So what is Crowdfunding?
Crowdfunding, alternately termed crowd financing, equity crowdfunding, crowd equity, crowd-sourced fundraising, is the collective effort of individuals who network and pool their money, usually via the Internet, to support efforts initiated by other people or organizations. Crowdfunding is used in support of a wide variety of activities, including disaster relief, citizen journalism, support of artists by fans, political campaigns, start-up company funding, motion picture promotion, free software development, inventions development, scientific research, and civic projects.

Top game developing companies such as Ouya, inXile Entertainment and Obsidian Entertainment raised an impressive $16.78 Million collectively, in crowdfunded capital. Game developers and technology start-ups have been the most popular and successful companies to use crowdfunding but non-for-profit organizations have also used the new-age capital source to also raise money for much-needed causes.

On the other hand, these new technologies can require relearning or adapting new, oftentimes more complex, methodologies and tools to be ready for production.
