This approach uses online tools, such as social media and crowdfunding platforms, and leverages their networks for greater reach and exposure. Although the concept of crowdfunding is still in its infancy, a number of factors are positioning it to become an increasingly attractive funding approach for many small businesses.

Traditionally, if you wanted to raise capital to start a business or launch a new product, you would need to prepare a business plan, market research, and prototypes, and then shop your idea around to a limited pool of wealthy individuals or institutions. These funding sources included banks, angel investors, and venture capital firms. This approach would limit your options to a few key players.

By giving entrepreneurs a single platform to build, showcase, and share their pitch resources, crowdfunding platforms dramatically streamline the traditional model. Traditionally, you would spend months sifting through your personal network, vetting potential investors, and spending your own time and money to get in front of them. With crowdfunding, it’s much easier for you to get your opportunity in front of more interested parties and give them more ways to help grow your business, from investing thousands of dollars in exchange for equity to contributing $20 in exchange for a first-run product or other reward.

Within a relatively short amount of time, crowdfunding has revolutionized the way small businesses find the capital they need to grow. By putting the tools for fundraising success in the hands of entrepreneurs, crowdfunding will continue to transform the landscape of business finance.[/fusion_text][/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container][fusion_builder_container background_color=”#ffffff” background_image=”” background_parallax=”none” enable_mobile=”no” parallax_speed=”0.3″ background_repeat=”no-repeat” background_position=”left top” video_url=”” video_aspect_ratio=”16:9″ video_webm=”” video_mp4=”” video_ogv=”” video_preview_image=”” overlay_color=”” overlay_opacity=”0.5″ video_mute=”yes” video_loop=”yes” fade=”no” border_size=”0px” border_color=”” border_style=”solid” padding_top=”20″ padding_bottom=”20″ padding_left=”” padding_right=”” hundred_percent=”no” equal_height_columns=”no” hide_on_mobile=”no” menu_anchor=”” class=”” id=””][fusion_builder_row][fusion_builder_column type=”1_1″ background_position=”left top” background_color=”” border_size=”” border_color=”” border_style=”solid” spacing=”yes” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” padding=”” margin_top=”0px” margin_bottom=”0px” class=”” id=”” animation_type=”” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_direction=”left” hide_on_mobile=”no” center_content=”no” min_height=”none”][fusion_separator style_type=”none” top_margin=”10″ bottom_margin=”10″ sep_color=”” border_size=”” icon=”” icon_circle=”” icon_circle_color=”” width=”” alignment=”center” class=”” id=””/][fusion_text]
