Help out a Crowdfunding researcher

To all Crowdfunding Platform Owners/Employees

As a master student of the University of Amsterdam I would like to ask you to participate in
this research on Crowdfunding. As you will know Crowdfunding has become a phenomenon
of high interest the last couple of years. Academic research on this topic is very scare to non-

With this research I would like to get a better insight in the concept Crowdfunding. Although
there is a definition, I would like to find out whether one can observe particular streams of
crowdfunding. The results of the research will hopefully lead to generalizations about this
concept that are academically sound.

The questionnaire will be treated completely anonymous and is for research purpose only. It
will take you no longer than 5 minutes to complete.

The link to the research is: http://www.thesistools.com/web/?id=196620

If you are interested in the results of the research please let me know via:
or find me on twitter: http://twitter.com/Thesiscrowdfund

Kind regards,

Dutch Equity Based Crowdfunding platform presents Exclusivi

The recently launched Equity-based Crowdfunding platform www.mkbcrowdfunding.nl features some of its latest proposition via www.crowdsourcing.org. The platform uses the innovative construction developed by the Dutch company Symbid. One of the selected propositions is Exclusivi. The idea for Exclusivi was developed by Anthony Carter.

Exclusivi is a new mobile application which shows you in your favorite shopping area any special offers that are exclusive to members only. So how does this concept exactly work which is unique in the Netherlands? First you download the free application from www.exclusivi.nl to your Smartphone. Once the application is running, you'll see a list of special deals in your neighborhood. Such a deal could be for example a free pair of Levi's jeans when you walk into a specific clothing store as one of the first one hundred customers. The application will display a promotion code that you show to the cashier. The coolest feature is that the application can also notify you automatically of any special offers in your area. This way you do not have to open the application and go through the list of deals every time. Isn’t this easy! Partners can publish their deals for free. The application is soon available on multiple platforms.
