nonprofits,local leaders & Grt.New Haven business sharing information
Ok, so you want to pursue a brilliant business idea that may or may not involve saving polar bears from extinction. You don't have the cash to fund it and as it turns out, you're working ten jobs, you've maxed out your credit cards, banks hate you and pirating is just a big no-no. So what do you do?
Take it to the streets...of the internet! That's right. There are scores of strangers online who are just as passionate about your idea - whatever it may be - ready to give you cash, for nothing in return! It's called crowdfunding.
You simply set up a free account in any of the crowdfunding sites like Indiegogo or Kickstarter and market your idea to these idea-hungry strangers. The catch is that these sites will take 4-9% of some or all the cash you raise. Still, when your idea comes alive, you'll see it's worth to follow the crowd.
