Mobile, Alabama (PRWEB) July 20, 2012
Crowdfunding is all the buzz right now and for good reason - crowdfunding is being used to raise tens of millions of dollars right now for their project owners. Nearly $3 billion dollars is expected to be raised using crowdfunding platforms this year.
With this in mind, Conzortia Business Funding, Inc., a leader in the crowdfunding market, is launching a suite of websites designed to assist with area residents' crowdfunding needs. This week they have launched a site targeting Alabama residents.
"Crowdfunding is being used creatively right now to help individuals and businesses achieve their capital goals", declares Robert Dobyns, CEO of Conzortia. "There's no wait, as long as stock or equity in a company isn't being offered." Dobyns is, of course, referring to the JOBS Act, which does require a waiting period before equity-based crowdfunding can be utilized. He continues, "Companies, individuals and organizations in Alabama who can look at their capital needs and figure out creative ways to offer non-equity perks to their funders can have very successful fundraising campaigns."
Successful indeed. A recent watch/gizmo campaign raised over $10 million via crowd funding. A gaming platform offer secured over $5 million in crowdfunding revenue.
And the list goes on and on for those raising tens of thousands of dollars today with successful crowdfunding projects.
"It's not magic," Dobyns offers. "Crowdfunding takes strategic planning and skillful execution to succeed. Plan and work the plan, is what makes for a successful venture. And we're to help with that execution."
