all types from around the world. The agency lists 13 different types of analysts whose combined work with top secret information is supposed to illuminate what will happen so the U.S. can more intelligently plan strategy.

But it turns out that 3,000 regular people have been predicting world events as well as part of the Good Judgment Project (GJP), run by three psychologists with the backing of the U.S. Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity program.

Their predictions are often better than those oh so bright people with access to the latest in secret intelligence, even though the regular folk just use what they find on the Internet. According to NPR, one of the top is Elaine Rich, a 60-year-old pharmacist with no background in international affairs and little formal math training. Rich is one of the projects "superforecasters," whose work is 30 percent better than the professional analysts.

You're probably not looking to join the intelligence community, but there are some great lessons for entrepreneurs in this story about crowdsourcing.

Language used in crowdfunding campaigns can predict success, failure | Crowdfunding | Scoop.it

In the growing phenomenon of online crowdfunding the language used hold surprisingly predictive power about the success of such campaigns, U.S. researchers say.A study at Georgia Tech of more than 45,000 projects on crowdfunding site Kickstarter reveals dozens of phrases that pay and a few dozen more that may signal the likely failure of a crowd-sourced effort, the school reported Tuesday."Our research revealed that the phrases used in successful Kickstarter campaigns exhibited general persuasion principles," said Eric Gilbert, who runs the school's Computer Social Lab. "For example, those campaigns that follow the concept of reciprocity -- that is, offer a gift in return for a pledge -- and the perceptions of social participation and authority, generated the greatest amount of funding."
