Crowdfunding: risky but rewarding
Description Although standout campaigns have served as great proof-of-concept for crowdfunding’s worth, like the Pebble wristwatch raising $10.2 million on Kickstarter seemingly overnight, the challenges that come along with the medium are almost too overwhelming to enumerate.

-Fraudsters capable of producing a slick video or business plan can now dupe thousands of people into buying vaporware or investing in a ghost company;

-Incompetent entrepreneurs can fail to deliver on their promises;

-Unsatisfied customers or investors can dispute their purchases or investments, amassing huge liabilities for the businesses, platforms, and payment processors.
