What is Crowdfunding?
► Reach - By presenting ideas on crowdfunding platforms, companies have access to thousands of investors who can see, take part in, and share your fundraising campaign.
► Showcase - By creating a crowdfunding campaign, companies' products are not only promoted by the company themselves, but also the platforms and other media outlets. This gives companies an advantage by attracting more traffic to their website and other landing pages.
► Validate - Presenting the product to the netizens will be an excellent opportunity to validate and refine the concepts. Crowdfunding platforms provide first-hand feedback for companies to further improve the product.
