The purpose of this assignment is to learn about the features, benefits, and possible problems of crowdfunding. For this paper, you have to do your own, independent research, and learn about crowdfunding. You should read and use references that are high quality and preferably academic. A good starting point can be this article: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S088390261300058X
