Crowdfunding is a method of raising funds for a project, venture, or cause by pooling small amounts of money from a large number of people, typically via the internet. It bypasses traditional financing avenues like banks or venture capitalists, allowing individuals or organizations to solicit contributions or investments from a wide audience. Crowdfunding platforms facilitate this process, offering a space for creators to showcase their projects and for potential backers to pledge their support. Depending on the platform and the type of crowdfunding model used (such as donation-based, reward-based, equity-based, or debt-based), backers may receive perks, products, equity, or interest in return for their contributions. Crowdfunding has become increasingly popular for startups, creative projects, charitable causes, and even personal expenses.
