THE ‘NEW AMERICAN DREAM’

SPRINGFIELD, MO, March 6, 2013
New American Dream,
is launching an entirely new approach to crowdfunding with a clear mission
to extend beyond just funding by incorporating much-needed expert advice, peer review, collaboration and business networking into the core functionality of the site. CrowdItdiffers from other sites, because it focuses on tapping the collective power of the crowd to createthe support system people need to turn their ideas into a reality.
“Our vision for crowdfunding
is about helping people achieve their dreams
be it starting a new business, developing a new invention or creating a technology start-up
and leveraging the power of the crowd beyond just
the funding event,” said Jason Graf, co
-founder and CEO for
CrowdIt. “We think the business networking possibiliti
es alone can transform crowdfunding intoa true economic engine that is ready to jumpstart new enterprises of all kinds. Obviously, withcrowdfunding incorporated into the federal JOBS Act,
the government believes it as well.”

Supporting the New American DreamIn the wake of the Great Recession, many Americans, and people around the world, have lostfaith in many of the core beliefs that helped build the original American Dream. The real estateand financial services industries imploded, middle-class supporting jobs vanished, the higher-education system is in question, and a drop in confidence has left many people feeling less thanhopeful and far from optimistic. The founders of CrowdIt see crowdfunding as an opportunity tore-ignite the core ideals that defined America from its beginning
self-reliance, community,innovation and determination
as a means of re-defining the New American Dream.
