A new role-model of entrepreneurship by reutilizing successful examples
Jul 13, 2017
The creative solution that arose from crowd-funding utilization, brought forth a new trend for startups. Not only does it provide a combination of the two platforms of “creative, idealistic, but lacking capital” with “have capital, and willing to donate and support quality creativity”. Now the threshold of entrepreneurship has been lowered, plus capital now may be sourced from crowd funding, along with maintaining creativity and operation independence on the proposer’s side. In order to increase the success rate of the entrepreneurship, flyingV has proposed providing consulting material, that has to include the four elements of: “anticipation”, “trust”, “uniqueness”, “value”, as well as analyzing the operation of its products and proposition before and after the project’s availability. Generally speaking, “Music Videos”, “Technical Applications”, and “Product Design” are the three projects with the highest amount of one-time donations. The proposers of these projects, have learned that there are many highly-anticipated business opportunities in our society, yet no one is going for them. We recommend that the government should provide a transparent and clear information platform, so that the pre-existing civil resources may be utilized appropriately, thus further provide entrepreneurs a more fostering environment. By slowly concentrating skilled professionals, capital, and industries, we may truly build a fertile ground for entrepreneurship.
