Crowding In, a resource which allows you to compare crowdfunding platforms. Liam Collins, Senior Researcher at Nesta, said that a combination of modern technology and the financial crisis has made the crowdfunding market ripe. He said: Weve seen phenomenal growth in the number of platforms over the last five years, across every type from reward-based crowdfunding to peer-to-peer lending. Crowdfunding has proved immensely popular, both in the UK and globally, and these figures show that this trend is set to continue. Separate figures from Nesta published last year showed that almost 1bn was raised through alternative funding, including crowdfunding, in 2014, and predicts that 1.4bn will be raised this year.
