An Introduction to Crowdfunding (1 of 3)
Crowdfunding has exploded in popularity in recent years and now represents approximately a fifth of all start-up funding worldwide. Unlike angel or venture capital (VC) funding, crowdfunding offers a way to test market demand, raise awareness of your business and attract new customers whilst raising the funds you need.
Despite the growth, two-thirds of crowdfunding campaigns fail due to common misconceptions and a lack of understanding.
