The whitepaper, titled “Crowd Sourced Funding – Don’t just Crowdfund. Communityfund”, reveals that the cost and challenge of raising money from the crowd can be offset by properly conceptualizing the universe of prospective investors as a set of communities.Communities, as a collection of people with a common self-identification around a geography, demographic, or affinity, are the contexts in which a business operates. From the geographic communities that are home to employees, factories, retail locations, fulfillment centers–to the industries that a business may identify with, these communities are critical to understanding the potential and value of a prospective community funding campaign.
