Just how big is the #business #startup crowdfunding for this 'little' platform? Pretty big. MicroVentures back in 2009 became one of those business crowdfunding companies famous for launching capital funds from both accredited and nonaccredited investors for one OTHER little startup of a business beast — you guessed it, FACEBOOK.
It certainly helps that MicroVentures happens to focus on businesses in the software, mobile, media, entertainment, social, gaming and green-tech industries, so Facebook definitely had fit right in. And the budget to raise can be anywhere between the $150K to $1MM range. Not too bad.
What does this tell you? If you're thinking about starting up a new business and need some venture capital to get it off the ground running, MicroVentures might be a great possibility for you!
Don’t get us wrong; we love Kickstarter for crowdfunding. But when it comes to business startup crowdfunding, we need something more corporate focused.
