The Role of the Crowd

Categories

There are various roles for the ‘crowd’ in crowdfunding initiatives, depending upon the model and the initiative (for instance, reward-based crowdfunding is often found in industries such as technology, science and the film industry). The individuals who make up the crowd may act as a donor to help charitable projects, or become shareholders and be a part of the growth of the venture. Many crowdfunders enjoy the participatory element, while others are investing for a high financial return, often helping to provide venture capital for a start-up business.
