CROWDFUNDING MONITOR SERIES – RESEARCH FOR PRACTICAL USE
Crowdfunding Monitor 2018: An Overview of European Projects Financed on Startnext and Kickstarter Platforms between 2010 and mid-2017
Crowdfunding offers the possibility for founders to fund their project ideas, products, and services with small contributions of money from many individuals using internet platforms. This is especially important for start-ups and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) because their access to the traditional forms of financing such as bank lending, business angels and venture capital investments are limited. Based on a dataset of 12,152 European projects from the platforms Kickstarter and Startnext, this Monitor offers general information and clear recommendations for founders on which platform to choose for their project. It also provides guidance for funders on where to invest their money in order to be part of a successful project. In fact, Kickstarter and Startnext act as the most important crowdfunding platforms for European projects, thus, understanding the differences between success factors on both is important for regionally and internationally active investors, SMEs, founders and their advisors.
