About this event

Crowdfunding is a collective effort of many individuals who network and pool their resources to support efforts initiated by other people or organizations. This is usually done via or with the help of the Internet. Individual projects and businesses are financed with small contributions from a large number of individuals, allowing innovators, entrepreneurs, and business owners to utilize their social networks to raise capital. Entrepreneurs and businesses can now utilize the crowd to obtain ideas, collect money, and solicit input on the product, overall fostering an environment of collective decision-making and allowing businesses to connect with potential customers. The main advantage of crowdfunding is that the funders are also potential customers and ambassadors of the project or business they support and that they will help to promote it through their own networks.

This course will provide an overview of the different types of crowdfunding including:

• Donation crowdfunding

• Equity crowdfunding

• Reward crowdfunding

• Lending crowdfunding


  • Dr. Conny Weber (European Crowdfunding Network, ECN)
