GLENDALE, Calif., Oct. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Move over Kickstarter... the new king of crowdfunding is Donald Trump. In less than three months, the billionaire's FundAnything.com has become the fastest crowdfunding website to raise over $1 million for a single project. Now Trump is upping the ante by offering a $1 million reward to the first person who uses FundAnything.com to break the all-time crowdfunding record.
"If you have a great idea, FundAnything is one of the best ways to raise money that I've ever seen," explained Trump. "So I'm giving away $1 million to the first person who raises more than the $10,181,000 that Pebble Watch raised on Kickstarter. I want the whole world to know how fast and easy it is to raise money this way."
Crowdfunding has been one of the fastest growing areas on the Internet. Last year, sites like FundAnything and Kickstarter raised more than $3 billion for business and creative ideas, charitable causes, community projects and personal needs. Over $5 billion is expected to be crowdfunded in 2013.
"Right now there's someone out there with a great idea and a burning desire to be the next Steve Jobs," added Trump. "I want that person to know I've got one million reasons why FundAnything is the best place to turn that dream into a reality."
Bill Zanker, who co-founded FundAnything with Donald Trump concurred, "I'm issuing a call to action for entrepreneurs everywhere. We are looking for the next BIG idea. Whether that's a tech project, a smart gadget, an app, game, or a startup. Donald and I want to give you a million dollars. We are blowing crowdfunding wide open for everyday people. The reign of Kickstarter's Brooklyn hipsters is over."
