A business, also known as an enterprise, agency, or a firm, is an entity involved in the provision of goods, services, or both to consumers.
With over a billion views and 2000+ videos uploaded, TED is a not just an idea it is a movement. TED stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design and was the brainchild of Richard Saul Wurman, who observed a convergence of these fields in 1984. With the slogan “Ideas worth sharing” TED has become the goto for information and inspiration from the world's leaders in the fields of not only technology, entertainment and design but also for science, culture, medicine and academics among others.
In much the same way as TED is about ‘ideas worth sharing’, crowdfunding is about ‘ideas worth funding’. Crowdfunding and TED share many similarities and one could almost say that they share the same DNA. Here are four TED Talks which I think every crowdfunding creator or backer should watch. They are also perfect for those curious about crowdfunding as they provide much insight and case studies.
Have you ever wondered what causes you to be attracted to something or someone? Why your curiosity is sparked by one thing and not another? The whole concept of crowdfunding solidified my fundamental belief about attraction and curiosity.
I have always believed that attraction and curiosity are forces within an individual that are fueled by what is at the very core of a person. We are attracted by what we value and become curious by that which we are already interested in. This was very true (and remains so) when I first discovered crowdfunding and why I continue to support it.
