                 Crowd Funding Internet Platforms
             http://www.strategy-of-innovation.com/pages/Crowd_Funding_Websites-4605700.html

If you do not see your platform, indicate me your website with a short pitch indicating your type of
crowd funding, your theme and where in the world you are located (the owner of the platform)


Crowd Funding = Raising money online by soliciting small amounts from many (the
crowd) instead of a wealthy few.

These articles will help you to understand what Crowd Funding is about:

- 1/2: Types of Crowd Funding: Ways Entrepreneurs Can Face the Investment Crisis http://goo.gl/
xcBWX (Eng)
- 2/2: How to Invest Using a Crowd Funding Website http://goo.gl/LlSjq (Eng)
- French version of articles 1 and 2: http://goo.gl/k6gKa (Fr)

- Examples of Crowd Funding for big projects: http://0z.fr/My1Lx (Eng)
- Examples of biotech startups funded by Equity-based Crowd funding/Micro-investing: http://0z.fr/
mmhYW (Eng)

Types of Crowd funding (from money offer to money seeker):

    1.   Donation/Reward-based Crowd funding: Donation on project in exchange of rewards
         (thanks, exclusive news, gifts, goodies ... everything but not money)
    2.   P2P-Lending (peer to peer money lending and borrowing)
    3.   Crowd Co-Production: A) Bet on a project/company and get royalties on future revenues //
         B) Or alternatively, let your fans support your project by pre-ordering (pre-sales) your "future"
         product // C) Alternatively, let your fans support your project and offer them a coupon on your
         (future) products (this last one is in fact based on the Donation vs Reward model)
    4.   Equity-based Crowd funding: Micro-Investing in the equity of a privately-held company /
         raise funds by selling shares of your company (like classic Angel & VC investing which are a
         [one-to-few + offline closing deal] process / The equity-based CF process is a [one-to-many +
         online closing deal] process)

1, 2 and 3 can be used by individuals or organizations including companies, for profit or non-profit
projects
4 can only be used by incorporated companies

a process called "Crowdfunding/Micro-Investing". The process enables a film production company
(a privately-held company) to sell their stocks to its fans on the Internet, and also to raise the capital
they need by selling their stock on their own Web sites. To do this, the company needs to file with
the SEC in the U.S. to get permission to sell stock.). The CEO of CinemaShares, owns also http://
www.mediashares.com. This process is not cheap and can cost over US$100,000, so it is designed
for MAJOR films with budgets over US$,5 million..
