Techcrunch article on Trampoline crowdfunding

By Trampoline Systems | Wednesday, August 12th, 2009

Yesterday night, as the Perseid meteorites streaked through Earth’s atmosphere, Techcrunch.com published a provocative article on Trampoline’s decision to “jump the VC ship” and raise finance via crowdfunding. Techcrunch has established itself as the journal of record for tech startups and the venture capital industry so this was bound to create a bit of a stir.

In the immediate aftermath of the Techcrunch article Trampoline’s crowdfunding website was visited by 1,500 people from 70 countries around the world and 200 people posted messages to their networks via Twitter. Many of the comments came from entrepreneurs applauding the example Trampoline is providing of an alternative to VC.
