Crowdfunding Raised $34 Billion in 2015
No-one has come out with definite figures for 2016 as yet but past studies show that it is more than doubling each year. By the end of 2016, the overall crowdfunding industry was on track to account for more total funding than the average annual investment from the venture capital industry. The World Bank has predicted $90B by 2020 but as things are going it will go way past that.
CrowdFunding is a new form of non-traditional finance that is raising hundreds of millions in the UK every year for businesses. It is an old concept given new life with the internet. This has now become a huge trend benefitting any person, startup or business looking for ways to unlock funding for new and innovative projects benefiting not only the project creators but those they serve as well.
This is a new source of available cash. Crowdfunding by definition is actually asking a crowd of people to donate or invest a defined amount of money for a specific cause or project in exchange for various rewards. This allows businesses ideas and startups to get going quickly and without having to take out a loan.
Existing business can also take advantage of these platforms to expand without having to sell equity in their business. Many ideas are now being made possible with the power of Crowdfunding that would not get traditional funding.
However ... 7 out of 10 people don't know what Crowdfunding is all about!
The Crowdfunding scene is becoming more complex with each passing year. Besides new Crowdfunding platforms emerging every week there are a plethora of support services also coming on stream so without professional assistance and guidance, it is very difficult to know where to start or how to do this properly.
However, in amongst all this change, the fundamental success factors remain the same for both those raising and/or investing in campaigns. Setting yourself up correctly and following a tried and tested launch strategy is the SINGULAR most important success factor to running a successful crowdfunding campaign.
