One of the hot new approaches I have seen around the country for assisting startups looking for funding has been “crowd-sourcing” sites (Kickstarter) or “crowd-pitching” events (Funding Universe). These are variations on a “crowd-funding” theme to raise money for a startup through social networks and voting at public events. I’m still waiting for a startup to proclaim real success from this approach.

Thanks, Martin.

This is the 1st article I've seen on "Crowd-Sourcing" that wasn't basically just cheer-leading. Lots of things to consider before we dive in!
