Crowdfunding can be an effective way to raise capital and public awareness, when launching or growing a small business. Rather than approaching a single lender to make a significant loan to your business (which you will most likely need to personally guaranty), crowdfunding platforms give you a way to leverage your network of friends, family, social media connections, and the public at large to obtain significant capital in small increments. Find out how crowdfunding works and if it is right for you!
