Build a world where more girls crowdfund
Crowdfunding has become a wonderful new financial resource for people all over the world. One website funded over $460 million dollars to different project in 2013. This year over 9 Billion dollars will be crowdfunded for different projects and new inventions. Women are a very small part of that. I speak all over the country and typically only 20% of my classes have women in them. There are a few big wins like Goldie Blox and Black Girls Code however; most women are not seeing success in this area.
Crowdfunding not only raises money, it also builds community and customers (if you have a business). I want to see more women and girls involved in the process and using it to move their ideas forward into manifestation. Crowdfunding is a not trend. It’s a real thing. It’s here. Women need to look at the opportunity that Crowdfunding provides and take part in it. Too many good ideas, invention and social businesses created by women are dying on the vine because of lack of financing. They have solutions that could change the world. This is a way to fund them.
