Creative Projects Crowdfunding

This month we go back to the roots, to the origins of the concept of Crowdfunding. The whole idea took off when a music band unable to travel and play to an audience saw their fans fund their expenses. Since then not just music projects, but several other ventures leveraged this medium of reaching out to the crowd to realise their goals. Here we take a look at the creative categories in crowdfunding with a recent example from Kickstarter.
