What Is Crowdfunding And Peer To Peer (P2P) Lending?

“A new crowdfunding project is created every three minutes, with an estimated 1,000 new projects created every day worldwide (June 2014)”

So what is crowdfunding?  In it’s simplest form, crowdfunding is the ability to raise funding for a business idea, property project or social reason from a number of people, each contributing varying amounts towards the cause. There are 4 main types of crowdfunding:

Loan Based Crowdfunding (also called Peer to Peer Lending):  Simple Backing is a loan based crowdfunding platform.  Investors (also known as Lenders) provide a loan towards a business idea or property project . This loan is to be paid back with an agreed rate of interest, over an agreed term.  The loan term and the interest payable can vary depending upon the project.

Equity Crowdfunding:  Investors buy shares in a company, usually through an online platform.

Rewards Based Crowdfunding:  This is the most popular form of crowdfunding and has been around the longest.  Investors pre-purchase a product and/or receive a gift/ treat in return for their backing.

Donation Based Crowdfunding:  Here, people or companies invite the ‘crowd’ to help fund their activity. Usually, no return is offered and thus is the most philanthropic of all 4 types of crowdfunding.

Crowdfunding provides projects, products and services that may otherwise have been overlooked, the opportunity to shine.  Enjoy the crowdfunding journey!
