Attention teen innovators.
Robert Dobyns, CEO Conzortia Business Funding, Inc. has announced the launch of the first crowdfunding platform built specifically for teen innovators in the U.S.
“CrowdfundingKids.com focuses on promoting concepts, ideas and products presented by the next generation of entrepreneurs”, Dobyns stated. “This venue will assist American youths 13-17 in overcoming the tallest hurdle in promoting their concept – financing. I believe the next paradigm shift in the innovation marketplace will be to those in their teens. These individuals have the energy, passion and ideas; they just need the capital to make their dreams a reality. CrowdfundingKids.com will be a portal to provide this capital.”
Crowdfunding is a consortia of people pooling funds in order to support the efforts of another via the internet, social media and traditional advertising.
“While crowdfunding concepts is a major function of CrowdfundingKids.com”, Dobyns explains, “we are going way beyond funding. We are forming strategic alliances to provide mentorship for these youths, to grow them into the next generation of entrepreneurs. We are also establishing a scholarship program to make certain these youths get every advantage possible.”the original article from chron.com, written by staff
