Ideas for Enhancing your Campaign. The $5.1 Billion Future Of Crowdfunding Is More Than Kickstarter | News, Information and References for CrowdfundingCrowdFund Beat. The concept of offering a few bucks to help out a project might have started to help your friend’s new album, but new numbers show it’s growing rapidly–and turning into a legitimate form of investment. Crowdfunding is booming.

More than 1 million campaigns across 308 platforms raised $2.7 billion last year, an increase of 81% on 2011. And that volume is set to almost double in 2013, to $5.1 billion, according to a new report. But, if you thought the future of crowdfunding was all about dinky video game pitches, and cheerful perks on Kickstarter, you’d be missing something. Going forward, crowdfunding is likely to take on many forms, be more geographically-diverse, and, for better and worse, look more like big-time investing.

Massolution, which specializes in crowdfunding research, says volumes in North America grew 105% last year, to $1.6 billion, and in Europe by 65%, to $945 million. Up to now, the biggest category of campaigns has been “social causes.” Source: Co.Exsist – Ben Schiller.

Raising Money Through Crowdfunding? Consider These Best Practices for Success. Fundraising by getting small donations of money from a large group of people, what’s called crowdfunding, is a very different animal than getting access to capital at a bank: your story matters more than your credit score.

To be successful in a crowdfund, remember who your audience is and cater to it. Basic financial needs, like paying off debt, may be critical for your business, but “they just don’t excite a potential investor,” says Natalia Oberti Noguera, the founder of the Pipeline Fellowship, a New York City-based training program for teaching women philanthropists about angel investing. To get resources for your business, whether money or mentorship, tailor your request to the skills and interests of the person you are asking, says Oberti Noguera, who spoke at the conference.
