Crowdfunding market in APAC

“The crowdfunding market is experiencing tremendous growth in APAC primarily due to the growth of the social media and a mobile-savvy population that has the potential to build credible relationships over short messages. With the legality issues being cold compared with those in the Western countries, the extreme use of mobile phones has the potential to save a lot of time,” adds Ujjwal.

The region where entrepreneurs are struggling because of the lack of finance can use crowdfunding not just to finance their ideas but also to secure funding from other sources by showing the popularity of their crowdfunding campaigns. Venture capitalists do consider these success stories, making crowdfunding the ideal platform to secure funding even if the entrepreneur lacks credit history.

Crowdfunding market in EMEA

An alternative source of financing has always been the traditional method of securing finance in this region. The popularity and rapid adoption of crowdfunding have catapulted the market to a whole new level in this region. Startup enterprises and small businesses have always depended on alternative financing. Crowdfunding is popular in this region as it was always considered a customer-centric approach. Unlike conventional financing services, crowdfunding considers the viewpoint of the investor while investing.

A high proportion of the businesses funded by crowdfunding operates only on digital platforms. The probability of success of these companies is higher compared with a business based on the traditional approaches in the current Internet era. With the increasing likelihood of success, the revenue increases, which further encourages more investors to be part of crowdfunding.

The top vendors in the global crowdfunding market highlighted in the report are:

  • GoFundMe
  • Indiegogo
  • Kickstarter
