Crowdfund Investing for Dummies


If you’re eager to learn more about crowdfunding but haven’t yet been able to attend the many conferences and events that bring crowdfunders and business people together, you’re in luck. SeedInvest advisors Jason Best and Sherwood Neiss, along with their Startup Exemption co-founder Zak Cassidy-Dorion, have jointly written Getting Started with Crowdfund Investing for Dummies, an abbreviated version of which was released this Tuesday and is now available on Kindle.

The complete version, which will come out in March, will cover the details of crowdfund investing and how investors can facilitate the role of crowdfunding in the economy. But for those who just can’t wait to get their holiday reading started, this shorter version will take a greater focus on the entrepreneurial aspect, with chapters on Financing a Startup or Small Business, Picturing Your Crowd and Working with an Online Investing Platform, to name but a few.

The book tour hasn’t kicked off yet, but for us the prospect of electronic signatures on our Kindles is still pretty exciting.
