Crowdfunding is an increasingly popular way of financing projects, business ideas, charity and loans through small contributions from a large number of individuals.
The collaborative power of crowdfunding can stimulate the economy, democratise financial systems, create new and better jobs, foster innovation and entrepreneurship, strengthen civil society, and help local communities flourish.
Crowdfunding is a way of raising funds via specialist online platforms in a climate where raising funds for projects, loans and business ideas through business angels or traditional lending from banks is hard. There are concerns on regulation, scams and fraud that need to be watched.
There is confusion on the differences between equity, debt, donation, reward and revenue based models. The UK is the most advanced country in the world for equity crowdfunding.
The potential for use with or instead of traditional lending is huge and is a real new alternative to banks and venture capitalists as their traditional role as gatekeepers to finance is undermined.
