Alternative finance option is taking mainstream and can no longer be complete without the mention of crowdfunding. One question that comes to mind is why crowdfunding is becoming a defacto standard for business startups seeking business finance. There is no doubt that crowdfunding is forging ahead strongly, but it is also important to note that there are many failed crowdfunding projects.

Crowdfunding has continually met the criteria to mention it as reshaping the concept and future of financing.Successful crowdfunding campaigns have been attributed to success at building an effective and active community that shares the same passion. Crowdfunding is about reaching out to the crowd to solicit their support and to engage their attention towards the achievement of an objective. It is difficult to elicit the support of people you do not understand or share their ideas.

Community building is a good starting point before starting a crowdfunding campaign. The internet has made communication, community building, and engagement to be much easier than before. A crowdfunder must build a community prior before embarking in crowdfunding.
