The Fastest-Growing Crowd Funding Platform for
School Sports Program Fundraising,
and other sports, fitness and health related projects.
Kick your project into gear and achieve your goals with A KickIn Crowd.
Sports is the primary focus of this site. Although we accept and promote all forms of funding, we fill the void KickStarter leaves out. KickStarter does not host sports teams, fitness products, health related and other sports related projects on their crowdfunding site. We do!
"Kick in" means to pitch in, or all get together and help towards a common goal. A KickIn Crowd gives your dream a place to thrive. This platform helps you gather the funds you need to achieve your goals.
A KickIn Crowd Founder, Tony Reynolds, has assembled a team of highly capable executives from the fields of Sports, Technology, and Business to help guide A KickIn Crowd through it's infancy. It is our mission and our passion to see you get your dreams funded!
A KickIn Crowd Platform Technology model was created by Tony Reynolds, who has extensive experience in media and entertainment, as well as some experience in media finance.
In the early 1990's Reynolds was quoted by BILLBOARD Magazine stating the music industry would be changed forever by the internet. He was one of the first using the early version of the internet and saw the potential paradigm shift the internet would bring to the music industry. Reynolds determined early on that if users can send data, like music, sales of music would eventually be mass produced and shipped via the internet.
Today, Reynolds feels that the crowdfunding model will immediately replace slow Venture Capitalists, Hedge Funds and eventually Banks in lending. Reynolds sees crowdfunding as a viable and necessary funding mechanism where funding for today's independent projects have been largely ignored by Venture Capitalists, and big banks.
Reynolds has experience in general finance having worked in the Office of Finance of a major insurance company for many years. During his time there he won several awards for excellence and for the Nationwide Arena's orignal website.
The State of Ohio recognized his internet abilities with a Proclamation in his name.
Reynolds has released records, authored several books, and produced television including for the U.S. Olympic Trials, as well as worked on nationally released films. Reynolds and his work has appeared and been featured in:
Oprah.Com, ESPN, ABC News Now, FoxNews.Com, Forbes, Fox Sports, Fox Soccer Channel, Parents Magazine, Billboard Magazine, Universal Sports Channel, NBC, Associated Press, Vanity Fair, CBS Early Show, MSNBC, Yahoo News!, The Daily Beast, Politico, Conan, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and hundreds of other national and international media outlets.
A KickIn Crowd is located at 1275 Kinnear Road in the Tech Columbus Building on The Ohio State University West campus.
In 2010 A KickIn Crowd was originally founded by Tony Reynolds as a film funding platform. The laws at the time would not allow it to this business to proceed.
In 2011, as passage of the JOBS ACT became more likely, Reynolds resumed his vision of a crowd funding platform. This time Reynolds focused on funding for athletes, sports teams, school sports fundraising and other sports/ fitness projects.
In 2012 A KickIn Crowd 1.0 was released.
In 2012 Reynolds was a participating member of the 2012 Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Government-Business Forum on Small Business Capital Formation that drafted recommendations for JOBS Act implementation by the SEC.
In 2013 the final SEC document was released on the SEC website naming Reynolds as participating member.
