Why, in particular, are your interested in crowdfunding?

I'm an entrepreneur, consistently limited by lack of access to capital (because I focus primarily on services organizations, which most VCs don't want to touch).

Are you looking for money or for an investment, or are you just curious?

Both...curiosity is driven by opportunism, and a passionate opportunist must be curious. I have recently formulated a concept that could potentially benefit from a new means of accessing funds from someone other than an accredited investor (a stupid rule designed to help the rich get richer and the average guy stay average...under the guise of "protection for the average guy").

How familiar are you with the subject of crowdfunding in general? Have you been the beneficiary of a crowdfunding effort in the past?

I'm familiar with some recent sites which were carefully structured to support such activity legally, but I've never tried it becuase it didn't seem practical given the limitations.

Introduction

WAHOO!!! I've been waiting for this day since I was a finance major in college! I'm currently the owner of a few small enterprises based in Denver, with a focus on marketing services to the SMB sector.
