Doug Stephan’s Good Day national talk show is inviting entrepreneurs to the largest crowdfunding pitchfest ever. The Good Day Crowdfunding Show brings the buzz of a broadcast radio reality series and pits crowdfunders in a contest judged by crowdsourcing industry thought leaders. Entrepreneurs and businesses interested in raising capital, social lending and fundraising websites for their products, charity projects and creative ideas are invited to “pitch the experts” on the first crowdfunding radio reality series.
Crowdfunding projects recently gained attention with the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act signed by President Obama with bipartisan support on April 5, 2012. Hundreds of crowdfunding websites have appeared since then and, according to Forbes growing from $1.5 billion to $3 billion in 2013, supporting businesses, growing companies and nonprofit causes. Crowdfunding has focused on bringing together volumes of people to contribute to projects, causes and even personal needs.
Good Day Crowdfunding has launched its own pre-launch to build community where crowdfunders can engage at http://GoodDayCrowdfunding.com. Inside the community is a unique incubator project, Startup America Crowdfunding, where participants are guided from start to finish through successful money-raising campaigns.
As part of the project, creators of the best ideas will get a shot on the Good Day Crowdfunding Show, to pitch their idea to millions in a fast-paced reality format. The incentive is simple: The better the idea, the more promotion and airtime to over 3MM daily listeners across the US and online.
Mike Hayes, current host of StartUp America News and an expert in entrepreneurship, working with thousands of entrepreneurs, has created the crowdfunding incubator and will serve as co-host. Hayes has more than 25 years in the media marketing industry.
“This new reality based radio program,” says Hayes, “is The American Idol of Crowdfunding. Our intention is to help boost the impact of crowdfunding on America’s economy by creating and supporting crowdfunding success stories across any available platform. We want to enable anyone, anywhere to follow, and fund their dream projects.”
