Hello everyone. This is an alert to some research I have underway. I am looking at several of the leading crowdfunding platforms to assess the “state of crowdfunding” today. I am looking at the following crowdfunding sites:
- Early Shares
- Funders Club
- Lending Club
- Rock the post
I am over half way through and am seeing some interesting trends. I’m conducting a fundamental analysis against these factors:
Geography, Funding Type, Audience, Purpose, Experience, Adoption, Investing Model, Secondary Market, Business Model, and How it works.
I expect to post some results within weeks. So if you feel I am missing an important crowdfunding site or factor then please let me know.
