Startup Digest


February 26, 2016

Creators, Fundraisers, Investors,

Here’s your weekly dose of articles and resources about crowdfunding!

This week I've included some orienting material which surveys various types of crowdfunding. There are many fundraising platforms, financial instruments, and marketing tools in the crowdfunding space already, and the landscape will probably continue changing rapidly for a while.

Check out the resources below and join the conversation with other Crowdfunding Digest subscribers on Twitter and Facebook. (These social media channels are freshly created... will you help me get them rolling?)

Enjoying the digest? Forward this to some friends and suggest they subscribe.
