If you restore market structure, you restore American prosperity.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) September 13, 2012
On September 11, 2012, co-hosts Stone Payton and Lee Kantor welcomed to the studio Dara Albright with NowStreet Media. Albright appeared on Business RadioX™'s High Velocity Radio to discuss and explain crowdfunding.
Dara Albright is the Founder of NowStreet Media, a leader in financial markets’ reform. Dara is a thought provoker and frequent speaker on topics relating to the private markets and crowdfunding. NowStreet is known in financial circles as a group who helps repair market structure. Says Albright, "If you restore market structure, you restore American prosperity." Albright believes this will transform entrepreneurism.
This new way of building business is called crowdfunding - essentially, pooling capital from a large group of people or a crowd who shares a particular interest. Crowdfunding began in the arts and entertainment world, but has quickly evolved into products and services as a way to raise funds. Crowdfunding is an entrepreneur's alternative to the traditional fundraising path of seeking venture capital.
Payton commented that this seemed so easy and obvious and asked Albright if there is a catch to such fundraising. As Albright explained, crowdfunding is completely legal as long as it is reward-based. That is, contributors must receive something in exchange for the money they give. Currently, there is proposed legislation to put rules and regulations around crowdfunding.
Albright is also the author of the blog NowStreet Journal, a primary provider of analysis and insight into the private company marketplace as well as the legislation and innovation currently fueling it. Based on her original hypothesis that directly correlates advancements in mass communications with stock market growth, NowStreet highlights the dynamic economic impact of a purely growth marketplace rising during the most ground-breaking period of mass media and regulatory reform.
