Kickstarter launched on April 28, 2009, by Perry Chen, Yancey Strickler, and Charles Adler.[8] The New York Times called Kickstarter "the people's NEA".[9] Timenamed it one of the "Best Inventions of 2010"[10] and "Best Websites of 2011".[11] Kickstarter reportedly raised $10 million funding from backers including NYC-based venture firm Union Square Ventures and angel investors such as Jack Dorsey, Zach Klein and Caterina Fake.[12] The company is based in the Greenpoint section of Brooklyn.[13]

Andy Baio served as the site's CTO until November 2010, when he joined Expert Labs.[14] Lance Ivy has been Lead Developer since the website launched.[15] On February 14, 2013, Kickstarter released an iOS app called Kickstarter for the iPhone.[16] The app is aimed at users who create and back projects and is the first time Kickstarter has had an official mobile presence.[17]

On October 31, 2012, Kickstarter opened to projects based in the United Kingdom,[18] followed by projects based in Canada on September 9, 2013,[19] Australia and New Zealand on November 13, 2013,[20] and Denmark, Ireland, Norway, and Sweden on September 15, 2014.[21] and in Spain on May 19, 2015.[22]

 Kickstarter is an enormous global community built around creativity and creative projects. Over 10 million people, from every continent on earth, have backed a Kickstarter project.

Some of those projects come from influential artists like De La Soul or Marina Abramović. Most come from amazing creative people you probably haven’t heard of — from Grandma Pearl to indie filmmakers to the band down the street.

Every artist, filmmaker, designer, developer, and creator on Kickstarter has complete creative control over their work — and the opportunity to share it with a vibrant community of backers.

Since our launch, on April 28, 2009, 11 million people have backed a project, $2.5 billion has been pledged, and 109,593projects have been successfully funded.

Indiegogo was founded to Revolutionize Funding:

When creative people work together, amazing things happen. Danae Ringelmann grew up seeing her parents struggle to get small business loans. In his spare time, Eric Schell attempted to help a Chicago theater company get funding. Slava Rubin fundraised for a cure for Myeloma, the disease that killed his father. They came together because they found a fundamental flaw in the system: for centuries, access to funding had been controlled by a select few. Your crazy, cool, genius ideas were getting stuck.

Danae, Eric, and Slava founded Indiegogo in 2008 to shift the power into your hands—to empower creative, entrepreneurial people everywhere to bring their ideas to life. We can’t wait to see what you create next.

While crowdfunding might be reaching maturity (in Internet years), there are still a number of myths and misconceptions out there that we’d like to debunk for you. Start your Indiegogo: http://bit.ly/1yTrsPB

GoFundMe is a crowdfunding platform that allows people to raise money for events ranging from life events such as celebrations and graduations to challenging circumstances like accidents and illnesses.[2][3] The company is based inSan Diego, California.[4][5]

The company was founded in May 2010 by Brad Damphousse and Andrew Ballester. Both had previously founded Paygr which is a website dedicated to allowing members to sell their services to the public.[6] Damphousse and Ballester originally created the website under the name "CreateAFund" in 2008 but later changed the name to GoFundMe after making numerous upgrades to the features of the website.[7][8] In June 2015, it was announced that Damphousse and Ballester had agreed to sell a majority stake in GoFundMe to Accel Partners and to step down from the day-to-day oversight of the company. The deal valued GoFundMe at around $600 million.[9]

GoFundMe is a personal online fundraising platform for individuals, groups and organisations that has raised over $780 million since 2010.

You can select from three types of Crowdfunding campaigns:


* Personal Donation (this is the most popular type) where people can raise money for things like medical bills, school tuition, volunteer travel and more. There is no need to worry about deadlines or goals, as every payment is made in real time, and is yours to keep.

* Charity fundraising, where you can search GoFundMe´s database of millions of US and UK charities to raise money for the one you choose, and every donation gets sent directly to the charity you have chosen.

* All or Nothing for projects, products and startups, and supporters are charged only if the goal is reached by the deadline set (available to US customers only).

Easy to use website, with clear instructions on how to go about setting up a CrowdFund. They now have a mobile app you can use to setup and launch your campaign.

Our community of more than 3,000,000 superfans and over 50,000 artists continues to grow weekly because we all believe there’s a better way to experience music and share the unique relationship between artist and fan.

[CROWDFUNDING EM PORTUGAL]

 

O que é o Crowdfunding?

Crowd = Coletivo 
Funding = Financiamento 
 
Financiamento colectivo. Imagine: você tem uma ideia fantástica para a sua empresa futura, ou um projecto (de sonho). Mas falta-lhe o dinheiro para dar forma às suas ideias. Onde vai buscar o dinheiro para começar?

Não é possível encontrar um investidor, e os bancos não estão a dar empréstimos. Fim da história? Não! Durante os últimos anos, surgiu um novo tipo de financiamento, com o nome de “crowdfunding”. Traduzido livremente: um grupo de pessoas efectua doações de dinheiro num conceito (de empresa). Porque é que este “grupo” quer investir? Se alguém recebe um financiamento do banco ou de um investidor, na maioria dos casos os benefícios financeiros (finais) para o banco ou para o investidor têm um papel muito importante.

No sistema de financiamento colectivo, geralmente o dinheiro não é a razão para investir. Trata-se sobretudo de boa vontade para com o empreendedor ou promotor e tem mais a ver com a sensação positiva que o investidor recebe ao contribuir para uma iniciativa que apoia completamente. Quem é a sua “crowd” ou o seu colectivo?

Muitas vezes, no início, trata-se de amigos, família e conhecidos. Estas pessoas entusiasmam-se com os seus planos e querem ajudá-lo a realizar os mesmos. Para garantir o crescimento do seu colectivo, irá necessitar de atrair pessoas de fora da sua rede imediata. Para eles, geralmente, tem de trabalhar mais arduamente para atrair o seu interesse e fazê-los querer investir em si. A simpatia e a confiança são dois factores de extrema importância. Se as pessoas estiverem interessadas nos seus planos e quiserem investir, também querem ficar a par dos progressos e desenvolvimentos, por exemplo através de um blog ou das redes sociais. Muitas vezes, estes investidores estão muito mais interessados na sua história pessoal do que no retorno propriamente dito. Se os seus investidores estiverem (e permanecerem) entusiasmados, é provável que consigam persuadir outros a investir no seu projecto. Como investir? O seu colectivo pode investir de várias formas: • Doadores: o seu colectivo faz doação de dinheiro e não recebem nada em troca, excepto uma boa sensação; 
• Patrocinadores: você oferece recompensas não financeiras, por exemplo, uma cópia do seu livro ou o nome do patrocinador no seu site; 
• Empréstimo: o seu colectivo recupera o montante emprestado após algum tempo, com juros; 
• Participação: colectivo que partilha no desempenho do projecto. Para quem é que o financiamento colectivo pode ser uma solução? Em todos os casos, o financiamento colectivo pode ser um presente vindo dos céus: para empresas (recentes), projectos criativos, para realizar arte para projectos sociais no país de origem e/ou no estrangeiro, para projectos desportivos, para iniciativas comunitárias, escritores, caridades, músicos, jornalistas, fotógrafos e por aí além.
