 White Paper
By  Antti Hannulaon August 3rd, 2010
 Venture BonsaiCrowdfunding and Growth Platform
 Venture Bonsai
is a platform for entrepreneurs to build online presence andenable them to receive funding from one or more professional or privateinvestors as well as f acilitate all the activities before and after the investment has taken place. Extensive use of web-enabled communication, reputation building and other tools offera unique platform for investors to follow,communicate with, invest in, and participate in the development of thosestartups they most believe in.
 What is Crowdfunding?
Crowdfunding is an alternate
approach to get investments for a start-up. Wikipediade
nes crowdfunding as
“  an approach to raising the capital required for a new project or enterprise by appealing to a group of people ( 
 guratively, "thecrowd ") for contributions
om one or many. When such an appeal is global it ismass funding .” 
Crowdfunding is not actually a new idea, as it has been developed over the last decademainly in the
lm and music industries. Unlike traditional models which rely on largecontributions from one or two institutions,
crowdfunding is based on raising small sumsfrom many people. Instead of raising 300,000
from three angels (100,000
each), youcollect 10,000
from 30 private investors.Crowdfunding isn’t going to replace venture capital, private equity, debt
nance or stock-markets. In many ways it’s an evolution of “friends and family” and angel” models, justoperating with greater transparency and on a larger scale. It may even turn out to be anessential and complementary part of the
nancing tools needed to cultivate and grow newbusinesses.
