An investor allocates capital with the expectation of a future financial return. Types of investments include: equity, debt securities, real estate, currency, commodity, derivatives such as put and call options, etc. This definition makes no distinction between those in the primary and secondary markets. That is, someone who provides a business with capital and someone who buys a stock are both investors. An investor who owns a stock is a shareholder.

    @Gary Sharpe, although I follow you on beBee, this is the first I've seen this post. You and I have disagreed several times in the past, but this is not one of those times. I agree with you 100% that the business ideal needs to change, if a platform is to be built organically on a foundation of quality content and genuine engagement. And I suggested something similar recently in a discussion on @Samantha Bailey's group discussion for owners and managers of LI groups (on LI). Well, and truly said, @Gary Sharpe. I will be sharing this.

    What an astute idea. I love it!

    I seems the downfall on other social platforms was (and continues to be) the tweaking for various reasons...
    the Golden Egg Greed of seeing great writers post incredible content, realizing that many of these Influencers could generate incredible view, likes and resulting traffic, probably seeing $$$ ties, then quietly filtering out non-conforming voices via algorithm "enhancements" and hoping nobody would notice.

    As all bees know, many noticed.

    Those platforms deviated from their original purpose and went the way of mainstream media with news - beholden to their shareholders, not their stakeholders.

    Which are we, Bees?!!!

    Thank you @Gary Sharpe for sharing your relevant approach and uplifting commitments, as your trademark and represents initial evidence about what promises to be an important and fruitful phenomenon in the study of new ventures.
    Entrepreneurs who seek crowdfunding have to follow some clear lessons, because crowdfunding creates a useful window for the nascent entrepreneurial ventures :
    First, project quality is important by the ability to embrace and entrepreneurs should look for ways to signal preparedness. Social network ties have also been found to be important in crowdfunding.
    Second, appropriate goals are those that allow a founder to deliver a product on time; achieving significantly more funding than requested is rare. Most importantly, careful planning is required both to set these goals and to prepare for a crowdfunding success, which will entail a need to rapidly execute a promised venture.
    The exemplarity of the daily insightful demonstration done by beBee team's engagements is one key element of its sustainability perspective to secure and enlighten the concept of reward-based crowdfunding.

    I like the idea of equity crowd funding as well. It creates a genuine interest from the Shareholders. With that said transparency and timing is essential. Those that want to be a part of beBee need to be kept in the loop or should I say the hive. Anticipation is a great tool to hold on to those with true interest but too long of a wait can create doubt. From what I have seen, there is transparency but the stepping stones have yet to be put into place. I am very pleased with beBee and see nothing but a bright future.

    25 We have been discussing about this topic during a long time. We have several alternatives to fund the company; VCs, super angels and family offices, institutional private equity placements targeting structured funds, equity crowd funding and crowd funding itself.

    We truly would like to make an equity crowd. Funding initiative so to give the opporrunity to thousands of users to become beBee's shareholders.

    The equity crowd funding takes time and it is complex but at the same time would allow us to share our company with you. What yo you think guys?

    I do not think finance is currently a problem for beBee's Chairman and CEO.

    May I propose that ''TO MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE FOR EVERYDAY MAN AND WOMAN'' is one of beBee's objective statements. This is not an utopian statement, and if adopted needs to be further refined (via SMART framework) by well-meaning experts. Objective statements would set the ground for further expansion and finance strategy.

    If I'm not wrong, beBee's goal is not to build it up and sell it off at a price the founders cannot refuse. To make the world a better place for everyday man and woman, beBee's proceeds (profit) need to come from real products and services, NOT from stock trading and share price.

    I would prefer not seeing beBee inundated with ads.. We then become a prisoner to products that may not share beBee values. The founders of beBee having had previous successful exits, are very familiar with the process and resources available.. There are billions of dollars available via crowd funding. I'm sure that many Bees already have connections to the C - suites..
    Pascal Derrien
    05/07/2016 #36 Pascal Derrien
    Interesting and noble suggestion but I think this would be a time bounded or intermediate era only , beBee is not a social enterprise and while they have great values and mindset it needs volume and scale and for that they need investors with guarantee etc.. Now I am of the opinion that while the founders and the broader beBee team listens and integrates feedback it is up to them to define their strategy as they are the ones under financial pressure.


    As nota bene: please don't bring the Candice / Kardashian circus biz to beBee I know many are smitten I am not :-)

    Great piece and you open an interesting question. Having written for Yahoo and received payment based on views for my writing, obviously based on the adds they were also able to draw to those posts, I am wondering if there are a number of ways to make the platform liquid. I personally don't mind ads. Actually, I make my living full time at an agency, so digital ads aren't a bad thing in my world. But I hate retargeting on this kind of platform. Let's put those bee brains to work and come up with some ideas. I'm sure there are many that would work well and please most!

And sure there are many people willing to participate in them, if they only could know about those projects, not only with money, but with the advices, the resources, where to go, where to get what they need, even donate material, objects, machinery, second hand anythings... at least, the main and most important funds are here, the Bees, who want to do something different!

    #29 I have no idea Gary. I do know that Javier and Juan are not new to this game having already two successful exits behind them. I am sure their pitch carries unique differentiating factors. Let's face it, there are thousands of ways to potentially monetize. There are only a handful of ways to raise funding. I wasn't clear on your article whether you are suggesting ways to monetize or raise funds. For monetisation, paying for no ads might be a good idea, but probably not the best idea. For funding, crowd funding can only get you so far. If they want to compete with well funded established players, they will need third party funding, and eventually a public listing. That might change the dynamic yes, but we can pretty much rely on beBee staying true and putting users first.

    "Sterling sank to its lowest since 2013 against the euro. It briefly pared its losses as Bank of England Governor Mark Carney outlined more tools to contain the fallout from the U.K.’s decision to quit the bloc.

    I agree with all of your points 100%, @John White, MBA. I also think that it’s important to not only tell the investors how you’re going to solve an existing problem with your service or product but how you intend to tell potential users that they should use it or buy it. This means that having a communications and marketing plan that convinces investors that you are ready to convince others is also essential.
