Millions reason to explore crowdfunding! (or Amanda & Pebble)


GOOD: Kickstart has several million dollar success stories!

BAD: Like more deals, less than half of Kickstart deals get funded (i.e. zero dollars)!

UGLY:  Regulation from JOBS could cause issues for current market!

BOTTOMLINE: If your raising capital, crowdfunding could be your answer (key word is could)!  Bring your friends to kickstart the process or marketing plan is key!

one in million (or WSJ and VCs take potshot at Crowdfunding)


Bookmark and Share

GOOD: Crowd Funding has many great stories (Pebble Tech on KickStart just one in million!);

BAD:  It only takes on big negative story to leave a negative mark;

UGLY: WSJ and VC call for Pebble Tech on KickStart as the test for crowdfunding vs. looking at all the other success stories.

BOTTOMLINE:  Crowdfunding works and lets hope the SEC and Pebble Watch does not do damage to the industry!

Peeble Watch not for Dick Tracy

AND NOW FOR THE NEWS:

WSJ potshot at Crowdfunding: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702304441404577478732360629906.html

BAD: Ask and you will receive still needed vs. post and you will receive (need marketing);

UGLY: Asking friend and family to be first funders is key funding with Crowdfunding (as with any capital raise)!

BOTTOMLINE:  Crowdfunding works, but you need marketing to help get the deal off the ground. “Friends & Family” to getting out the message that your raising money is still key.

GOOD:  Supreme court protect consumers for abuse of the rules commerce clause!

BAD: The tax man is coming!

UGLY: Run away government regulation

BOTTOMLINE: Universal health care one thing, but a bastardized law equals regulation, taxes, and an expensive mess for business and consumers. Gone is the land of the free and the brave! Welcome the land of the taxed and the regulated!

Media bar stories about Private Equity (or Fairy Tales about capitalism)!


Bookmark and Share

GOOD:  Moody’s data shows positive information about Private Equity deals!

BAD: Private Equity Groups (PEGs) do liquidate companies!

UGLY:  Why is the media telling fairy tales about private equity as evil?

BOTTOMLINE: Capital / Private Equity is good thing!

Moody’s data shows that private equity-owned companies are much less likely to be liquidated when the going gets tough. It turns out that private equity does more to save the jobs of workers at struggling companies than other types of owners do.
