  • P2P lending platforms: Alternative to bank loans with smaller interest rates (Acts as an enabler for loans) Kiva is very popular in developing countries: small loans to empower people Examples: Lenddo, Zopa, Kiva, LendingClub, Prosper, Funding Circle
  • Sites that enable the crowd to invest or fund services and products New way to secure investment Categories: Most Successful: Dance, Theater, Music, Art, Comics Most Popular: Film & Video, Music, Publishing, Art, Theater Most Money Raised: Film & Video, Music, Design, Games, Art Most Backers: Film & Video, Music, Games, Design, Technology Examples: Believersfund, Kickstarter, Indiegogo, Startup Addict http://www.appsblogger.com/kickstarter-infographic/
  • crowd-sourced guru finder - a systems that helps locate successful traders to follow and copy for investments
  • Idea lifecycle: http://www.quirky.com/products/327-The-Milkmaid-smart-milk-jug%20/timeline & http://ge.quirky.com http://www.gereports.com/this-milk-jug-passes-the-smell-test/ Intelligent milk container that measures milk’s pH, or how acidic or alkaline it is. The optimum pH level for milk is slightly acidic, or pH 6.7. When milk begins to spoil, it starts turning into acid and its pH drops. MilkMaid will turn on a red LED light and send you a milk “status” text message. An iPhone app delivers instantaneous milk updates wherever you are on how many cups of milk you have left, expiration date, and temperature The base of the jug contains a GSM radio module, antenna, battery, buzzer and a SIM card Crowdsourced: Ideas for Quirky & GE Garages: 1500+ contest ideas Product concepts and possibilities Votes on crowdsourced items (product design, product name, tagline, price): 2534 contributions
