David Parrish has a web site and a blog that are worth checking out especially if you are in the business of creativity.

A recent blog entitled "Raising Finance from Fans" took my interest.This from David's blog:

"Raising finance from loans or investments can be a major challenge for all types of businesses, and it’s especially difficult when credit is scarce and investors are feeling the pinch. So any alternative ways of raising funds are worth exploring.
Enterprises in the creative, cultural and digital sector have creativity at the centre of their products and services, yet don’t always apply that same creativity to the business side of things, such as marketing, leadership or finance. But some do. True ‘creative entrepreneurs’ are not just creative people doing business – they are creative with business too. Some of these creative entrepreneurs - especially in music and film - are exploring innovative ways of raising serious amounts of money by asking lots of people for modest investments. This
‘Crowd-Financing’ approach can be labelled ‘Fan-Financing’ when fans are the focus for investments." More on his web site and blog.
