The NMEX CrowdFunding & CrowdPartnering Center (NCC) is an online Hub for NMEX users to access Crowdfunding & CrowdPartnering information and strategies. It also includes a powerful platform to CrowdFund and CrowdPartner projects by providing Nupits, gifts, In-Kind Goods & Services, other rewards, or combinations of such to project contributors.
Before considering Crowd Funding as a source of small amounts of project funding, it is important to realize that many times it may be easier and ultimately more beneficial to seek professional assistance in raising funds through private investors. If you have not exhausted all efforts to raise funding through professional sources you should contact NMEX Business Client Services to explore this possibility.
The Most Important NMEX CrowdFunding Service
As CrowdFunding becomes more visible, and as numerous players enter the CrowdFunding marketplace from all sides, it will be most important for entrepreneurs and potential CrowdFunding investors to become educated about investing in general. Investors must understand and develop the most important attribute of a successful retail investor, which is to understand and practice the doctrine of "Opportunity Cost" in their investment activities. NMEX offers some extremely important assistance to Investors in this process through its Trading & Investment Center, and its Investment Review Rating System. These NMEX services allow Investors to understand and rate investment opportunities, particularly CrowdFunding investment opportunities, and how they rate and compare to many other investments available in the marketplace. No investment in any CrowdFund should ever be made without such reviews.
CrowdFundng has become an important possibility for small businesses, inventors, and creative artists to raise small amounts of money to fund their projects. There are many options in CrowdFunding and many online CrowdFunding sites each with their unique and beneficial features. As a Business Exchange NCC provides its own CrowdFunding platform, however raising money for business projects may require the entrepreneur to seek as many sources of funding as possible. Entrepreneurs should utilize any source of funding available, and the information in NCC and NMEX generally can be used to further your fundraising efforts from a number of sources. NCC includes information from several different CrowdFunding sources. Entrepreneurs should review, evaluate and use as many of them as possible.
An important element of NCC is utilization of the powerful management and marketing tools available through NMEX, notwithstanding which CrowdFunding platform(s) utilized. To increase market reach any Crowdfunding projects and campaigns may be listed on NMEX so long as they do not violate SEC rules or the rules of their primarily Crowdfunding platform.
Only NMEX Listed Company and MarketMaker subcribers are allowed to CrowdFund on NMEX. NMEX CrowdFunding is free to these subscribers with no additional fees or costs required unless additional marketing and consultation is desired. If the NMEX CrowdFunder utilizes the NMEX System to deposit and distribute the Funding there will be a fee of 3% of the gross funded amount deducted as a NMEX administration and handling fee. This administrative fee can be avoided by the CrowdFunder having the Funds directly deposited to their account.
NCC is primarily a Rewards Based CrowdFunding Center. Equity or securities based crowdfunding is not allowed at this time. Registrants CrowdFunding on NMEX should not promise or provide any securities, equity or ownership in their project for any donation, contribution or other funding.
Companies or projects seeking Equity Based Crowdfunding can utilize the Equity Crowdfunding Support Services Package offered through the NMEX Business Client Services Center. The NMEX Equity Crowdfunding Support Services Package is specifically designed to provide a source of affordable services to satisfy SEC compliance requirements for Issuers raising funds under the Title II and III Equity Based Crowdfunding laws and regulations.
The four major types of crowdfunding
1. Equity Based Crowdfunding: Investors receive some ownership in the company.
2. Donation Based Crowdfunding: Contributions go towards a charitable cause.
3. Lending Based Crowdfunding: Investors are repaid for their investment over a period of time.
4. Reward Based Crowfunding: Investors receive tangible items or services in return for their funds or In-Kind contributions of goods & services.
CrowdPartnering & Venturing
CrowdPartnering or Venturing is similar to CrowdFunding except that instead of monies being contributed, products, and services are contributed to the development of the project by entities who partner or joint venture with the project or business seeking assistance. CrowdPartnering can be as effective or more so in assisting in the development of a project or business in that it may be easier to accomplish, and in the case of an active partnership arrangement provide valuable expertise and services not otherwise available. Unlike most CrowdFunding Platforms NMEX focuses much of its Business Development efforts in this arena.
Special features of the NMEX Crowdfunding and CrowdPartnering platform afford utilization of the NMEX Voucher system, the NMEX User Point System (NUPITS), and the NMEX Contracts System which allows for accessing In-Kind goods & services through the Crowdfunding and Partnering process.
All NMEX rules and dispute resolution processes must be strictly followed by NMEX CrowdFunders. CrowdFunders must also follow all applicable laws and Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC) rules and regulations.
