"Crowd appeal is the ultimate arbiter," said Edward Derrick, a program director at the American Assn. for the Advancement of Science in Washington, D.C.

Interest: What crowdfunding backers like best, the merchants said, is getting access to something special, something unavailable to the general public. This can either be fairly simple — Macaron Parlour offered those who donated $25 a box of macaroons with four custom flavors — or elaborate, like the special cooking class that the restaurant Travail Kitchen & Amusements offered its $500 backers.

Interest: Investors are clearly thinking of Africa based on recent developments, including the 16 Botswana-based mobile apps that Jim Goetz spoke of when he gave his view on the WhatsApp purchase by Facebook and the alliance Microsoft has forged with three African incubators. This is also signified by the setting up of new innovation centers in Lagos and Casablanca by IBM and the summit sponsored by the African Development Bank which tackled ways to effectively engage the private sector, the report said.

Interest: It’s a good thing for the Obama administration that it’s part of the federal government. Otherwise, investigators from one of the federal agencies — SEC, IRS, Justice, whoever — might be demanding to know more details on its venture capital activities. Venture capitalists are guys like Mitt Romney who raise money to buy out businesses or back new ones. For this Romney was villainized no end in the presidential campaign.
