"Crowdfunding is the process of raising capital from many individuals, who believe in a venture or cause, each making small donations that add up to a lot." - Crowdsourcing
The concept of reaching out to the crowd is not entirely a newfangled idea. In 1858, the first Oxford English dictionary was created using the expertise of many thousands of volunteers. The practice is more prevalent in the modern day as the Internet has made it easy to connect online with people that would otherwise remain unknown. Crowdfunding can be used to raise money for a variety of purposes, from philanthropy and political campaigns to loans and music albums. Until recently, due to limitations on how small businesses and startups can attract capital investment, the concept of crowdfunding has been mostly used by creative and charitable organizations. A recent legislative change has put an end to that and a new dawn of fundraising is beginning.
