The domain name FundAnything.com, is now the centerpiece of Co-owners Donald Trumps new “kicker starter like” funding 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.”
“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.”
As a domain investor, this is certainly a worst case nightmare scenario.
Selling a highly brandable domain for $2,500 only to find the buyer is one of the richest guys in the world and going to be used for his latest big project.
This is certainly the poster child case of selling a brandable for way to little and leaving an mega yacht sized amount of money on the table.
