Recently, we’ve been hearing a lot about crowdfunding platforms. So much so that even the mainstream media has been covering it.
First there was Kickstarter and the uber-successful Pebble E-Paper Watch which raised over $10 million dollars. Then there is the over $600,000 that has been raised to give Karen Klein (the bus monitor who was humiliated) a vacation on indiegogo.
Why are these platforms successful? What role does the product or story have on the ability for people and/or organizations to raise money on crowdfunding sites? What’s the future of crowdfunding? What impact will the JOBS Act in the States have on both sides of the 49th?
On Wednesday July 25th 2012, join Karim Kanji as he has a conversation with Brian Meece of RocketHub to discuss these questions and more!
