The discussion of crowdfunding and VCs is a much deeper (and wonderfully debatable) discussion. Without a doubt, being a part of the crowdfunding ecosystem gives the participating VCs a first-hand opportunity to engage with those start-ups that they would normally not engage with, as well as access market reaction and acceptance of  products. A great way to see if the idea sticks!

As we know the 2nd one was quickly bought up by Facebook  for 2 billion dollars
