Begun with big hopes, crowdfund investing proves no bonanza

NEW YORK (AP) — Begun two years ago with some big hopes, the option for small businesses to court investors through crowdfunding hasn’t turned into the windfall its supporters predicted.

RSK: All that glitters is not gold, but it can help if you can get through the red tape. Go Fund Me is another avenue though there is no equity or shares for those that do so.
