Crowdfunding sites like Kickstarter, ProFounder and Quirky can help you get your business, art show or music tour off the ground.
Let’s say you’ve got a brilliant business idea but the bank doesn’t agree with you. (Or you lack the collateral.) And your family and friends are all tapped out. Does that mean that you should give up and get back to your cubicle?
Thankfully, no. There are plenty of online resources for crowd funding; getting lots of little payments from your community, friends, colleagues and even strangers who like your idea.
In a recent segment I taped for 207, we looked at a number of sites like KickStarter, ProFounder and Quirky where creatives and entrepreneurs could turn to for seed money for their business ideas, music CDs, causes and more.
You can watch the segment below or over at the 207 website. Enjoy!
