There are numerous crowdfunding platforms available like Indiegogo, Kickstarter, and several others. On these platforms, contributions are sought in return for special compensation. While each site offers its unique terms, the general concept is the same across all the platforms.
Crowdfunding can also be used to collect royalty financing and loans. Many sites allow members to directly invest in and borrow from each other, eliminating the banking agent in the transaction.
The idea is to bring investors and business owners together. It also proposes to auction ownership stakes or company shares on crowdfunding sites, just like a primary public offering without the limitations.
A successful crowdfunding campaign not only gives a business with required money but also builds a base of customers who feel they must patronize the business because they have a stake in its success. Crowdfunding has an enormous advantage to a starting entrepreneur but it is not without its perks.
