Some Advantages of Crowdfunding:
-You retain control, ownership, and future profits- in most crowdfunding platforms, you do not give equity
-On many crowdfunding platforms, you offer perks in return for contributions. Perks can include samples of product or service, which can help build and validate customer demand
-This creativity-driven funding process is also a marketing platform. This creates synergies which help entrepreneurs maximize limited resources
-Much crowdfunding is vision-based, without need for historical financials or due diligence. So it is a more accessible funding source for new entrepreneurs than debt, PE or VC funds.
