A 19 year from Boston started an online fundraising site in January, 2011. His father, loaned him $250,000 for start-up (Must Be Nice!). The company has already earned ~$1.2 million, and expects to be well over $2million in revenue by the end of 2011. Nate Drouin (the 19 year old), purchased the fundraise.com domain for $40,000 from somebody who already owned the domain name. Nate says the site serves has a place where anyone can start their own charity or fundraiser, and anyone can donate. The company takes 7.5% of all donations (where revenue comes from). According to the article I read, the donation market is ~$25billion. The article is here: http://boston.cbslocal.com/2011/07/21/19-year-old-ceo-raises-1-2-million-for-boston-startup/ The site: http://www.fundraise.com Now the comments under the article are hating on this kid big-time because he got help from Daddy and his friends. But, what I'm interested in is waiting for this company to issue stocks so I can invest some mula. What do you think? Does this story anger you because of the help this kid received? Or does it motivate you to do something better?
