Crowdfunding is the practice of funding a project or venture by raising small amounts of money from a large number of people, typically via the internet. It has been utilized to finance various endeavors, including charitable causes, business start-ups, and personal expenses.

  • Platforms dedicated to crowdfunding usually take a percentage of the funds raised and any fees charged by the payment processor to sustain their operations.
  • Initial campaigns often provide rewards to donors, such as early access to exclusive content or products, incentivizing contributions and fostering a sense of community.
  • Crowdfunding has gained significant popularity in recent years due to its ability to help project creators reach a broad audience of potential donors, democratizing access to funding and enabling innovative ideas to come to life.
