Turning to 2013CF Report to Make Sense of Crowdfunding Industry

The month kicked off with some major events centered on the first birthday of the JOBS Act, while a few days later, our sister research and advisory arm, massolution, released 2013CF, the 2nd Crowdfunding Industry Report that has quickly become the standard for those looking for valuable data on one of the globe's most exciting sectors. Worldwide media outlets sat up and took notice of the big growth numbers that the Crowdfunding industry posted in 2012 -- massolution's predictions from last year's report turned out to be on target -- while also looking to the future and continued growth that is expected to turn crowdfunding into a $5.1 billion industry by next year.

The $5.1 Billion Future Of Crowdfunding Is More Than Kickstarter

More than 1 million campaigns across 308 platforms raised $2.7 billion last year, an increase of 81% on 2011. And that volume is set to almost double in 2013, to $5.1 billion, according to a new report. But, if you thought the future of crowdfunding was all about dinky video game pitches, and cheerful perks on Kickstarter, you’d be missing something. Going forward, crowdfunding is likely to take on many forms, be more geographically-diverse, and, for better and worse, look more like big-time investing. 2013CF-The Crowdfunding Industry Report.

Crowdfunding raises $2.7 billion worldwide in 2012

But, the concept has a far wider reach than just consumer devices. Global crowdfunding raised nearly $2.7 billion for more than 1 million campaigns in 2012, according to a new report by Massolution. This means that the crowdfunding market grew by 81 percent over the year prior. "While lending-, donation-, and reward-based crowdfunding have thus far been leading this global financial revolution," CEO of Massolution Carl Esposti said in a statement, "equity-based crowdfunding is about to take center stage in the U.S.

" Numbers generated by Massolution, based on data collection from 308 active crowdfunding platforms worldwide, show that 27.4 percent of crowdfunding money went to social causes. Massolution forecasts that these numbers will just keep on growing in the year to come. Www.eurada.org/files/Scoping Paper Crowdfunding 7_6_2012.pdf.

Certainly they seem to have become a meme. If you know that crowdfunding is a big deal, it’s probably because you read all about it in TechCrunch, in May (“these portals raised $1.5 billion and successfully funded more than 1 million campaigns in 2011″), USA Today, a few weeks later (“About $1.5 billion was raised in 2011 by about 450 crowd-sourcing Internet sites worldwide”), or maybe the Economist, a week after that (“$2.8 billion will be raised worldwide this year, up from $1.5 billion in 2011″). More recently, Forbes upped the ante even further: “This year alone, an estimated $3.2 billion dollars is expected to be raised through donation-based crowdfunding platforms like Kickstarter”. All of these statistics, you won’t be surprised to hear, come from the same place: a May report from Crowdfunding.org and its research arm, Massolution.

University of Pennsylvania - Wharton School June 26, 2013 Journal of Business Venturing, Volume 29, Issue 1, January 2014, Pages 1–16 Abstract: Crowdfunding allows founders of for-profit, artistic, and cultural ventures to fund their efforts by drawing on relatively small contributions from a relatively large number of individuals using the internet, without standard financial intermediaries.

Drawing on a dataset of over 48,500 projects with combined funding over $237M, this paper offers a description of the underlying dynamics of success and failure among crowdfunded ventures. It suggests that personal networks and underlying project quality are associated with the success of crowdfunding efforts, and that geography is related to both the type of projects proposed and successful fundraising.

Extraordinary popular solution: funding from crowds?

To date, crowdfunding has provided more than $500m for enterprises or ideas normally unable to raise money even from venture investors by aggregating funds from thousands of motivated and unaccredited individual investors. With the recent passage in the US of the JOBS Act, this novel method of financing stands to grow rapidly. Given the often small, distributed nature of clean energy development, a small, distributed financing model holds real potential though there are potential pitfalls as well. Executive Summary “Crowdfunding” allows early-stage companies, projects, and artistic ventures in the US to attract financing from the masses over the Internet and provides developing world microfinance initiatives a new avenue to secure capital.

Book excerpt: The Crowdfunding Revolution. (Editor’s note: Kevin Lawton is the author of “The Crowdfunding Revolution”. The following is an excerpt from the book.) My journey into crowdfunding was not exactly typical.Originally, I began exploring a new concept for an early-stage VC firm, one that was a radical departure from the old-school model, which seems to hold a belief that the minds of a few partners and their ‘Rolodex’ can outperform the collective wisdom of the billions of people on the planet. In researching this new model, I became increasingly exposed to and excited about crowdfunding, which shares many of the dynamics. While in many ways still in its “first inning”, crowdfunding is already on an exponential tear, and has the potential to be a powerhouse of capital formation and an integral part of Venture Capital’s future.

Fortunately, there are many activities afoot, that bode well for even equity-based crowdfunding, regardless of regulatory resistance.

BBC Crowdfunding Report. UKIE Crowd Funding Report - A Proposal to Facilitate Crowd Funding in the UK - February 2012. Access to finance is a key barrier to growing the interactive entertainment industry in the UK. UKIE believes that crowd funding models can provide a valuable source of finance for games and interactive entertainment businesses, particularly the large number of innovative and creative start-ups and SMEs that are emerging in the UK. The interactive entertainment industry is at the forefront of the adoption of crowd funding and crowd sourcing in the digital sector; a recent American crowd funding project (Double Fine Adventure) recently broke records by raising over $1.5 million in 24 hours on the crowd funding platform Kickstarter.

However, we also believe that crowd funding has the potential for much wider use by SMEs in other sectors and wider community based projects throughout the UK.

Www.planetinsane.com/download/crowd-funding.pdf. Survey: 92% say legalise crowdfunding - and will invest too! Following our recent crowdfunding survey 92% say legalise crowdfunding – but 8% have real concerns about potential abuse. Of those willing to invest (80% of our audience), 65% would invest upto or in excess of £10,000 or US$10,000 per year. Although a significant number – 30% would be interested in investing up to £1,000 or US$1,000 per year. That means that the most typical annual investment would be around 10,000 – and we can speculate that this might consist of investments in 1,000 dollars or pounds chunks.

Remember, the audience on iBusinessAngel are most interested in startups. Hence, startup companies looking to raise funds by offering #1,000 stakes will appeal to the widest audience.
