#Texas to become 13th state to allow #Equity #Crowdfunding in #US

Crowdfunding investments are coming to Texas in September.
The Texas State Securities Board is in the final rule-making phase of allowing small businesses in the state to solicit up to $1 million annually from unregistered and accredited Texas investors via online crowdfunding portals.
The investors, who can invest up to $5,000 a year in portal offerings, will receive equity shares in the companies in return.
Previously, crowdfunding over the Internet through websites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo has been limited in the state to people who wanted to contribute to a company or cause without any financial return other than promotional items. Now they will receive shares in the company.
Texas will become the 13th state to allow such individual investments to be made over the Internet, Texas Securities Commissioner John Morgan said.

JIBO Robot tops this week’s Crowdocracy Top Ten

In the last few days of its campaign, JIBO Robot finally reaches the top spot this week. 


It edged out COOLEST Cooler campaign, which is still going strong on Kickstarter. With $8.4 million already in its kitty, and 20 more days to go COOLEST is heading to a new record of sorts. 

JIBO scored over COOLEST mainly because of JIBO’s social media shares and video traffic.

Another odd and surprise entry into the top ten is the Fire Squadron card game campaign at number ten. Odd, because the campaign goal was only $5, and surprise, because at the time of writing it had already raised $1,296, a full 26,000% of its goal in its first 3 days. 


Fire Squadron enters top ten entirely on the strength of the disproportionately large amount raised, despite virtually non-existent social media shares. It will be interesting to see how this card game performs in the remaining 27 days.

A Million In 3 Minutes

Last week we updated our list of top Five Fastest Crowfunded Million campaigns. It was widely reported CrowdCube raised £1.2 million in a crowdfunding campaign hosted on their own website. CrowdCube’s campaign goal was reached in just 16 minutes, setting a new world record. CrowdCube, therefore, topped our list of Fastest Crowdfunded Million.                          


However, subsequently in a Tweet CrowdCube clarified that $1 million was actually reached in just 3 minutes.

Our list of the Five Fastest Crowdfunded Million Campaigns, therefore stands corrected:


Wonder a million in 3 minute is a world record that can ever be beat? Well, in crowdocracy anything is possible!!!

Who Rules The Crowdfunding Roost?

Indiegogo is a well known pioneer in the world of crowdfunding launched back in 2008.In particular, those fundraising campaigns which support humanitarian, environmental, or other more altruistic endeavors frequently find a home on Indiegogo. Its global platform lends itself to crowdfunding campaigns the world over, and at present Indiegogo holds the distinction of hosting the highest crowdfunded total on the web, successful or not.

While establishing their presence mostly for people who have been affected by physical or financial hardship, GoFundMe has raised over $370m during its existence, primarily for causes and people instead of products. Although, Indiegogo campaigns have raised substantially more, the crowdfunding pioneer is poised for a substantial growth with $40 million venture capital raised in its latest round of funding.

THE LATEST: The daily rankings at Crowdocracy released today indicate that GoFundMe has surpassed and replaced its global and US rank from #3 to #2 at the Crowdocracy Global rankings and Crowdocracy US rankings pushing Indiegogo to third position. Crowdocracy Global ranking is estimated by averaging the global web traffic reported by Alexa and Similarweb, while Crowdocracy US ranking is the average of US web traffic as measured by Alexa, Compete and Similarweb. Outranking of Indiegogo by GoFundMe comes as a bit of surprise to most of us in the crowdfunding industry.

PREDICTIONS: While GoFundMe’s lead over Indiegogo in US ranking is sizeable, its Global lead is razor thin and it’ll not be too surprising if it’s edged out very soon by cash-rich Indiegogo. With rest of the crowdfunding sites way behind, Kickstarter, Indiegogo and GoFundMe are expected to keep ruling the crowdfunding roost at least for the rest of 2014.
