Crowdfunding can be defined as is the practice of funding a project by raising many small amounts of money from a large number of people, typically via the Internet.

Generally, this occurs via a crowdfunding platform (for example Pozible, Indiegogo, Kickstarter, Patreon) and if people want to support you, they can donate money to help you achieve your goal. It is common that project owners offer creative incentives or rewards to donors based on the amount that they donate.
