Comments on: Why are cheap startups so expensive? http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2012/01/13/why-are-cheap-startups-so-expensive/ Where media and technology meet Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:48:25 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Thibaut http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2012/01/13/why-are-cheap-startups-so-expensive/#comment-391247 Mon, 16 Jan 2012 10:09:39 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/?p=33021#comment-391247 I believe that crowdfunding will be a part of the solution to give a new meaning and bring more transparency to investment! 
Many new players are showing up in the 4 main crowdfunging categories but unfortunately blogs only speak about very few one. 
Just to let you know that we will launch http://www.mymicroinvest.com by March 2012, A european based platform
concentrating on equity investments for innovative start-ups. 

Hope you will like it.

Interesting read but I think you mean $38 million with and M!

In the past years we have seen countless start ups design, develop, market and launch their networks on a shoe string budget.

Seems like there should be some accountability for where the dollars are spent.
