Crowdsourcing platforms in CEE

The roots of crowdfunding, at least as we know it today, go back to America when independent musicians turned to the internet to raise money for producing their records. However, what followed in the next decade was a wave of not only stories of success and an impressive growth in the landscape of crowdfuning but also a general movement in the startup scene.

While crowdfunding is a rather young phenomenon it enjoys increasing popularity not only among entrepreneurs but creative people from all over the world. With the help of the crowd you can get your prototype funded, pre-sell the first batch of your product before you even produce it or get the start capital to launch your creative project.
