Last week, I wrote about crowdfunding and whether or not it’s here to stay. I was curious about people’s actual experiences with crowdfunding, so I interviewed two entrepreneurs who successfully financed their own projects doing so. The first is Cameron Robertson, a co-founder at Apigy Inc., who created and independently crowdfunded Lockitron, a smartphone-controlled door lock, and also created Selfstarter, an open crowdfunding platform. The second entrepreneur is Sonny Vu, the CEO of Misfit Wearables, who makes The Shine, a subtle personal activity tracker was successfully crowdfunded on Indiegogo. The entrepreneurs discussed the definition of crowdfunding, their experiences crowdfunding and the reasons for their success.
