Have you ever wondered how funders discover top founders? Founders are different from one to another, and spotting one is difficult. Here are some tips.

Ivan: Did you know abut FundedByMe's service? I am thinking of using them when I am publishing my book on tea.

Ivan: The case of Oculus Rift discussed at a MeetUp in Gothenburg some months ago. CEO of FundedByMe, Daniel Daboczy told the story about how people had crowdfunded O.R. and then it got acquired by Facebook. What do you think the people thought about that situation? The solution could be equity crowdfunding.

Martin,

I'm interested in crowdfunding, but not supporting any for one reason: Because I don't get the equity from what I am paid for :) Funding a project, I want to own a part of it, not just a customer.

Equity crowdfunding is indeed the way to go :)

Ivan: Great interview with Jeremy Levine of Bessemer Venture Partners! I like his story how they found out about Pinterest and that the founders were not fitting the regular profile "template". It will be interesting to see more end-to-end market place applications in the future. Uber is a great example. The scary thing is that conservative elements and lobbyist are fighting against the paradigm shift.

Martin,

What do you think of crowdfunding vs. VC funding? Crowdfunding has also helped launching great startups, such as Oculus Rift.
