All of you now have the ability to become “mini-venture capitalists” with the use of crowdfunding platforms. Go to Kickstarter.com or another crowdfunding platform and take a look at some of the ideas that are currently being pitched. Find an idea that provokes a strong reaction from you, either an idea that you would personally be interested donating to or an idea that makes you think “You’ve got to be kidding!”
Share the idea you found and the link to the page where the idea is being pitched. Explain why you think the pitch was strong or why you think it was very weak. Also, explain whether or not you think the author of pitch followed business plan guidelines as outlined in the background materials. Cite specific sources on business plans that you’ve reviewed as part of the background materials or used for your assignments.
