As the global economy transitions from labor based to knowledge-based, the need for dedicated office space and physical presence is diminishing and being replaced by virtual presence. A new generation of entrepreneurs has emerged, raised in the Internet age, that operate at the intersection of physical and virtual worlds giving rise to virtual incubators
ProjectCrowd is a pioneering a crowdfund incubator created to support and encourage wider collaboration between the entrepreneurs and their community, by connecting via crowdsourcing technology. A key component is to provide innovators and entrepreneurs with greater access to expertise, mentorship, customer introductions, funding and skills, regardless of their physical location.
