Introducing Equity Crowd Funding - and what this mean for your startup...

This is brand new in Australia, and if you own a startup (or are thinking about starting one) then this will be very exciting for you. But keep your pants on...for now.

Here's what you need to know about Equity Crowd Funding:

1) Unlike non-equity crowd funding, equity crowd funding means that you can now share equity with your micro-investors in exchange for their hard earned cash, instead of giving them something.

2) It's kind of like floating your company on the stock exchange...without all the crazy legislation. There's still some stuff you should be aware of. Click the link to learn more.

3) The risk is carried by the investor, not the startup. So you're in the clear....for the most of it at least.

4) There are very few Equity Crowd Funding websites/platforms available in Australia / New Zealand. So there's a fair bit of opportunity in this space.

5) The Australian government are making a lot of moves (slowly) to help the startup community. Which is great to see.

The tools are there, now you just need to master 'The Art of the Kickstart'... that's a book title!

Please feel free to leave comments, thoughts and ideas.

We also look at startups and businesses that are successfully implementing these technologies.

Please enjoy, leave some feedback and share if you find this useful (as I'm sure you will).

Speed is one of the most important aspects of tech products.

You simply cannot productise slow technology anymore.

The expectation isn’t fast, it’s lightning.

Consult your Developer about speed and ensure they have the right understanding of system architecture to build an app that will give Schumacher a run for his money.
