    Hi guys, ************************ I love the forums.

    I had a feeling you’d find this thread if you were paying attention; happy to see that you are. I hope you’ll send us an update sometime down the line when Feral Horses is fully operational. As you have read, some of us think this could be a viable business plan, and crowdfunding is certainly a unique approach to investing in art.

    Best of luck, whippersnapper!

    You guys are getting dogged by all these uptight docs (minus a few). Ignore. I love startup spirit. Hope you find success. Come to me in 10 years when (hopefully) I have a good bank and I’ll throw money no problem. Like the idea actually.

    Also, whatever you do, don’t send me United tickets…

    Thank you for the nice words

    Hi PoF, we try to do a bit of listening when we can

    As for the crowdfunding, there is already something in the art market but they approach it as a rewards-based crowdfunding. Meaning that you are the artist and you want to do something, you ask me for money and in exchange, you give me maybe a t-shirt or something. But then, when you make the artwork and you sell it, I have nothing left but the t-shirt, and you almost sold the artwork twice, one before and one after.

    Our approach is more equity-crowdfunding-ish, making the whole concept more viable for investors.

     

    I will get back in touch some time in the future, hopefully

    Hi guys, ************************ I love the forums. The discount JD honestly made me laugh but it’s not the first time I hear about it tho. The Pedro bit was way more creative: touche.

     

    Sorry to say that we have no budget for tickets to the UK, nor that we will operate in the US straight at launch, our marketing dep must have emailed the wrong blog, it happens ?

     

    Still I found a lot of food for thoughts in your comments, and I thank you for that. I decided to get involved because I believe that we can get some brutal feedbacks here and boy we need them. So here I am you can ask whatever you want, I’ll do my best to get back with something that makes sense.

    This would definitely make an intriguing pro/con post or a fun travelogue. I look forward to reading more about this feral alternative investment.

    This is fantastic.

    Don't judge a thread by it's title. That said, I'd not have expected this conversation had the thread been self titled as "feral horses" either.

    Humor aside, I can see real value from participating from such a trip. The world needs both boring business ideas (someone has to make paperclips) and those that break the mold a bit - especially the open new markets, or expand access to existing ones.

    Best part

    "How do you prevent the artworks from being stolen?


    Feral Horses has worked hard to develop a “secret weapon” to protect its artworks against thieves and forgers. For security reasons, Feral Horses cannot explain nor disclose the processes in place. But, by having this point in our FAQs we want to let you know that we have carefully considered this potential issue and that the risks will be mitigated."




    Spooky

    Okay, let’s try it.

    If you’re at all serious about going to the UK to check this out, you probably want to delete this thread. I don’t think “Discount Johnny” and his mates are going to be particularly pleased when they look to see where their traffic is coming from, and read the responses.

    Personally, I think the guy on the right looks more like Pedro from Napolean Dynamite.

    I was actually thinking the exact same thing!  The sooner the better for deleting...definitely before the sun rises in London.

    I doubt anybody would mind being censored for a good cause.  That said, I suspect they've spent available money on clothes and beard grooming supplies, but who knows?

    Vote for Pedro!

    Discount Johnny Depp really bothered me, I just dont see him being a good steward of capital. They look like they have expensive tastes and think highly of themselves, no thanks.

    Thanks visoriano, I forgot about the whippersnapper! I hope WCI and Vagabond can negotiate a free UK trip out of the feral horse whippersnappers. I would enjoy reading a post on their fact finding mission.

    Did you see the photoes of the four esteemed art founders on their web site? If you click on the screen around each of their four pictures it shows a picture of each of them that looks like they’re passing gas or having a valsalva maneuver. I’ve never seen any business website that showed the four founders passing flatus before. Maybe that ties in with their business name “feral horses.” Perhaps you both should take a gas mask WCI and Vagabond MD, or at least carry a can of air freshener with you for your on site visit!
