Crowdfunding allows innovative products and creative projects to be financed by investors or private individuals. Ideas come from various sectors, such as trade, industry, agriculture, real estate, or the start-up world.
There are different crowdfunding models. The difference lies in the form of participation that investors and backers receive:
- In reward-based, donors support a project and receive a product in return.
- In crowd investing, investors invest in a project or company through an equity-like participation and receive a fixed or performance-related return.
- In crowd lending, the investor provides debt capital in the form of a loan at a predetermined interest rate.
As part of an online event in July 2020, we presented several crowdfunding platforms.
