Crowdfunding: Using the crowd to fund projects isn't really new - but the online infrastructure, especially for real estate projects, is. Especialy social and creative projects are harder to finance. Crowdfunding is not the final solution to close this gap, but it looks like crowdfunding will be a part of the solution. We can learn from the music-, journalism- & filmmarket, which are changing emensly. Some big projects used crowdfunding in a successful way. With your help can help!
