So you're an entrepreneur! (or you want to be one!)
You have an idea for the next big thing . . . or a product that everyone will want! All that's keeping you back is money to fund your company.
You read the technology press and you've learned about something called CROWDFUNDING. Could that be your solution? Not quite sure what it is? Take a look at the video above courtesy of Crowdsourcing.org. It describes Crowdsourcing - using the skills of a distributed network of people for some purpose - and Crowdfunding is simply using Crowdsourcing as a way to raise money.
You might think Crowdfunding looks easy - you just put up a notice on your company's website looking for investors so that interested investors can find you...and then the checks arrive!
