Entrepreneur in its print version had a useful article about a crowdfunding rating agency, if you will, called CrowdsUnite.
We took a look at their site, and while not exactly a ratings agency, they did list 12 crowdfunding sites on their website, with links.
About two or three of them appear useful to business, but it’s all in the crowdfunding listing and what happens.
One of our clients had an interesting experience with www.hyperfund.com, which was that they didn’t disclose a $5,000 commitment fee to do research on whether to approve his loan. We thought that should be waived altogether, and told one of the Hyperfund founders so, since as a member of Solutions Forum, we’ve already vetted his funding need and even recommended funding platforms.
We’ll do the same for you…..we only charge $100 as a review fee, and we’ll throw in access to our articles site at www.thesolutionsforum.com. For a complete run-through on financing sources, take our Alternative Funding course at www.theasoe.com
