  1. Crowdfunding is a very complicated process. It is essential to understand crowdfunding business and crowdfunding model. We were also looking forward to researching different crowdfunding sites and develop different crowdfunding definition. Many crowdfunding sites also support real estate crowdfunding and equity crowdfunding as well. Thank you - Crowdfunding Business
