In a recent survey of would be startups and established startups about the greatest barriers to starting a business raising money topped the list.
At any given time there is an estimated 27 million business that are in need of capital. The US Small Business administration states that the number one reason over 51% of all business go out of business is due to lack of capital. Yet in-spite of this obvious need, 23% of entrepreneurs are so daunted by the task of raising money that they don't even try and another 51% are turned down for their efforts.
This is all changing. Reaching out to Friends and family is how most entrepreneurs get started, but this source by definition is a very limited group with potentially limited means, Next on the list are traditional investors, Angels, Super Angels, VCs & the like, but these professional investors are typically too narrow in their focus and short sighted to fund most startups.
In this super connected world, Crowdfunding is the tool that lets you tap into this new resource allowing anyone to mine the world for like mined individuals and fast track passion projects like never before.
There are now more the 2500 crowdfunding portals online today. Funding everything under the sun and that number is expected to double over the next few years.
Globally the total funds raised has followed an exponential curve from $532MM in 2009 to just over $6.7BB last year and is expected to be over $15BB in 2015.
With the passing of the JOBS Act and the addition of equity crowdfunding to the scene, Crowdfunding is expected to grow to an incredible $300BB marketplace in the coming years.
