Yesterday’s Crowdfunding Seminar By CJ Cornell of Propel Arizona at SMAZ6


At yesterday’s Social Media Arizona #smaz there were many speakers covering different social media related topics and the one that interested me the most was the Crowdfunding seminar presented by CJ Cornell of Propel Arizona

CJ Cornell is an ASU Professor and the founder of Propel Arizona.

In a nutshell, Propel Arizona is a Crowdfunding platform for Arizona Entrepreneurs.

But it’s much more than funding, Propel Arizona is a way to get all of Arizona involved with innovation, and helping to build the next Google, Apple or Facebook.

Propel Arizona is a broad initiative designed to help drive economic growth in the state of Arizona by providing an environment where people can support and help the entrepreneurial ventures, innovative ideas, projects and the entrepreneurs that build them.

Online, Propel Arizona allows entrepreneurs with projects or ideas that one day may be wildly successful, to engage with the community and enlist their support – financial support and other kinds of important support.

Specifically, Propel Arizona is about “Crowdfunding” entrepreneurs and innovative projects that have the potential to become wildly successful – perhaps in the Facebook-Google-Amazon kind of way that generates jobs, wealth and inspires even more entrepreneurs and new ventures.

Members of the Arizona community can get involved with the excitment of the entrepreneurial startup – from concept to product to market – and become early funders of promising projects.  In the end, helping these potentially high-growth entrepreneurial projects become successful, will help contribute to the overall economic growth and prosperity of all Arizona.  Every Propel Arizona member gets to fill out their own profile page (1), can add projects needing funding and post a blog post promoting their projects.
