What is Crowdfunding?
The name Crowdfunding is misleading. There is no "crowd" out there just waiting to "fund" your project. Generally, crowdfunding or crowdsourcing refers to the collective, cooperative networking and pooling of financial resources via the Internet to support a cause, startup business, or social enterprise. Basically, leveraging small contributions from many parties. Crowdfunding is used to create viral online campaigns that raise awareness, fundraise, friendraise, build buzz, and generate support for a particular project.
