Crowd funding with a business and academic blend
1551_ 6/1/14 -" We’re excited about the prospect of using crowd funding to jumpstart promising projects developed by students, faculty and staff," said Chancellor Philip P. DiStefano. "For our initial pilot we looked for projects across a range of academic and research disciplines, as well as for projects that provide outreach." Larry interviewed Ray Johnson, CU-Boulder Crowd funding Pilot Project Lead from the Leeds School of Business, Deming Center for Entrepreneurship. CU-Boulder Crowd funding is a pilot online fundraising platform (launching May 2014) that allows CU-Boulder individuals and organizations to create and share fundraising campaigns with an engaged community. Our tools empower the CU-Boulder community to come together and create lasting impact on things you care about. Through the platform, you can: Explore eight exciting pilot projects led by CU-Boulder students and faculty, from engineering to archival work to film; Spread the word about projects that inspire you to help generate interest and enable project teams to reach their goals; Make tax-deductible contributions using a convenient online interface; Keep up with project developments and outcomes as the projects move toward completion. Plans are in progress to refine and expand CU-Boulder Crowd funding once the initial pilot concludes, so we welcome any feedback that can help us improve the platform. Listen for more details...
