For business ventures and projects, the biggest hurdle to making it take off is funding. Finding investors who are willing to shell out funds to help you start your business can take some time. If business people cannot find sources of funding, they often take a loan and fund the project on their own. This is a big gamble that could end up draining your personal finances especially since earning the money back can take some time. A new concept of raising funds, called crowdfunding, is fast becoming popular because it uses a wider audience or base of people as your investors. Crowdfunding is literally pitching your business idea to anyone who is interested, and collecting money from whoever wants to donate to you.

There are platforms for crowdfunding your business idea such as Kickstarter, Indiegogo, and Go Fund Me. A project or business needs to be explained clearly first and a landing page containing diagrams, videos, images and marketing pitches are created to convince more people to support the project or campaign. The same page contains the amount or fund that the project needs in order to take off. There are however, some variations to this. In some cases, your donation counts as a first order and you will be receiving a product; in other cases, you are purely donating it so that the project can see the light of day. Regardless of the situation, the fact remains that visionaries and inventors are now able to find help in raising funds for their ventures.
