    I thought the discussion was great; a lot of good information. The discussion answered all of the questions I personally had, and truly helped my partner and I decide whether crowdfunding is for us.

    Hello, I would like to attend your event. I founded the True Form Trianing System as well as the True Form brand. My system will revolutionize the way athletes and fitness enthusiast train. I'm looking to raise $250,000 in some sort of crowdfunding efforts for the deployment of my system into the marketplace. I would like to know the best way to go about this so that my crowdfunding efforts are successful. Any advice and suggestions would be appreciated.

    Hi Robert. Oops. I didn't mean to press "enter" yet. In any event, I am a lawyer by profession and I have done a bit of research regarding crowdfunding. My reason for attending your session is to get a few more questions answered prior to our launch. For example, it is our intent to raise about $300,000 in our campaign. With that large an amount we are hoping to get investors who will invest as much as $5,000 to $10,000, as well as smaller investors who might invest $100 or $500.

    I am very interested in attending this event, if possible, as my company is planning on doing a crowdfunding event in February 2013.

      Hi. Thanks for getting back to me. My company, Eco Home Store, is an online retail company which sells eco-friendly products. We launched our website in November 2010 and have enjoyed decent success. Since we had very limited funds when we began, we utilized the power of social media marketing and hooked up with companies like Living Social and Groupon to advertise our business and acquire customers. While we have enjoyed moderate success with this marketing strategy, we have always known that it was not a long term strategy for us. In short, this strategy has been a loss leader for us. Nonetheless, it has allowed us to acquire about 1400 customers, and has at least proven that we have a solid business model. We are now ready to grow our company (exponentially) and we are looking for funding. We have been aware of crowdfunding for some time and recently decided that we would try that tact. We hope to launch our crowdfunding campaign in late February or early March.
