Will Equity Crowdfunding Help Your Business Soar?

Access to capital is the main reason people pursue equity crowdfunding. Equity crowdfunding is especially appealing to entrepreneurs because it offers an alternative to seeking cash from banks or angel investors. Plus, a successful crowdfunding campaign can have other benefits, including generating buzz for a business, helping to gauge support for a product or idea, establishing a brand, and connecting with potential customers.

+VerifyInvestor.com great post. The insight that was in that post was terrific and spot-on. Crowdfunding is a great marketing and funding tool for businesses, but it is not for every business, and as people become more aware of this fact I think the percentages of successes will increase and the correct companies will use crowdfunding.

Crowdfunding to make potato salad?  While it may sound ridiculous, one successful campaign (nearing $40,000) is spawning copycats.  This article on +Mashable  by +Seth Fiegerman  delivers the delicious details.  Do these campaigns detract from the importance of crowdfunding, or does it confirm that the potential for crowdfunding continues to grow?

Hey i'm brand new here, and have a question about kickstarter i could'nt find an answer to... Can you "fund" your own projects? As in, if you see that your $2000 short on your $20 000 project with an hour to go, can you just send in the money yourself, taking the 5% hit?

Why don't you just use a platform that will let you keep what you collect or charges a one time fee?
