What is Crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding by Definition

"Crowdfunding is the practice of funding a project or venture by raising many small amounts of money from a large number of people, typically via the Internet."

Crowdfunding is facilitated through a website called a crowdfunding platform. These platforms offer people their own webpage where they can explain the project outcomes, outline the amount of money they need to reach these outcomes, set how many days their campaign will run for & collect money from supporters.

There are two foundations of crowdfunding; all-or-nothing and flexible funding;

Flexible funding allows project creators to receive anything that is raised at the end of their campaign regardless of their funding target.

All-or-nothing campaigns are only paid out If project creator reaches or exceed the funding target they set. If they don’t hit their target, they get nothing.

Different Types of Crowdfunding

There are 4 main types of campaigns.

Reward Based
Where you offer products, experiences or recognition in return for support

Debt based
Where you borrow money from supporters with the intention of paying it back

Where you offer equity and/or financial returns in exchange for support

Where you don’t offer anything in return
