Crowdfunding has helped bring the power of the Internet to investing. Since the launch of sites like Kickstarter in 2009, major startups producing market-disrupting technology like the Oculus Rift have gotten their start by amassing small donations from a very large group of people. Here's a look at what crowdfunding is and crowdfunding legal mistakes to avoid.
What Is Crowdfunding?
Crowdfunding can be a powerful fundraising tool beyond traditional methods like gathering financial support from friends, relatives, banks, angel investors, and venture capital firms. By registering an account on an online crowdfunding platform, a startup can gather small amounts of capital from a large number of individuals to finance a new business venture.
