Crowdfunding becomes crowd-developing with Big Viking Games’ Tiny Kingdoms

Who wants a free t-shirt or a measly “Thank You” note in the game credits for your hard-earned pledging dollars, when you could become a part of the actual development team yourself?

Raising Money For Startups & Getting A Jump On The Government

Raising Money For Startups & Getting A Jump On The Government

If you’re mixing social enterprise and regulatory change, the watchword is patience. Just ask Sang Lee.
