By Robert HoskinsFront Page Public Relations

CelebrityCrowdfunding.com developed to showcase campaigns for or by celebrities is also offering Complimentary Celebrity-led disaster relief and charity Crowdfunding fundraisers and more. The website is now in the process of raising funds for marketing and promotions.

Crowdfunding is now the “go-to” source for raising capital for Celebrities and those with STAR Status.

Crowdfunding is now the “go-to” source for raising capital for Celebrities and those with STAR Status.

Prior to Crowdfunding and websites like Kickstarter and Indegogo you had to have your own funds or good credit, a job and a business plan if going to a bank for money. Then if approved have to worry about being successful enough to pay back your brand new Company’s brand new debt. With Crowdfunding anyone can raise the funds needed for any idea or cause. Based on the popular growing trend for Celebrities to Crowd Fund, launching the first official “Celebrity Targeted” platform is a great idea.

Celebrities are using their Star Status to their advantage and are Crowdfunding and asking fans to make donations towards their personal ventures or favorite causes. James Franco recently launched an Indegogo campaign to fund three individual films and is seeking 500K. Joining other celebrities to Crowd Fund Kristen Bell, who successful campaign raked in a record-breaking $5.7 million on the Kickstarter campaign for the Veronica Mars movie. Zach Braff also successfully completed a $3M dollar campaign on Kickstarter.com.

FundAnything now features its first celebrity campaign with comedian Adam Carolla who is Crowdfunding his next movie, titled “Road Hard.”

When asked about deciding on which platform to run his Crowdfunding campaign. “It was a no-brainer” said Luis Sevilla, Owner of CelebrityCrowdfunding.com. “ While Fund Anything recently launched only two months ago, it was started by Learning Annex-founder Mr. Bill Zanker and is backed by the rich and famous Mr. Donald Trump. The incentive being that Mr. Trump has promised to promote selected campaigns through his Twitter account. As well as personally contributing to one or more projects that strike his fancy. Since the two portals visions are like-minded I believe FundAnyting is the most obvious portal.”

Despite the fact that the domain name CelebrityCrowdfunding.com is the best-suited name for the Celebrities Crowdfunding on the Internet the website still faces the same challenges of any new start-up. Including being an unknown and the lack of a huge marketing budget.

However the website is counting on its “out-of-box” and “not-to-be-seen” anywhere else in the Crowdfundiing industry content, features and programs to entice and persuade celebrities, fans and backers to visit and make use of the website.

Some of the website’s list of benefits or rewards called perks you will find:

  1. Pay-IT-Forward Program that “Gives Back” To Celebrity Backers!
  2. Complimentary Campaign Summary Reviews and Press Releases
  3. Celebrity “Crowd Booking” Crowd Fund & Book a Celebrity for Your Next Event
  4. Celebrity Campaign Rewards and Incentive Perks
  5. Celebrity Group or Private Chat
  6. Celebrity Cam 2 Cam
  7. Campaigns Built-in Digital Downloads
  8. On-site Celebrity Charity Auctions, Classifieds and more

By Robert Hoskins

They boast a fully online platform for making direct investments in real estate, allowing clients to review projects, fund investments and track them via computer, smartphone or iPad.

The electronic investment system claims to make iFunding a paper-free company. That’s right – all forms are digital. Investors will enjoy the convenience of iFunding’s state of the art technology while maintaining the ability to access institutional quality real estate investment opportunities for as little as $1,000.

The platform is geared toward accredited investors in the $1-5m range who lack access to private equity funds and may be frustrated with the volatility of REIT’s. The company focuses on assets that provide long term, stable income streams for their clients.

While truly online investing is reason enough to celebrate, there’s even more to embrace. iFunding has a team of professionals who have over 50 years’ experience in this field. They have worked with some of the largest corporations, such as JP Morgan Chase, Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank, and have been involved in over $2 Billion of transactions in numerous different roles. Their expertise and dedication in investing translates into professionalism and knowledge that is second to none.

William Skelley, founder of iFunding, shared in a recent interview that the idea for the company came to him from while working at the hedge fund Rose Park Advisors, a fund run by Harvard Business School professor Clayton Christensen, that focuses on making investments in companies that fit the framework of disruptive innovation. Mr. Skelley realized that real estate finance was a prime target to be disrupted, harnessing technology to simplify the investment process and make it extremely efficient.

Mr. Skelley had this to say about his company, “Our goal at iFunding is to utilize technology to streamline the process for our real estate investors. We prepackage everything to present the investor with a turnkey investment opportunity – we have in-house counsel, accountants and additional intellectual capital at no cost to the client. We do the legwork so our clients don’t have to. iFunding offers them the efficiency they want with the expertise and results they deserve.”
