Potentials: Crowdfunding for a better quality of life
Crowdfunding means that projects from the "crowd", so from many people, are financed via the internet. So far crowdfunding was especially as an innovative financial instrument for creative projects and young start-ups. But especially in the regional context crowdfunding can contribute to sustainable solutions.
Why? Because the virtual anonymity can be broken by the proximity of the crowd. And because the desire for better quality of life in people’s own environment connects them and organisations in a region.
Crowdfunding offers a tool to concentrate local forces for a common goal, which is to allow a good life for all.
If used properly, crowdfunding is therefore not only a way to finance projects, but also provides a momentum for more innovation, responsibility and quality of life.
