Crowd Funding

A definitive, crowd-sourced guide for anyone seeking to raise or invest money in the crowd.


The crowd funding guide for charities

In the last few years the crowd funding phenomenon has exploded. Entrepreneurs, business-owners, social enterprises, charities, film-makers and artists of all kinds now routinely raise large and small sums of money on crowd funding sites. Done properly, crowd funding, can be an efficient and reliable way of getting projects off the ground that might otherwise never see the light of day. But the failure rate for crowd funding campaigns is high. It can be confusing, hard work and, if things go wrong very expensive.

This thorough and authoritative book is the first to look at the rapidly changing world of crowd funding from all sides. As befits the subject, much of the advice has been crowd-sourced, bringing tips and comments from experts in all aspects of crowd funding, as well as dozens of case studies of specific campaigns, both successful and unsuccessful.

‘Before you do anything potentially expensive in the crowd I recommend you do your research. That is why you need to read this book. Now.’

Jon Moulton, founder and managing partner of Better Capital (from the foreword)
