More startups tap crowdfunding over venture capital


    Caribu co-founder Max Tuchman knew she had to get creative when she began raising seed funding for the Miami startup.

    That was especially clear after a meeting with a venture capital firm in 2019. The firm was interested in investing, but asked for too much equity in exchange for that capital, she said. Tuchman wanted to get her interactive video platform for children off the ground, but she knew she couldn’t accept the offer.
