Crowdfunding has been rapidly on the rise as a viable investment vehicle for early-stage startups, validating business ventures, and as a solid and profitable business platform for entrepreneurs.
You can search the internet for countless articles regarding Crowdfunding, Crowdfunding strategies, vocabulary terms, and more. However, we here at IgnitionDeck feel there’s an overall lack of a concerted resource center that brings all these concepts and terminology together.
That’s why we decided to build this Crowdfunding guide—it’s a resource for the person looking to build their own Crowdfunding platform and the seasoned Crowdfunding expert alike.
