Television personality and businessman Donald Trump is set to announce Wednesday the launch of his latest venture—a crowdfunding site called FundAnything, which is designed to compete with leaders in the field like Kickstarter and IndieGoGo.
Like other properties associated with Mr. Trump, FundAnything uses "the Donald's" brand to promote Mr. Trump as much as it does the product itself.
"I'm giving away MONEY!" reads the banner beneath a photograph of Mr. Trump dressed in a black suit and gold tie.
A company spokeswoman said Mr. Trump is a financial partner but not a founder of the site, which lists as its creators Learning Annex founder Bill Zanker, and entrepreneurs Scott Tilson and Jeno Torocsik. Mr. Trump is a longtime featured lecturer at The Learning Annex, an adult education company.
