Crowdfunding

Crowdfunding is financing method, which involves funding your new ideas or ventures by raising small amounts of money from a large number of people, rather than seeking substantial sums from a small number of investors through a dedicated crowdfunding website.

Depending on your project/campaign, contributors make donations, invest in a future potential return of investment, or prepaying for a product or service.

Crowdfunding helps creative individuals and businesses secure capital and get the support you need to make your ideas a reality. Crowdfunding will help you raise money for your business and enables the Lander community to go beyond buying local to investing in the local economy. Understanding the fees and unique features at each site will help you take full advantage of the boom in alternative funding. Here is a small list of platforms for you to get your campaign started and raise money online. Make it happen!
