Can crowdfunding grown your business?

In our last post, we introduced 5 of the top 9 websites that promote and host legitimate online crowdfunding. Today, we will familiarize readers with the remaining four crowdfunding platforms that can help ensure a successful launch.

They are:

5. Kickstarter: This platform is best known for offering crowdfunding opportunities for creative purposes; this includes films, music, art, journalism etc. Kickstarter has also received positive reviews from press outlets like Time, BBC and CNN. The site is very investor friendly and will present investors with both national and local funding opportunities.

6. Start Some Good: Entrepreneurs and business owners aren’t the only ones to benefit from crowdfunding. Social leaders and non-profits have also found tremendous success with sites like Start Some Good. This site is not exclusively for non-profits, but any socially conscious organization or individual hoping to fund their cause.

7. Peerbackers: Peerbackers is a crowdfunding site that lets creative minds submit their venture ideas and allows investors to commit their funding to the ideas that they believe most in. With backing from large media outlets like The Wall Street Journal, The Huffington Post and MSNBC, this crowdfunding site has gained a lot of momentum since inception. Peerbackers functions with similarities to social media and can be promoted on other social networks as well.

8. Quirky: Easily the most interesting crowdfunding platform online, Quirky is a site driven by the ideas of inventors. Launched in 2009, this site allows investors to become involved in the early stages of product development. Signing up can be as easy as linking your Facebook account to the site, and what sets this site apart is the shopping feature that actually serves a consumer purpose after the product has been successfully funded and is in production.
