GE Ventures Embraces Crowdfunding, Partners with OurCrowd — Earlier this week, another big player joined the crowdfunding ranks, as Israeli platform OurCrowd announced that it has signed a co-investment agreement with GE Ventures, the corporate venture capital arm of GE. According to the agreement, GE Ventures will have the right to co-invest with OurCrowd in early stage companies on the platform.

Massolution recently published the 2013CF Crowdfunding Market: Software and Solutions Report. It is a definitive guide to available crowdfunding software and solutions providers. This report will guide you to the choices for building the platform you want, whether it is for donations, rewards, lending, equity, or royalty; whether it is a new site, an addition to an existing one, or a single campaign; whether you do it yourself or hire a provider.
