Behind The Data and Reports

Crowdfunding has emerged as a worldwide phenomena. It exists in four major forms: equity, lending, rewards and donations. The equity, lending and donation models are traditional sources of finance that simply harness crowdfunding platforms to seek wider audiences. However rewards crowdfunding is something very new.

Rewards crowdfunding drives innovation through vital seed-funding, empowering inventors, entrepreneurs and creatives on an unprecedented scale. In this way, a successful crowdfunded project achieves ‘proof of concept’.

The research domain of rewards crowdfunding represents rich opportunities for advancing new knowledge about financial and economic changes as well as societal behaviour.

Primary data is generated via direct observation of all the major crowdfunding sites worldwide (see here for details), without intermediation. Since 2013, data has been harvested daily providing a times-series for each project and allowing greater confidence when making interpretive predictions.

What People Are Saying

  • "What this new data is telling us is that rewards crowdfunding's growth is sustained and at high enough level to be making a significant impact on the mainstream economy - and especially entrepreneurship and innovation.

Feeding as it does 'upstream' investment. ...It looks very much as if rewards crowdfunding is now providing a real alternative."
