Crowdfunding is ultimately about raising cash. But potential investors might want to be involved because it’s about more than that – maybe they feel passionate about a project or maybe they just want to be a part of it. Digital fundraising has torn down global barriers and given rise to the ability to source funding from a platform, 24/7 and regardless of location. So, if you’re an entrepreneur who believes your idea is too quirky to crowdfund, you can think again as these days it appears that no idea is out of bounds.
Take a look at some of the most unexpected things that have been successfully crowdfunded:
All it takes is to be so weird that it goes viral. Two examples of utterly bizarre campaigns include a man who just wanted to make potato salad. That was it. He only needed $10, started a digital campaign and people loved the simplicity of it so much that he ended up with over $55,000 from almost 7,000 backers.
The second started back in 2009: a project campaigner decided he really wanted to see every sentence of Moby Dick translated into emojis because he was interested in “the phenomenon of how our language, communications, and culture are influenced by digital technology.” It was fully funded and went straight on sale.
