Crowdfunding – An Adaptable Gamble and Game

Crowdfunding – An Adaptable Gamble and Game

Will crowdfunding continue to help your money grow?

Will crowdfunding continue to help your money grow?

With the popularity of crowdfunding rapidly increasing, we have noticed that everything from school plays to community renovations and business ventures are finding funding through various crowdfunding campaigns. But with the word crowdfunding, or crowd sourcing, becoming such a common American word, we must pose a question about the future of crowdfunding.

We have been discussing this very topic with various colleagues, and collectively we wonder if the effectiveness of crowdfunding will last or if we will have a need to find something new to revolutionize start-ups in the future the way that crowdfunding did in the past. Our Colleague Barry Rickert, like many others, believes in the idea that most crowdfunding is equity based and will adapt according to the times.

Crowdfunding is currently a very popular and easy way for anyone to navigate throughout a crowd to gain funding and for this reason; the public has fallen in love with the idea in general. Barry said, “There will be a select group that finds this method of gambling fun, exciting and challenging, just like a gambler does at a casino.” While there is a risk involved with anything in the realm of crowdfunding, the losses seem to be fairly low and allows these gamblers a chance to play a safer game. With so much initial support, it is hard to imagine why anyone wouldn’t love the crowdfunding platform, but the comparison set forth by Barry is correct, and while some gamblers will continue to play for the love of the game, there are some that may not stay as active for the simple fact that they do not love the game but wanted to “drop a few coins in the slots just to say they played.”

As for us, we believe that crowdfunding has proven its revolutionary nature over the years and continues to expand and evolve according to new laws, standards and resources as they present themselves. Here at Stock Connections, we believe that crowdfunding will be a valuable tool for start-ups for years to come. Come see us today to learn more.
