Crowdfunding is a method of financing a project where one requests funding from a large audience, usually including the eventual end users of the resulting product. Rather than relying on investors exchanging large sums of money for ownership or a future financial return on the investment, the company using crowdfunding takes a large number of small investments in exchange for various perks.
