Music and Equity Crowdfunding
Over the last fifteen years, since the advent of the worldwide web, there has been a revolution in the world of finance. More money is being raised online today than ever before from crowds of like-minded investors, consumers, and communities of fans, especially in the creative arts. The phenomenon is global and has all the hallmarks of a higher growth early stage industry, with newer sites making the difference in the last couple of years. Kickstarter and Indiegogo, for instance, have taken over much business from ArtistShare, the first ever music fan funded site started more than ten years ago.
