Crowdfunding: Grassroots Funding for Grassroots Organisations?

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleCommunication


Crowdfunding represents a fast growing source of alternative finance for a variety of both for- and non-profit ventures that is changing how everything from personal loans to start-up investment is financed. What makes crowdfunding especially unique is that it requires that strangers are willing to support
strangers for causes, products, or services that have not yet been realized and of which they have little direct oversight or control. Despite this, crowdfunding has grown enormously quickly from a total volume of 2.7 billion dollars in 2012 to 34.4 in 2015.
