The Good Day Crowdfunding Show brings the buzz of a broadcast radio reality series and pits crowdfunders in a contest judged by crowdfunding industry thought leaders.  Entrepreneurs and businesses interested in raising capital, social lending and fundraising websites for their products, charity projects and creative ideas are invited to "pitch the experts" on the first crowdfunding radio reality series.

Contestants are first enrolled in the StartUp America Crowdfunding incubator, developed by direct response marketing expert and StartUp America News radio show host Mike Hayes.

Teleseminar participants interested in getting expansive exposure to a broadcast audience will enter elimination rounds for the Good Day Crowdfunding Show. Winners of the elimination rounds, or the Lion's Den, will present their campaigns to millions of listeners, on air with Doug Stephan and celebrity crowdfunding judges who will question and determine the weekly winner of the Good Day Crowdfunding Show.

In concert with teaching the principles of successful crowdfunding, last week the pre-launch platform was introduced where people could sign up to get news about the launch at This website provides the function to develop buzz and ultimately traffic for the crowdfunding campaign, the first step to developing a campaign. 

Danny Kastner, a previous contestant on The Apprentice, developed the online application that houses the Facebook-connected Good Day Crowdfunding social community. Crowdjammer is another example of how crowdfunding is exploding into online marketing and social media.

Doug Stephan's Good Day Show shifts into high gear in its 25th year of production with this revolutionary new show on crowdfunding. Together with Mike Hayes as co-host for the show, they have more than 50 years in the media marketing industry.

Our intention is to help boost the impact of crowdfunding on America's economy by creating and supporting crowdfunding success stories across any available platform. We want to enable anyone, anywhere to follow, and fund, their dream projects."

Doug Stephan shares, "The Good Day Crowdfunding team is led by broadcaster Mike Hayes and a great team of hand-picked crowdfunding experts. The fusion of radio and an online community with crowdfunding is an exciting vehicle, both for entrepreneurs launching new ideas, as well as listeners who are likely supporters. I can't wait to kick off Good Day Crowdfunding on the air for an entertaining and informative way to cover the best and most important stories about crowdfunding each day."

Additional team members include:

  • PR expert, Ronjini Mukopadhyay who has been central to several highly successful crowdfunding campaigns including StickNFind.
  • Entrepreneur Danny Kastner, who was a contestant on The Apprentice and has developed Crowdjammer, a crowdfunding community solution designed to drive campaign backers to any crowdfunding project
  • Social Impact Marketer Robin Eschler, host of Socially Conscious Investing online radio and pro in social lending, impact investing and online marketing.

Crowdfunding projects recently gained attention with the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act signed by President Obama with bipartisan support on April 5, 2012. Hundreds of crowdfunding websites have appeared since then and, according to Forbes growing from $1.5 billion to $3 billion in 2013, supporting businesses, growing companies and nonprofit causes. Crowdfunding has focused on bringing together volumes of people to contribute to projects, causes and even personal needs.
