For anyone who missed it, Kingscrowd is hosting a two-part piece we did on Crowdfunding startups. We used the Cloudastructure experience as a direct example in Part 2.
If you want a reasonable summary of the different types of crowdfunding mechanisms and the nitty gritty of what it takes for a startup to crowdfund, this may serve as a ready guide. https://kingscrowd.com/a/369/the-new-way-to-raise-startup-capital-part-1
