Crowdfunding refers to funding a project or a business venture by a large number of people each contributing small amounts of money normally done online, It’s a form of crowd sourcing and another finance option. In 2015, over $34 billion was raised by crowdfunding worldwide.
People who participate in crowdfunding contribute money to projects and ventures they are interested in. Most of them contribute in these projects because they feel a sense of supporting and being part of an innovative service or product.

Without a good design all your efforts may not work even if your idea is great. In order to sell your product or idea you should present it in a beautiful package.
Let’s look at what you need to successfully design a crowdfunding page and connect to potential investors.
Your brand is composed of your idea. A brand means having visual identity which includes any kind of visuals used on your logo, color etc. A good brand creates an emotional connection with your potential investors which highly influences their investment decision.
