Common Crowdfunding Types & Examples:
|Equity Crowdfunding||Rewards Crowdfunding||Revenue Sharing Crowdfunding||Donation Crowdfunding||Lending Crowdfunding|
|In equity crowdfunding, investors purchase an ownership interest in the entity, whether it’s shares in a startup corporation or membership interests in a limited liability company (or partnership) owning real estate. Equity interests can be senior or subordinate to the other ownership interests, and are subordinate to the rights of the entity’s creditors.||Rewards-based crowdfunding is the most common type of crowdfunding option available. This type of crowdfunding involves setting varying levels of rewards that correspond to pledge amounts.||Revenue-sharing crowdfunding involves offering investors a percentage of the revenue generated by a project or product. This means that investors receive a portion of the profits generated by the project, but do not have any ownership stake or voting rights in the company.||Donation crowdfunding is exactly what it sounds like - the campaigns amass donations without being required to provide anything of value in return. This type of campaign serves social causes and charities best.||Lending-based crowdfunding allows entrepreneurs to raise funds in the form of loans they will pay back to the lenders over a pre-determined timeline with a set interest rate.|
