weblog about crowdfunding & crowdsourcing Crowdfunding has many faces; when someone talks about crowdfunding, he or she either means investing, supporting, loaning or donating. The concept of investments, loans and donations are clear, but what is supporting exactly? Crowdfunding creative projects is about supporting: the crowd finances a creative project in return for rewards. For example: in the case of a musician, the reward for a $10 funding could be a copy of a CD, for $25 a signed limited edition of the same CD and for $250 a meet and greet with the musician.

High Tech Startup Valuation Estimator Contact Us Now for a Free Assessment Wondering what your Pre-Money Value will be if a VC ever puts a term sheet on the table? Valuing a startup is intrinsically different from valuing established companies. Because of the high level of risk and often little or no revenues, traditional quantitative valuation methods like P/E comparables or discounting free cash flows are of little use. Business Loans without Banks An investment through the ThinCats platform involves making secured loans directly to individual businesses and therefore your capital is at risk and interest payments are not guaranteed if the borrower defaults and it transpires that the value of security held to protect against borrower default is insufficient to repay your capital and interest. Your experience of defaults will affect your earnings through lending on the Platform. Please click on the "What are the risks?" button to read more. Member of the peer to peer finance association

The talk is highly entertaining and thought provoking. He argues against the notion that startups that want to have a huge exit need to raise big money, noting that Microsoft raised just $1 million and eBay just $5 million, in venture capital. He says small startups can be hugely disruptive, and have proportionally huge exits. he calls these companies Thunder Lizards.
