We’ve heard a lot about crowdfunding. It’s been a hot topic for several years, with its fits and starts. It took a long time to get Securities and Exchange Commission approval and the regulations in place to allow crowdfunding. But crowdfunding isn’t the only way to raise money.
Crowdfunding –raising monetary contributions from a large number of people to fund a project or venture – is one of the tools in the tool chest, and it may be a great tool in many cases, but in some other cases, it may not be. You need to look around and think about it as one of the tools available in your tool chest.
If you’re working on an automobile like I enjoy doing, you’re going to get the right tool for a particular job. Sometimes you need a wrench. Sometimes you need a set of pliers. Sometimes you need a screwdriver, and sometimes you need more than one tool. Sometimes a wrench that will work for one project may not fit in a particular location or work in a different place. You need to think about crowdfunding as one of the tools in your tool chest. It’s not the only way to get money. It’s one of the ways to get money. Think about your overall plans and objectives, and then tailor a solution to your needs.
