f you’ve ever heard the term “crowdfunding” you probably first think of an entrepreneur hoping to generate money online for a brilliant new idea for a must-get-to-market product. The creator has a prototype, writes up a snappy business plan, gets the information online, and hopes to generate small donations from lots of people to see the plan turn into reality. It’s similar to the newer GoFundMe campaigns we see online for those in need or to raise money for a social cause. But what about crowdfunding in the real estate market? It may now be possible for individuals to invest in big multi-million dollar real estate investments, without giving millions that they (probably) don’t have. Some companies are now looking for numerous investors for large real estate projects and are opening up the opportunity to create wealth for people who would previously not have been able to be at the table at all. On certain platforms, individuals may need only several thousand dollars to have a share in a real estate investment. With a lower risk of loss, more and more people seem to be interested in dipping their toe in the real estate investment market. A visit to RealtyShares. com or RealtyMogul.com can help you learn more about how the process works. If you qualify to be an investor, a portfolio of investment opportunities becomes available for your review. Once you choose a property you would like to invest in, you commit funds to the private deal and hope for returns in the near future. An interesting idea for those looking to diversify their investments. Of course, for most people, the real estate market simply means saving to buy one’s own home. And crowdfunding has also been playing a role in how some get a down payment for their home, particularly their first home. Rather than wedding gifts or other presents they may receive on different occasions, people have started a real estate registry, per se, to collect money for a down payment on a home (see HomeFundMe.com for details on how it works). Hey, if you’re spending hundreds on a wedding gift, who wouldn’t prefer to give money toward something as important as a home rather than a place setting of china that will just gather dust? For those who are looking to add to a down payment they may have saved up already, this may be an interesting idea. Just make sure you do your due diligence!

ow is a great time to be a space enthusiast! After the moon landing almost 50 years ago, it began to feel like space exploration was sort of a thing of the past. But thanks to entrepreneurs and dreamers such as Elon Musk (of Tesla and SpaceX fame) and Sir Richard Branson (of everything Virgin), as well as a revitalization of NASA programs, trips to the moon and Mars may be in the near future. In fact, some experts say humans will be on Mars as soon as 2030! Recently, Musk’s company SpaceX launched the world’s most powerful rocket and even sent his own red Tesla Roadster into orbit (yes, it’s still up there and will be for millions of years). And while SpaceX is forging ahead in the field of space exploration, other private companies are pushing the envelope as well. Blue Origin is another private space company that is creating reusable, vertically landing space rockets. The company envisions millions of people living and working in space. For now, Blue Origin has built the New Shepard rocket, which may soon be available for space tourists. Their model allows for an 11-minute trip to space in which travelers can experience weightlessness, enjoy tremendous views, and land back to earth in a capsule. You can watch videos of an actual launch with a test dummy dubbed “Mannequin Skywalker” on board at BlueOrigin.com.

Virgin Galactic—headed by Sir Richard Branson—is another vanguard company hoping to open space travel to everyone

Pompeii: The Exhibition

rather than just a select few astronauts. Touting itself as the world’s first commercial spaceline, Virgin Galactic uses what they call a reusable SpaceShipTwo spaceflight system. After three days of training, Virgin’s future astronauts will be ready to take the trip to space to experience weightlessness and have unprecedented views of Earth. These everyday astronauts will then, according to Virgin, be part of the most exclusive group of adventurers in the world. NASA is currently working on getting humans back to the moon for further exploration and is aiming to get humans to Mars, as well. A key element to all these new rocket designs is the ability to reuse the equipment again and again, so the exorbitant costs and wastefulness of previous space endeavors will be avoided. With private companies working alongside NASA, the years to come should prove to be an exciting time for space discovery and technological advancements. We’re excited to be along for the ride!
