Reality Crowd TV Announces Worldwide Contest to Determine the Host Nation of Its Next TV Tour

Announces Contest Rules, Ambassadors in United Kingdom and China, and Global Crowdfunding Vision

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 01/06/14 -- Reality Crowd TV (, a new reality TV program hosted by Manolis Sfinarolakis and Jessica Sun, announced a global contest to allow countries to compete against each other in order to determine which nation will host the second season of "Reality Crowd TV: The World Tour."

"We have opened sourced Reality Crowd TV's next worldwide tour and our mission," said Manolis Sfinarolakis, Reality Crowd TV's Founder. "Our mission is to inform, educate, inspire, and motivate entrepreneurs worldwide to start small businesses through crowdfunding and to provide a blueprint on how to crowdfund through our TV show in countries all around the world."

Crowdfunding is an alternative finance tool that has become a worldwide phenomenon. Crowdfunding platforms in the United Kingdom and Australia currently lead the pack, but Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Greece, Israel, Mexico, Netherlands, and Spain are quickly accelerating their efforts to build crowdfunding industries in their countries in order to spur economic development.

"The demand for crowdfunding programming to educate the masses on how to build crowdfunding platforms as well as how to research, plan, launch and market successful crowdfunding campaigns has become intense in the United States," said Jessica Sun, Reality Crowd TV's CEO. "Many countries have requested that our team bring a crowdfunding TV tour to their geographic location, but with the limited resources that we have on hand, our team decided to hold a voting competition to see which country the Reality Crowd TV crew will visit first. The country that casts the most votes on our soon to be launched Indiegogo or Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign will be selected to host our 2nd Reality Crowd TV nationwide tour."

"Crowdfunding is still a relatively new concept that really needs to be exposed and shown off to the world. It is amazing what it can do for those wishing to start up their own businesses and has done wonders for so many companies across the world. We see crowdfunding as a truly collaborative experience," said Ryan Cole, Reality Crowd TV's United Kingdom Ambassador.

"The thing I love the most about crowdfunding is the ability that it has to bring people together, to establish new connections and also to forge real friendships with people that otherwise would not get a chance to meet. Crowdfunding is an absolute gold mine just waiting to be tapped by small-to-medium-sized enterprises, musicians, artists or anyone who has an idea that they feel is worth sharing. That for me is truly inspiring," said Joshua Fairbairn, Reality Crowd TV's China Ambassador.

Each contributor, regardless of the size of contribution, during the upcoming "Reality Crowd TV: The American Tour" crowdfunding campaign will be placing a vote to determine which nation will become the host of the second season of "Reality Crowd TV: The World Tour."

After you have your data under control, you can then analyze it in one place, saving time and resources.
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...
