Traditionally, launching a product required investors, and investors required some form of proof-of-concept. It was a chicken-and-egg problem: How could you prove your concept without some start-up capital? How could you get start-up capital without investors?

For the average person, there were only two solutions:
  1. Put all of your life savings at risk, or
  2. Give up your dream.

America 2029, in conjunction with rapidly changing technology, changes the rules of the game.

America 2029 takes advantage of the innovations known as Crowd Funding and Crowd Sourcing. Crowd Funding lets your customers invest in your product before it is created. Crowd Sourcing lets your customers design and even create the product for you, exactly the way they would like it.

At some point, you will need to decide: Do I want to create my own company, or do I want to work for somebody else and focus on what I do best?

In the past, creating your own company was very risky. America 2029 changes that.

In the past, working for somebody else meant that they controlled your life. America 2029 changes that.

If you already have your own company, or if you are already happily employed, you can still fulfill the New American Dream, or American Dream 2029, without giving up what you already have.
