Reward-based Crowdfunding and Sustainable Entrepreneurship: A Web-experiment

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Reward-based crowdfunding is a rapidly growing source of innovation finance which has been heralded by its proponents as an enabler of a wider diversity of entrepreneurs including sustainable entrepreneurs. Utilizing a web-based experiment the study, however, finds that any mono-causal conclusion on whether crowdfunding is an attractive proposition for sustainable entrepreneurs is misplaced. Instead it finds that different personal characteristic, personal value orientations and most importantly product details play a significant role in determining (un)sustainable pledging behavior. Reward-based crowdfunding therefore appears for certain types of campaigns as an enabler of sustainable product innovation, while in other circumstances it enables egocentrically-oriented campaigns.
