Crowdfunding is a great way to get early stage funding for any venture. Crowdfunding platforms like Kickstarter have an profound impact on getting businesses, products and services launched. Crowdfunding is rapidly gaining momentum and shows no signs of slowing down. Crowdfunding has helped raise billions for all types of businesses including art, theatre, photography, charity, retail, fashion, gaming, real estate and much more.
Crowdfunding makes all types of entrepreneurship accessible to those who want to start their own business. In a time when banks have become more nervous than ever before, crowdfunding has become a democratized method of raising money for many entrepreneurs. Many crowdfunding campaigns seek small amounts of money (often less than $1000) to fund a variety of projects and businesses.
