Crowdfunding is an interesting phenomenon, especially in the west, where million-dollar projects have been financed through small contributions. These include gadgets, artistic works, and even contributions to charitable causes.
Crowdfunding efforts in the Asia Pacific region are not necessarily as large as International ones, such as Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Crowdtilt. However, even these small projects are a good start, as these can showcase how the Internet can be a launchpad for financing projects big and small.
