Entrepreneurs today are fortunate to have tools that can help their startups, such as social media, incubators, mentors and crowd funding.
Crowd Funding is the practice of funding a project or venture by raising many small amounts of money from a large number of people, typically via the Internet
If you have an idea or a small business, Kiskckstarter is your best place to post about your project and the fund you are looking to raise. Luckily, the Middle East is no different than the rest of the world. Today we have two shakers in the market: Eureeca and AfkarMENA. They are taking the region by storm. 19 startups have benefited from Eureeca, where some of them have managed to over fund just in a 2 or 3 months period. The website is user friendly, you can connect with investors and increase your network of investors and mentors. AfkarMENA is a reward-based online platform for all your creative ideas. Whether you have a new game to develop, a music album to release, or want to start an NGO, AFKARMENA will help make that happen. I have started a project at AfkarMENA for my NGO “Under My Olive Tree” Education Program to raise fund for less fortunate students in Jordan. For more info check the link

Have connected with you from Twitter. Will keep you in mind if I ever need someone to help with fund raising…
We have tried Crowdfunding on Indiegogo but it appears our idea is not unique enough to get people interested. Or we did not market it enough. It is still live (just about). https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/info-tech-to-encourage-health-happiness#home
