History of CrowdFunding Overview Signed into law on April 5, 2012 by President Obama, CrowdFunding provides reduced costs and opens additional sources of capital to the entrepreneurial and small business community by allowing them to leverage the power of social media. The industry has seen explosive growth in recent years. In their May 2013 report, industry analyst Massolution reported an 81% growth rate for 2012, predicting $5.1 billion in worldwide volume for 2013. With prominent investors such as Google Ventures, Donald Trump, Reid Hoffman, Mike Maples, Michael Birch and Tim Ferriss joining the crowd, the opportunity becomes even more apparent. A market in hyper-growth, with no sign of slowing down and an audience eager for resources creates the perfect storm for businesses looking to connect and offer resources to the small business community. With A&E, CNBC, and Yahoo launching CrowdFunding TV shows similar to Shark Tank, CrowdFunding is dominating the news cycle. The Securities and Exchange Commiss ...

Joichi Ito thoughts on Serendipity. From a conversation with Reid Hoffman at MIT Media Lab April 4, 2012 "Serendipity's hard. It's like meditation. You don't meditate by falling asleep. It takes a certain amount of focus. When you're a good hunter, with a bow and arrow, there's a point where you stop looking, and see everything. Without this hunter's eye, you can never see all of the motion. It's the same thing when you're looking for mushrooms. Part of it's pattern recognition, and part of it's this disciplined way of looking. Serendipity shouldn't be random. It requires hard work."
