The days of needing venture capitalists or angel investors to be innovative and bring things to market are over thanks to crowdfunding.
Tampa, FL (PRWEB) October 12, 2013
Crowdfunding expert Kendall Almerico, CEO of crowdfunding website http://www.ClickStartMe.com and founder of charity crowd funding site http://www.CrowdItForward.com, says that a recent Tech Crunch article on the use of crowd-funding is correct saying it has opened new doors for the best minds of our time to begin a new era of innovation in computer hardware.
“The days of needing venture capitalists or angel investors to be innovative and bring things to market are over thanks to crowdfunding,” crowdfunding expert Almerico says. “Consumers like to buy amazing new products that they can touch, feel, hold, and show off. Crowdfunding allows consumers to have a direct role in getting these products to market.”
Almerico points out that until recently, new products were invented, produced, and shipped solely if the financial investors saw profitability. With crowdfunding, new products can prove market demand first and innovators can create products that people actually want and support, keeping customers the primary concern with profit coming later.
Almerico explains how crowdfunding has expanded what an innovator can do to meet their potential. “Truly amazing innovators can come from all walks of life, but for the past decade, these innovators had to learn how to code software or build apps to get good ideas to market due to manufacturing cost restraints and the difficulty finding funding. Crowdfunding has opened the door so that a consumer can spend that $5.00 to support a tangible invention instead of a new App, or their $50 to pre-purchase a physical innovation instead of a new computer game.”
