The most popular crowdfunding site on the Internet, Kickstarter has become a household name. However, it's more for funding inventions and creative works and not for helping nonprofit organizations or funding your own endeavors without something in return.
Also, you don't get to keep the money pledged if the kickstarter goal is not reached.
While it tends to play second fiddle to Kickstarter, Indiegogo has a number of advantages its counterpart doesn't provide. For instance, Indiegogo has flexible funding that lets you keep the funds you've raised, even when you haven't been able to reach your goal.
It also lets you buy funded products in the platform's marketplace, so successful projects have another potential source of income.
Another popular crowdfunding platform, Patreon sets itself apart with its subscription model. Instead of being for straight-up campaigns, this is more for providing ongoing financial support for a creative venture or artist.
There's also the option to provide content exclusive to patrons who are subscribed to your Patreon through the site itself.
This one is more popular for individuals who need money right away.
You may often see people asking for crowdfunding for short-term projects and medical emergencies in GoFundMe, which is common practice in this platform.
While not as popular as the platforms mentioned above, Crowdrise has garnered attention for its focus on crowdfunding "real-world issues" over funding for-profit ventures. It can also be used to fund college scholarships, weddings, and even birthday parties.
Due to this mostly socially-conscious objective, GoFundMe took notice and acquired it in early 2017.
This one is mostly for venture capital, so businesses and other for-profit ventures can use RocketHub for crowdfunding their startups.
Meanwhile, their ELEQUITY Funding Room lets you pitch your project idea and generate interest, which can then lead to getting advice and even additional funding.
It has a fairly straightforward name, which matches what it's for.
Crowdfunder lets you sell equity and debt in your business to attract angel investors and venture capitalists to raise money for your projects.
It's like a regular venture capital program, but with the online infrastructure to raise awareness usually beyond smaller business' means.
Funding Circle is a peer-to-peer lending marketplace that allows investors to lend money directly to small and medium-sized businesses. Funding Circle was the first website to use the process of peer-to-peer lending for business funding in the UK, and now operates in the UK, US, Germany, and the Netherlands
OK, if your business idea didn’t pan out, give AngelList a shot, because you can apply for a job at more than 60,000 startups with a single application — it’s the only site I found that lets you do that. But if you’re looking for a place to invest, then AngelList has those opportunities as well. Oh, and you can still apply for funding, too. Just fill out an application, and you’ll be introduced to potential investors and lenders.
We added Ulele to the list of top crowdfunding platforms partly because it’s an international crowdfunding platform, but also because I like to say the name. Ulule. Ulule. Ulule. It’s like saying ukulele, but without the ‘K.’ Ulule funds mostly creative projects, and they’ve helped more than 16,000 artists and entrepreneurs in 198 countries. Don’t let their international focus frighten you though. They’re headquartered in Paris, with offices in Barcelona, Rome, Antwerp and Montreal. If you’ve got a worthwhile project you believe in, give Ulule a try.
I like the directness of this website’s name, as if it’s a command and not just an explanation of what they do. Similar to GoFundMe, another bossy platform, GoGetFunding will let you raise funds for any cause, whether personal, nonprofit or even a business. I saw campaigns for raising funds for a British documentary, a man to keep his motel room, funeral expenses for a German jockey, and hearing aids for a Polish DJ. If you have a worthy cause to support and people to help, GoGetFunding and GoSaveTheWorld.
Fundable is a sort of crowdsourced venture capital. You post your business or idea on Fundable and investors can pledge money to your project, just like KickStarter. The only difference is, you’ve got some skin in the game — it costs $179 per month to be on Fundable, and they take 3.5 percent + $.30 of every transaction. You can give rewards (items like prizes or product pre-orders) or give equity in your company. And like KickStarter, the rewards campaigns are all or nothing — if you don’t meet your goal, you don’t get any money.
Kiva is a special crowdfunding platform, and one I truly appreciate: the money raised here is not for you. Whether it’s lending $250 to a women’s sewing group in Burkina Faso to buy sewing materials, or $2,000 to an Armenian photojournalist, you can loan a small amount to any borrower you choose, and as the loan is paid back, you can make a little bit of money in return. This is a way to help deserving individuals, especially in underserved parts of the world, get just a little bit of money to make a vast difference in their lives.

THE EQUITY CROWDFUNDING PLATFORMS IN THE WORLD
Created as a bottom-up form of microfinance that mobilizes people and resources, crowdfunding is today among the most widespread and effective forms of financing for entrepreneurial and creative projects. Websites are the platform (among the most famous internationally Kickstarter and Indiegogo, just to name a few) and allow fundraisers to meet a wide audience of potential financiers.
Crowdfunding is a practice of funding by raising small amounts of money from large numbers of people, typically via the Internet, Crowdfunding is a form of crowdsourcing and alternative finance. In 2015, over US $ 34 billion was raised worldwide by crowdfunding.
The term crowdfunding refers to Internet-mediated registries, although similar concepts can also be executed through mail-order subscriptions, benefit events, and other methods. This modern crowdfunding model is based on the project initiator who proposes the idea to the moderator, the "platform" that brings the parties together to launch the idea.
Crowdfunding has been used to fund a wide range of for-profit, entrepreneurial ventures such as artistic and creative projects, medical expenses, travel, and community-oriented social entrepreneurship projects. Its use has also been criticized for funding quackery, especially costly and fraudulent cancer treatments.
Below we see what are the equity crowdfunding platforms active in the world and how they work.
