Recent statistics show that Crowdfunding is estimated to have created approximately 270,000 jobs world wide and injected more than $65 billion into the global economy, proving that this relatively new method of raising capital is definitely here to stay.
When utilized correctly crowdfunding platforms provide the perfect opportunity for entrepreneurs to launch new products, fund innovative ideas and develop a global community in support of their business.
Unfortunately, it isn’t all rainbows and success. According to statistics provided by some of the most well-known crowdfunding platforms in North America, on average only 44% of campaigns succeed in reaching their funding goal.

The difference between rewards-based crowdfunding, fundraising & equity crowdfunding.
Why some campaigns fail and others succeed.
