Be a Crowdfounder – watch America come alive in miniature!
Big ideas can be found in small places ™ is not just one of our slogans for our educational theme park, it is the reality for all ideas. Things do start small and grow from there. As you may have read on the website, we advocate ideas and innovation, starting small.
For any idea to succeed, it will require some sweat equity and funding. All ideas, without funding, have a very little chance to succeed. Now, not everybody wants to or can invest large amounts into a project that they are interested in and or want to be a part of.
In this new day and age of technology, one of the benefits is the ability to reach (literally) billions of people who are connected on line. New industries and concepts have sprung up including micro-lending and crowdfunding. (Want to know more about crowdfunding see the links below.)
Crowdfunding has raised hundreds of millions of dollars for a variety of projects. Most of them are ideas by artists, start-up businesses and entrepreneurs. Some have even raised millions ‘in a few hours’. What’s most remarkable though, is the fact that the ‘sweet-spot’ is between $ 40.00 and $ 80.00, an amount that most of us can afford to support a project they like and or can be a part of. Why participate, well, similar to having your name included in a virtual game, Mini America gives you the opportunity to have a street, a square or avenue named after you. And that is only the beginning as we will offer billboards and other innovative ways to have your name included in our mini world.
So how can you support us? Be a crowdfounder for Mini America.
