What the Future Holds

 
 

We won’t question Deloitte Canada when they say that PCs will still be relevant and that mobile advertising will expand in 2013, but where we’re really paying attention is their annual TMT forecast that crowdfunding portals will “double their haul from 2012.”

As described in this Financial Post article, Deloitte notes the success of Kickstarter, through which over two million backers pledged over $320 million, as being an indication of crowdfunding’s popularity to come. And yes, we have stated before that there is a difference between crowdfunding portals like SeedInvest and Kickstarter, but that doesn’t change the fact that people are looking more and more to the public as a means of raising capital.

With changes in the SEC leadership and the momentum of awareness-building programs still strong from last year, the creation of a legal framework for crowdfunding in the United States is well on its way to materialization. And, with David Drake naming us one of the leading players in crowdfunding today, you can say that we’re hugely optimistic about what 2013 will bring.
