Crowdfunding Websites

We’re creating a list of crowdfunding sources – and we expect many more to arrive in the next few weeks. If you know of a crowdfunding website not on our list, why not add yours below…

We’ve recently updated this list to split – equity crowdfunding from donation crowdfunding with an additional section on peer to peer lending.

 

  1. Equity Crowdfunding sites
  2. Donation Crowdfunding and Crowd Selling sites
  3. Peer to peer lending

    Hey, I’d love for our site to get added to this list :)

    It’s Go Get Funding (http://gogetfunding.com) and fundraisers can raise money for absolutely anything they want.

    We’re global although the currency we use is USD so we’re probably best suited in the USA category.

    Thanks for creating this list!

    I found a new crowdfunding platform specialized in Technology and Science Projects:https://www.technofunding.com
    Besides the possibility of getting the projects funded, the project creator can get worldwide exposure for the project idea.
    Could become very interesting for the funding of our Tech/Science ideas. What do you think about it?
