Top 10 Crowdfunding Themes
As more and more would-be entrepreneurs leave the world of traditional work to set up their own businesses and develop their own products, it only makes sense that crowdfunding as a means of financing a business endeavour has grown and grown in popularity. We’re seeing hundreds of businesses get off the ground each year due to crowdfunding on sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo, but plenty of users are also bucking the trend and setting up independent websites for crowdfunding.
Setting up your own crowdfunding site allows you to benefit from interested users pledging donations to help bring your vision to life, but without the constraints of Kickstarter and co you can choose your own layout, terms and conditions, and other options. So that’s where today’s post comes in; we’ve rounded up a list of the top ten crowdfunding themes to help inspire you to set up a site to fund your next great business adventure.
