Crowdfunding (sometimes referred to as Crowdsourcing) is the collective effort of individuals who network and pool their money, usually via the Internet, to support (in the case of Fundervine) efforts initiated by artists, musicians, games developers, filmmakers and other creative individuals.
The fun and exciting part of Crowdfunding is that you get to share in the creativity and be recognised as part of the project! You’ll often get your name in the credits, an invite to a premiere, a cd or dvd or even a chance to meet the project creator directly.
Crowdfunding is a tangible way to engage supporters of creative projects without simply asking for money. All projects must offer rewards as part of the funding process and rather than simply buying a cd from a store or watching a film online you really do become an integral part of the project.
Help fantastic creative projects and feel good about it. It’s a win-win!
