Hi Martin -- thanks. Cute comment! :-)

I think crowdfunding is best for raising small amounts of money, not the big bucks of venture capital. But for many small businesses, $20,000 or so in crowdfunding would be more than enough to get a new business off the ground until it starts bringing in revenues.
