With 40 plus million people on unemployment and according to a survey by Main Street America, 7.5 million small businesses are at risk of closing in the coming months, it is critical that we all make an effort to inject much-needed capital into already established small and medium-sized businesses as quickly as possible, and Crowdfunding is the process that can help make that happen.
