Launching a new project or product can be financially daunting. If you are anything like me you don’t have stacks of cash laying around just waiting to finance your next brilliant idea. Enter crowd funding.
Basically, you present your project online and ask for start-up donations. Typically, donations are rewarded by offering a variety of perks. It is a great way for an entrepreneur to fund their project and each participant gets in on the ground floor of new products they are interested in.
I am the illustrator member of a 3 woman team seeking to publish two new children’s books. Diana Scimone (the author) is chronicling our experience with indiegogo on her blog. I encourage you to follow along and decide if crowd funding might be the answer to your publishing needs.
