If the JOBS Act (Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act) is fully passed in early 2013, the doors will fly open for crowdfunding investors who would rather receive equity in a company than make a donation that only nets them a t-shirt or DVD souvenir.
Each and every week, millions of dollars are contributed to crowdfunding projects and you now have one more resource to get involved. Similar to other crowdfunding websites, GetFunded.com will allow you to raise money by submitting a project, or you can contribute money to an an existing project.
Unlike other crowdfunding sites, GetFunded.com does offer a few advantages over their competition:
They allow you to create any type of crowd fundraiser, the way you want to. You are not limited to artistic or business related endeavors.
They offer you assistance with your crowd funding project request. Need help creating a business plan? No problem, GetFunded.com has you covered!
They offer you a crowdfunding specialist whos forte is helping you reach your goals and ultimately making your project a success.
They offer you an option most of the other crowdfunding platforms have taken a stance against. GetFunded.com will give you the option to keep any amount you raise through their crowdfunding platform. Many of the existing crowdfunding sites make you forfeit any money raised, which is returned to the contributors, if your goal is not reached.
Back in June of this year, Apps Genius announced they were going to join the crowdfunding community and opened the doors to their new site, GetFunded.com.
The site is anticipated to go live in the next few weeks. Until then, pre-registration has been opened to all businesses seeking crowdfunding. Apps Genius is reviewing all projects to participate in their pre-launch of GetFunded.com and successful applicants will receive up to $5,000 towards their funding.
