One of them is http://www.RealityCrowdTV.com. I attended one of their online meetings today but unfortunately my microphone wasn't working in that system and so I really only watched it- but I found it very informative. I highly recommend it to anyone pursuing crowdfunding.
That said, and getting back to the statutory transformation of Maine, one of the details that previously went unregistered to my mind until I was composing A Maine's Citizen's Journey Through The Statutes of Transformation is that all of the funds stashed away in all of the state's corporations include a provision that says the fund can accept money from any source - such as corporations, foundations, private persons, foreign governments drug cartels, terrorists - OK ths latter two sounds extreme- but sadly it isn't since major banking institutions have been caught doing the same- why not Maine State Inc- when does Maine ever refuse money-from any one ? -which inevitably comes with strings attached. Would there be less government corruption risk if the government just did a crowdfunder !
Which raises the question, in the new era of crowdfunding, why does Maine need a big unconstitutional government corporate network to raise capital for the business picked for success by overlords?
The advantages of crowdfunding over government controlled capitalization are:
- Crowdfunding allows less leeway for corruption because the terms are stated as part of the project- no behind the scene negotiations.
- The people invest in their own free will instead of being involuntary investors in decisions made by unelected boards.
- The state will save considerably by deconstructing the bureaucracy needed to maintain and expand its central management of the Maine economy.
- Because the people are making the decisions as opposed to an overlord class, the economy has a chance of naturally evolving back to one which includes a healthy middle class.
- With a healthy middle class, and the deconstruction of central management of the economy, the free enterprise system will be re-instated , along with the Maine constitution.
