Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) February 24, 2014
On February 21, 2014, host Michelle Matthews of Growth Matters on Business RadioX® welcomed to the studio David Lilenfeld with SterlingFunder and Mark Shekerow with CareGiver Communications for a tutorial on crowdfunding.
David Lilenfeld is Co-Founder and CEO of SterlingFunder, an Atlanta-based equity and debt crowdfunding portal with an innovative approach to connecting startup companies seeking capital with qualified investors. According to Lilenfeld, "Our mission is to be the catalyst for business growth, economic development and job creation through the power of the crowd. We provide the platform, education and tools to shift the power from Wall Street to Main Street."
As a lawyer, investor and entrepreneur, Lilenfeld recognizes the enormous effect crowdfunding will have on businesses and individual investors across the country and eventually the world. Explained Lilenfeld, "When The JOBS Act – which makes equity-based crowdfunding legal in the United States – became law, I began planning a way to help match passionate, smart entrepreneurs with intelligent, growth-minded investors in a union that has been unduly burdensome to make before crowdfunding."
Also in the studio was Mark Shekerow, CEO at CareGiver Communications, Inc., an organization that provides information that helps improve the lives of caregivers and those that they care for. They provide a low cost way for local and national companies that provide goods and services for the 60 million caregivers nationwide to reach this $300 billion market. According to Shekerow, "We have evolved from a regional magazine based business to a multi-media company with emphasis on the internet, internet radio, TV and a national publication."
As part of that growth, Shakerow explained, "We've been working on the business for a number of years, and we're to a point where we need additional funding to grow, and that's why we're pursuing crowdfunding."
