As long as stock or equity in a company isn't being offered, crowdfunding is a quite viable method for raising funds.
Nome, Alaska (PRWEB) July 23, 2012
Crowdfunding is raising millions of dollars right now for savvy project owners. Nearly $2 billion dollars was appropriated by crowdfunding campaigns last year. Three billion dollars is expected to be raised using crowdfunding platforms this year.
With this in mind, Conzortia Business Funding, Inc., a leader in the crowdfunding market, is launching a suite of websites designed to assist with area residents' crowdfunding needs. This week they have launched a site targeting Alaska residents.
"Crowdfunding is being used creatively right now to help individuals and businesses achieve their capital goals", declares Robert Dobyns, CEO of Conzortia. "As long as stock or equity in a company isn't being offered, crowdfunding is a quite viable method for raising funds."
The JOBS Act, passed in April, requires a waiting period before equity-based crowdfunding can be utilized. Companies, individuals and organizations in Alaska who can look at their capital needs and figure out creative ways to offer non-equity perks to their funders can have very successful fundraising campaigns. A recent video game campaign raised over $3.3 million via crowd funding. A comic book re-print offer secured over $1.25 million in crowdfunding revenue. And the list goes on and on for those raising multiple thousands of dollars today with successful crowdfunding projects.
"Crowdfunding takes strategic planning and skillful execution to succeed", Dobyns said. "Plan and work the plan... That's what makes for a successful venture. And Conzortia is here to help with that execution."
