51) YOUR NAME HERE (contact us at http://www.realitycrowdtv.com)

The purpose of the hangout is to offer those interested in getting a basic understanding of what crowdfunding is an opportunity to review various tools, tips, and strategies, as well as get educated on the crowdfunding process.  Questions can be around the 9 stages of crowdfunding that every campaign must go through:

1)  Business Planning
2)  Intellectual Property
3)  Social Media
4)  Public Relations
5)  Campaign Strategy
6)  Networking & Team Building
7)  Website Development
8)  Profile & Video
9)  Fulfillment

We decided this was necessary because ultimately there is only so much time we have to offer hands on help to people and many people are just now being introduced to crowdfunding and it wouldn't make sense for someone to go out and spend a lot of money on consultants until you have a clear understanding of all aspects of crowdfunding.

The fact of the matter is, you can delegate authority to others but you should never delegate responsibility.  It is your responsibility as a project creator to ensure that you know as much as possible so that you never get taken advantage of by consultants (Ask us how we know :(.)

Thank you for allowing us to help you in this small way.  If we had more man power, we would be able to assist more on a hands on basis.

Contact Reality Crowd TV

If you have education tools that you would like to share with us that may benefit those in the crowdfunding industry, please contact us:  http://www.realitycrowdtv.com
This Hangout On Air is hosted by RealityCrowdTV. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

If you don't think extinction is possible, consider Brasil:
"With massive importation of poor white farmers from Europe in the second half of the 19 century, and a structured violence against the Black people, Brazil successfully diluted the presence of the Black people with a “whitening of the population” program. Black people are now only 8%, with lowest birth rate and demographic growth over the past 150 years."
If you think democracy is stronger than propaganda, then you'll have to think again. If you think the rule of majority is what makes democracy, then listen to the case of Brazil as below. The population of Brazil is made of a majority of Black and Metis (52%) and some other yellow and indigenous minorities (2 to 3%), but in the Brazilian parliament 90% of the elected members are white and only 1 in 10 (10%) Black and Metis people, while Brazil is...

Let's build an internet based Content Studio to propagate Three dimensional images and stories from the African Diaspora. We can do it with crowdfunding. 50,000 activists willing to chip in $5, $10 on a show that they identify with, think about it! It could be the end of sitcoms like, "Black-ish"

I used to say: If you don't have the cure to the common cold, then Africa really doesn't need you. If you need a job, stay in America. 

"If you are not a successful returnee (which means you don’t have a minimum of 100 000 dollars in disposable money), then your return here will be tough. ... The time of “small thing” is over. Everyone prays God, but the real king in town is Money, Big Money! It’s the ONLY thing people really Respect. You can keep your patriotism, panafricanism or activism for yourself ... If you are a returnee who have to compete with locals for job, business or attention, you’ll face an unspoken resentment of  returnees, which will translate into many forms of ostracism or rejection."
Africans in diaspora must understand that a Lizard in US or UK can not suddenly become an Alligator in Nigeria or Kenya, just because their plane have just landed from NY or London! The myth of the returnee is slowly dying. Competition is tough, and no one is expecting you, unless you have cash to flush. If you are not a successful returnee (which means you don't have a minimum of 100 000 dollars in disposable money), then your return here will b...

The Next Iteration of Human Existence, is faster, stronger and smarter. The Singularity has arrived.
First, Google acquired a startup called DNNresearch, snapping up some of the world’s foremost experts in a burgeoning field of artificial intelligence known as deep learning. Then it shelled out $400 million for a secretive deep learning startup called DeepMind. Much like Facebook, Microsoft, and others, Google sees deep learning as the future of AI…

Folks, this is an industry in it's beginning stages. Get in now, before you need a degree to be legit.
 
"...A colorful ecosystem is evolving around the investment crowdfunding industry. Companies are developing products and services to alleviate nearly every conceivable pain point of the system’s stakeholders, including businesses (supply), platforms (infrastructure) and investors (demand)."

And those money people, "Angels", talk about funding the best ideas by the best people, and for the most part, they are consistently looking for the "best". However, there are a lot of projects in the "best and brightest category" that get discounted by White and White-like money people: Black entrepreneurs with Black projects.

Very comfortable place to sit, think, and get some work done ... the coffee is the BOMB, and if you're looking for a good place to hang out and get communal, the atmosphere is perfect and they have the best looking crop of grown women just coming through and hanging out that I've seen in this little town.
