There are several platforms to crowdfund on, one being kickstarter and another being crowdrise. Crowdfunding is exactly what it sounds like, multiple lenders coming together to donate to your projects.
This is a great way to fund your business if you need to implement some ideas but lack the funds. Right now, I am developing software that will likely cost around $200,000. So I have started crowdfunding campaigns to fund this project.
You can offer rewards like free software once it’s completed etc..
Hope this helps! thanks for reading!
