If you don’t know about Indiegogo, it is a crowdfunding platform, like Kickstarter. Its not only a great way to fund new product development by pre-selling things before they are available, it also is a great way for people to discover new products and ideas.
Crowdfunding is not a new idea. It started out similarly to a subscription service. Authors would publish books if they could get enough people sending in interest in the new product. Crowdfunding is like a preemptive subscription to a product. The money sent in gives the creator enough funds to create and release the product. With the internet, crowdfunding has become easier than ever. People can back projects, and be able to see in real time the progress they have helped build. Crowd funding also helps create products that people want. By backing a project, you are saying “Yes this is cool and I want to help make it a reality.” Indiegogo is a popular crowdfunding website, as well as Kickstarter.
