Before the interview, I asked Dr. Wright about Crowd-Funding
CW: What exactly is crowd funding and how did it start?
LW: Crowd-funding is raising money by using a 3rd party website. It started back in 2006. Kickstarter and Indiegogo made it easy and more popular by creating websites for people to use to collect the funds. Now there are over 500 different websites which someone could use to do crowd-funding.
CW: Why has crowd funding become so popular?
LW: It’s popular because you are actually growing your tribe. You not only collect money but you build a community of like-minded people who want to see you be successful.
CW: Is there any legal red tape that people should be aware of when considering crowd funding?
LW: There is a LOT of legal red tape and you can get into trouble when you don’t know what you are doing. That’s why it’s good to consult an expert.
