In the past few weeks we worked on improving the crowdfunding platform profile page. We redesigned the appearance of the pages for each platform and added more information about the campaigns in each review—such as the amount that users wanted to raise, the amount they actually raised, and the category of respective project. With this additional information our users can get a better understanding of the reviews and pay more attention to ones that are similar to their own projects. We also updated the profile view for each of the platforms. Now the platform’s Twitter feed and the breakdown for of…

Last week I pitched CrowdsUnite at an event in NYC in front of 200 people and VCs. The vision of CrowdsUnite is to be the first destination online for fundraising. Companies and individuals can come to the site to learn about all the different types of funding such as donation, reward, debt, and equity.

Alex finished by giving the audience tips to run a successful crowdfunding campaign. To see the full presentation go to this link:

CFGE Crowdfunding Conference

Last week I had the pleasure of attending the Crowdfund Investment and ALT. Finance Summit . It focused primarily on the Equity, Debt, and Real Estate crowdfunding. It had a great list of speakers and likely for me the audience comprised mostly of the speakers since the event was a bit too expensive for the NYC audience. NYC is the capital of the USA if not the world but still its hard to justify charging over a few hundred dollars for any events while there are hundreds of free meetups every week.

I still had a good time at the conference and managed to…
