Crowd Coffee: December 15

Gaza Tech Incubator Finds Success In International Crowdfunding | NPRAfter one month of an Indigogo campaign, the tech hub Gaza Sky Geeks passed its minimum goal of raising $70,000 to keep the shared workspace in a Gaza City high-rise open. The group extended the campaign for a month to try to raise $250,000 — enough money to keep staff through next year and run an international hackathon. Gaza Sky Geeks Director Iliana Montauk began to plan the fundraising campaign during the war this summer, as the major grant that began the program ran out. After three conflicts in Gaza over the past five years, she was unsure whether people would invest in Gaza again.

Federal opposition outlines equity-based crowdfunding position | Startup SmartThe paper titled “Making CSEF a reality in Australia” noted that any legislation needed to balance the need to support “Australia’s most innovative companies” while also recognising the need to protect investors. It also reiterated calls for the government to act as quickly as possible. The paper is the result of what the Labor party says was broad consultation with the startup industry, and follows the federal government’s release of its own discussion paper last week.

Why slow and steady approach to crowdfunding may pay off | Startup SmartThe Financial System Inquiry has taken a “slow and steady” approach to financial crowdfunding, despite perceptions that Australia is lagging behind in this area. While acknowledging the wide range of global crowdfunding models, the report focuses on securities-based crowdfunding such as crowd-sourced equity funding (CSEF) or debt, and peer-to-peer lending (P2P), recommending: “Graduate fundraising regulation to facilitate crowdfunding for both debt and equity and, over time, other forms of financing.”

As feds drag feet on investment ‘crowdfunding’ rules, states — including Oregon — fill void | Oregon LiveTheir venture turned out to be a timely one. A year ago, Michigan passed a bill that would let businesses crowdfund startup or expansion costs through small investments from a large number of investors, and Tecumseh Brewing Co. was ready to be a test case. The rest of the brewery’s capital — $175,000 — ended up coming from 21 Michigan investors, most of whom Schmidt and DeWitt had never met.

Platforms and crowdsourcing: The office of the 21st century | GigaOmCrowdsourcing of resources: Whether it’s a room on Airbnb or knowledge on Wikipedia, the value on a platform is created by mobilizing resources that aren’t necessarily owned or controlled by the organization itself. A major advantage of the platform is that it doesn’t have to invest in all of these resources. Its reason for existence is simply to create synergies between them.

Breaking Tradition! Using Crowdsourcing As Part Of Your Social Media Marketing Strategy | Business 2 CommunitySocial media is a great marketing platform to empower and engage with your brand community. Relating to them on a human level and empowering them creates a situation where a brand can attain information which can lead to robust and successful marketing in the future. Crowdsourcing is the new market research and allows a level of co-operation between brand and consumer that derives significant value. Crowdsouring is defined as a ‘process of needed services, ideas, or content by soliciting contributions from large sums of people and especially online communities.’

Crowdsourcing team develops better method for detecting epileptic seizures | Mother Nature NetworkAn international competition is showcasing the power of crowdsourcing by helping to launch a new method to detect, predict and prevent epileptic seizures. Epilepsy is a brain disorder that affects roughly 1 percent of the population. It is characterized by seizures or episodes of disturbed brain activity that have been likened to electrical storms in the brain. The difficulty for sufferers is knowing when these seizures are going to hit and taking appropriate measures to prevent them.

The Street Store: A Lesson for the Sharing Economy? | Triple PunditThe Street Store seems to work because it reaches its goal simply and straight-forwardly, and because its ultimate product is the self-esteem and self-worth that’s gained by both parties. It takes a page from the early days of the sharing economy when sharing your neighbor’s drill or lending out a bicycle was the sum of the act, and where community action was the intended product, not the commercial outcome. It’s a lesson that may have great value as we move into the new year, and it’s encouraging to know it’s an attitude that still thrives where it counts most.

Putting Britain at the heart of the sharing economy | The TelegraphBeing closely monitored by a furry pooch is not a sensation I’m used to. But it’s all part of a new experience my kids hounded me into when we first came across BorrowmyDoggy.com. The site, launched two years ago in London, hooks up canine-lovers with dog-owners for short periods of time in a neat quid pro quo that perfectly exemplifies the sharing economy in action. You have what I want, so we’ll connect online via a low-cost website and make a transaction.

Google wants to advance the Internet of things, offers grants for ‘open innovation’ research proposals | Venture BeatKicking off the new “Open Web of Things” program, Google is inviting research proposals from academics interested in embarking on a “cross­disciplinary expedition intended to address the complex challenges and opportunities before us as we explore the next generation of systems, services and Internet­connected devices.” More specifically, Google wants proposals that address things like user interface and application development, privacy and security, and systems and protocols.

ALS Worldwide Launches Crowdfunding Campaign To Help Research Consortium Bring Promising ALS Drug To Clinical Trial

By   /  November 30, 2014  /  Business  /  No Comments

“The Ice Bucket Challenge showed us that people want to contribute directly to research,” said Stephen Byer, ALS Worldwide’s Co-Executive Director. “They want to see their dollars actually making a difference in treatments available to patients. There’s only one FDA-approved option right now, and it only extends life by a couple of months. The crowdfunding campaign is a way for people to contribute directly to bring this specific treatment—vetted by experts and supported by a consortium of research teams—into a clinical trial. This is a concrete way to make a difference.”

What’s the difference between crowdfunding and panhandling? | MarketWatchSome crowdfunding campaigns are also suspect. Take the curious incident of Steve Tan who wanted to make a waterproof, voice-activated smartwatch. He asked for $100,000 on Indiegogo, and received $1.5 million, yet many of those who got a watch said it didn’t even keep the correct time. The inventor allegedly posted photos of himself on Facebook with a new red Ferrari and shopping bags from designer stores. (The fundraiser said those photos were taken prior to the campaign and he didn’t own the Ferrari. “I never used a single cent of the money I crowdfunded from Indiegogo for my personal use or gain,” he wrote in a post to disgruntled donors.)

MicroGraam inks partnership with crowd funding platform for social good Kiva.org | The Economic TimesPeer-to-peer microlending platform MicroGraam has inked a strategic partnership with crowd funding platform for social good Kiva.org enabling people globally to fund low-income microfinance borrowers in MicroGraam’s network of NGO partners in India.Alongside, the partnership expands Kiva’s ability to crowd fund microloans in India.

William Shatner explores new worlds of self-publishing and Kickstarter | The GuardianShatner has turned to Kickstarter to raise the $50,000 (£32,000) he needs to release Catch Me Up, and just a few days in, the actor has already brought in donations of more than $15,000. The book will be a combination of stories Shatner has collected from people “who had been laid off, lost careers, had been downsized and replaced by younger people with more tech skills; but who actually fought back and won”, alongside “the vital tools and training needed to accomplish great things at any age”, he explains on his Kickstarter.

The 3 key ingredients to a successful crowdfunding campaign | The American GeniusPR companies orchestrate launches like Houston blasts rockets. Get the timing right and get the right people talking about your product. Organic traffic from your crowdsourcing platform won’t account for much more than 10 percent of a successful campaign’s booty, so you’re going to have to look elsewhere. PR firms such as Inner Circle Labs (which launched Jibo), JumpStarter PR, or BAM Communications (which focuses on innovation) should be considered.

Crowdfunding page deleted after man is busted with bogus photos | KESQKESQ found out the picture Kevin Fish had on the site of anx-ray of a person with bone cancer was identical to one published in a medical journal in 2007. When asked about this Fish, claims that the photo was taken by his cell phone at the doctors office on 12/20/14 and he was told by the doctor that it was an image of his MRI. “I’m telling you what happened, as God as my witness,” says Fish, “I was in the office. He put this up on there, after I sat in an MRI box for 30 minutes taking me taking pictures of my body,” says Fish.

One reporter is crowdsourcing the price of health care | Washington PostHer database relies on reports for individuals and hasn’t been without its problems. The most common complaints, Aliferis writes, is that it’s still hard to comparison shop — it’s not going to be easy as buying a retail item online. Also, the price of a health-care service doesn’t say anything about the quality of that service. In health care, there’s really no correlation between the two.

NYU Game Center Director Discusses Unique ‘Together We Game’ Video Game Crowdsourcing Project | Design & Trend“The Internet allows for this kind of open, collaborative, community-based design — people making maps and mods, player-generated content, open betas where the player-community feedback is a big part of the design process,” Lantz explained. “Some of the ideas have been so detailed and imaginative; I’m really impressed by how passionate and committed the fans have been,” he added.

Call for fair deal in ‘sharing economy’ | Herald ScotlandIndividuals should be able to earn £10,000 a year tax-free in the “sharing economy” by renting out their spare rooms, cars or other assets, a business leaders’ group has said. A growing number of householders are making money by renting out all or part of their homes temporarily to strangers through websites like Airbnb, and other schemes allow people to hire assets ranging from vehicles to tools, musical instruments, parking spaces and even dogs to take for a walk.

New Research Gets Into The Underbelly Of The Sharing Economy | PR NewswireAmericans have been reluctant to participate in the sharing economy. To date, the barriers to sharing have often outweighed the motivations that drive people to engage in sharing activities. When Americans share, they have splintered motives, often as personal as they are for the collective good. While most people think helping the less fortunate (53%) is a good reason to share, they are almost as motivated by convenience and practicality (28%) and saving or making money (28%) as they are from connectivity(22%) and a desire to own less (15%).

The humanity of George R.R. Martin

SANTA FE — A fully grown Arctic wolf saunters around guests near the concession stand of author George R.R. Martin’s movie theater. As the wolf revels in the attention from strangers at the Jean Cocteau Cinema, Martin himself makes small talk in a corner, his peculiarly jolly laugh easily distinguished above the noise of the room

It’s a scene you’d imagine would take place in an artsy, futuristic Winterfell, set long after the events of Game of Thrones‘ upcoming fifth season. But it’s real life, happening in 2014

Martin and his team are hosting a small group of town members and charity organizers at the theater to present the local recipients of his recent Prizeo charity crowdfunding drive with their $172,485.53 checks. The beneficiaries of that campaign — in which Martin famously auctioned off three in-book deaths for donators who pledged $20,000 — are The Food Depot of New Mexico and the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary. This, it is explained to me, is why Flurry, the aforementioned large Arctic wolf, is in the house. Read more…

In what amounts to a wake up call directed at a British public generally considered apathetic on privacy issues, NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden has warned that U.K. spy agencies are using digital technology to conduct mass population surveillance without any checks and balances at all — overreaching and encroaching on privacy rights in a way that he characterized as even worse than… Read More

Property Crowd Ltd to Pioneer Million Pound Real Estate Crowdfunding Investment Target

By   /  June 26, 2014  /  Business  /  No Comments

“Until now, property crowdfunding has been marketed as something for micro investments,” says James Robinson, Director of Sales and Marketing for Property Crowd. “We wanted to provide an offering that was attractive to experienced investors, or those looking to gain a better return on their savings or pension pot.”
