If you've been frequenting AN for the past few years you know what an outspoken advocate I've been for crowdfunding. Sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo have revolutionized how business is done in animation and many other fields as well. The latest developments in crowdfunding have pushed the envelope even further now that the US Securities and Exchange Commission has approved the sale of company stock through this process.
Not only will artists, creative individuals and entrepreneurs be able to raise capital through specific project oriented campaigns, they'll be able to sell stock in their company to investors through the crowdfunding.
This is a huge step forward for independents looking to build a financial foundation by raising money for what they want to do. One of the sites currently available for company stock sales through crowdfunding is EquityNet. In fact their video went online today and it's animated! Take a look at what we can expect from this new and innovative way of doing business. There's more information available about equity crowdfunding on the AN Forum topic.
