Crowdsourcing: Join Andrew Ciccone as we discuss a topic that may be of interest to many, but maybe we just haven't had time to look into it! Andrew noted that crowdsourcing is a type of participative activity in which an individual, an institution, a non-profit organization, or company proposes to a group of individuals of varying knowledge, heterogeneity, and number, via a flexible open call, the voluntary undertaking of a task.

Today we will be meeting with Jeff Milchen of the American indpendent Busniess Alliance. Jeff is the Co-Founder of an organization, whose mission it is to help communities and local indepdent businesses thrive. Jeff is a passionate advocate for small local businesses nationwide and we will be talking about his efforts with AMIBA.
One of the things that we are witnessing nationwide and worldwide is that small businesses are typically caught in the political crossfire, while needing to make their businesses viable. Most don't have the same safety-net of cash that other businesses do, while at the same time their are at the point of the spear when it comes ot policy debates.
Organizations like Jeff's refocus the attention on these businesses in the areas that truly matter and that is helping them to attain more sales and more lifetime customers. In my conversations with those affiliated with AMIBA, it was apparent to me that small businesses need two things: 1) they need education and 2) they need manpower.
There is tons of information for small business available due to the internet. However, the proliferation of information is more of a problem than a solution. Who does a business listen to? What should they follow? Most of what works, cannot be found in a classroom.
The other thing that is needed of course, is manpower. This probably takes the form of consulting professional today, but quite frankly most small businesses can't afford an army of consulting resources unless they're assured that capital spent will turn into growth.
It is our desire, as it is Jeff's to see this addressed over the next couple of years. Interestingly most businesses have negated the opportunities present to innovate using capital available in the crowdsourcing model. I am hopeful that there will be more businesses moving forward in creating new products and services.

Back in the bad old days, entrepreneurs searching for funding had three choices:
1. Friends and Family
3. Angel and Venture Capitalists
For many this meant that starting a business was nearly a mission impossible. Then in 2007, all that changed when Prosper.com launched the first peer-to-peer lending service in the US. Since that time a number of other crowdfunding sites have popped up, including Kickstarter, which in 2012 raised more than $10 million for the Pebble Watch.
Before you decide to quit your day job, understand that not all projects get funded. Some pitches are flawed, while others are deemed unfundable due to the rules of various crowdsourcing portals. But for a staggering number of well thought out and executed proposals, the world wide web is your oyster.
On this episode, we will clue you into the ins and outs of using crowdfunding as a vehicle that can take your business to a whole new level or build one from the ground up. So tune in and join the conversation at 4pm every Tuesday.
