Generally speaking, crowd-funding is the practice of funding a project or venture by raising small amounts of money from a large number of people. It is a collective effort of individuals who network and pool their money, typically via the Internet, to support efforts initiated by other people or organizations. It has been used to support a wide variety of activities, including disaster relief, citizen journalism, artistic ventures, political campaigns, startup companies, film promotion, new product development, and scientific research.
