Crowd funding Crowdfunding is the practice of funding a project or venture by raising monetary contributions from a large number of people, typically via the internet. One early-stage equity expert described it as “the practice of raising funds from two or more people over the internet towards a common Service, Project, Product, Investment, Cause, and Experience, or SPPICE.” The crowdfunding model is fueled by three types of actors: the project initiator who proposes the idea and/or project to be funded; individuals or groups who support the idea; and a moderating organization (the "platform") that brings the parties together to launch the idea. In 2013, the crowdfunding industry grew to be over $5.1 billion worldwide. History Types The Crowdfunding Centre's May 2014 report identified the existence of two primary types of crowdfunding: Rewards-based Equity Debt-based Litigation Charity Role of the crowd Crowdfunding platforms Origins Press
Crowd funding and financing loans with micropayments part 1 There is new extremely powerful model emerging for fund raising and loans and it is called "Crowd funding". This sort of internet funding first took place with charities but these days there are new sites appearing every day that offer you loans or investing into various projects. Basically it works by connecting people who need to borrow certain amount of money with all the visitors of such sites who are interested about investing small sums into multiple projects. So if you need $1000 and instead of borrowing this money from one person or institutions it will get funded by 258 unknown persons from the internet. At first glance this seems like something that would never work because there are so many scammers out there who would ruin it for everyone involved. Asking for funding or a loan from these financing web sites works like from any other one but as you may already know you need to be as transparent and trustworthy as possible if you want anyone to give you money.

La production communautaire, ou « production participative », est une méthode de production de contenu par un très grand nombre de personnes. La mise en commun des apports individuels est facilitée par le développement des réseaux sociaux et des communautés sur internet. Le financement de la production communautaire peut être assuré par un financement collaboratif. Le principe de la production communautaire[modifier | modifier le code] Une production communautaire fait appel aux internautes pour trouver les fonds nécessaires à l’aboutissement d'un projet de création. Le financement peut être total ou partiel, ou prendre la forme d'une augmentation de capital (dans ce dernier cas, on parle parfois de « financement 2.0 ou de « levée de fonds 2.0 »). L'appel peut être largement ouvert, ou réduit à un cercle de réseaux de contact et d'amis. D’un côté, des sites de coproduction qui transforment l’internaute en investisseur.
