Brad McGee – Co-Founder of iCrowd
Brad McGee has created an equity based crowd funding platform, something desperately needed! There seems to be a multitude of crowdfunding platforms coming to the surface, each with its own competitive advantage. Of course, there are the crowdfunding monsters like Kickstarter and Indiegogo, but on the niche side of things, smaller platforms exist that offer specialty services that offer value to specific fundraisers. Brad McGee has positioned himself in such a way. His crowdfunding platform, iCrowd, offers an entrepreneurial social network that runs in conjunction with their crowdfunding services. This is designed to encourage establishing relationships with mentors/mentees, investors, partners, ect. Brad comes on to talk a little about what he has done to be heard in a very noisy marketplace as well as his plans for future growth.
