Crowdfunding

To step out of your comfort zone, to live your passion, to fulfill your desired goal, all you need is funds or capital. Traditionally, if you want to raise capital to start a business or launch a new product, you would need to pack up your business plan, market research, and prototypes, and then shop your idea around to a limited pool or wealthy individuals or institutions. These funding sources included banks, angel investors, and venture capital firms, really limiting your options to a few key players. You can think of this fundraising approach as a funnel, with you and your pitch at the wide end and your audience of investors at the closed end. Fail to point that funnel at the right investor or firm at the right time, and that’s your time and money lost.

Here comes the helping hand for you, Crowdfunding.

 

What is Crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a method of raising capital through the collective effort of friends, family, customers, and individual investors. This approach taps into the collective efforts of a large pool of individuals—primarily online via social media and crowdfunding platforms. Most of these campaigns happen via internet platforms, and have set timeframes for when money can be raised and disclose specific monetary goals.
