Whether you’re looking to fund a new idea for a mobile app or just make some potato salad for the world, crowdfunding can be a great way to raise some quick cash among friends and other citizens of the interweb. There was nearly $3 billion raised on crowdfunding sites like Kickstarter, Indiegogo and gofundeme back in 2012. The typical campaign raises about $7,000 towards its cause and has a 40% chance for success. See Crowdfunding isn’t easy, you need to have a great idea and marketing plan and having some friends and a cool video can go a long way too. One of the more memorable and awesome campaigns recently was led by The Oatmeal, a web comic that was able to raise over one million dollars for a museum dedicated to Nicola Tesla, a pioneer and futurist in electrical engineering.
Is there some cause or business you’d like to raise funds to support?
