What is Crowdfunding?
Crowdfunding is is the practice of funding a project or business by raising money from a large number of people
There are 4 main types of crowdfunding:
Backers contribute money in exchange for a reward. This reward is often, but not always, the item being produced, such as a watch or a game
Donors generally donate small amounts typically to charity, to good cause events
(often referred to as Peer to Peer lending). Investors
make a loan with the expectation to get paid back the principal loan amount plus interest.
Investors receive a share of equity in the company itself
