20 crowdfunding platforms

I’m sure you’ve already heard about crowdfunding, right?  Well, today this post is about “that”, so if you’re interested in knowing a bit more about what that word means and who is behind it, I’ll leave you some clues.

Crowdfunding is a way of raising money, small or big amounts of money, but also other types of resources, depending on the platform they are. Their goal is to help to start up a project, no matter what type it is. It’s based on the philosophy that the contributions of many people, no matter how small these are, can get projects started, which in other way will be very difficult to do so. They follow the saying:

Union means strength.

Nowadays, thanks to the internet and social networks in general, big amounts of money have been raised to start up many businesses, campaigns and entrepreneurial projects. All that thanks to contributions made by thousands of people from all around the world. There it is one of the huge values of the digital platforms.

As you can imagine, it’s not possible for me to gather every existing crowdfunding platform in this post, so my goal for today is for you to have a list of the more known and/or used.

Of course, before I move on I’d like to clarify that many of these platforms charge you some fees, so be careful with them.

Business is business.

Nelson Mandela quoted:

It always seems impossible until it’s done.

To share with you the canva and the hyperlinks has been a challenge for me, but I did it. It is not shown the way I would like but I did it. You just have to click in the image that appears above and once it is open, you will have access to the 20 links, one click for each platform.

Enjoy the week and the crowdfunding platforms.
