Fab, Square, Couchsurfing...do you use these startups? I do, every time I need a cute t-shirt (Fab's got me covered), a latte down at my local cafe (Square), or a place to hang my hat in a distant city (Couchsurfing). But beyond these startups' everyday utility, they are also fund-raising powerhouses.
In this month's focus on fundraising, we've taken a look at the basics of fundraising and what types of funding sources you might consider for your business. We also looked at the great amount of resources that are available to you through the Small Business Administration (SBA).
So now, just for fun, let's take a look at these three players, who are actively working to disrupt the ecommerce, payments and travel industries. Their phenomenal funding success stories can teach the rest of us quite a bit -- even if we're working in decidedly more modest operations.
