Getting Funded - Infographic on Crowdfunding

2 comments

Morning Visionaries,

We are writing the next chapter - on how to get funded. A year ago we had 150 founders show up to our event on crowdfunding in SF. The biggest question on everyone's mind was, "Does it work?" Crowdfunding is not just the next chapter in our book. It's the next chapter for all entrepreneurs. Democratic. Worldwide. And it actually works. AngelList and Kickstarter are only getting started. Now let's take a look at the data and trends. (Special thanks to the founder of AngelList Naval Ravikant for answering my questions.)

Here is a draft of the crowdfunding infographic in the next chapter.

Thank you for sharing the vision!

Anna
