2,800 crowdsourcing and crowdfunding sites
The crowdfunding industry is taking off in a big way, with $2.7 billion raised in 2012 across 1 million campaigns, according to massolution’s recent Crowdfunding Industry Report.
That number is only expected to grow, the report found, as crowdfunding enters the mainstream and American equity-based platforms get the go-ahead from the SEC.
The platform GoGetFunding recently released an infographic visualizing some of the trends and statistics in crowdfunding. The infographic uses statistics from massolution’s the 2012 and 2013 industry reports, among other sources. Some of the numbers and trends mentioned include funds paid out per equity-based projects, as well as market growth among different crowdfunding categories.
Check out the infographic below, and to learn more about crowdfunding growth, take a look at the 2013CF Crowdfunding Industry Report.
