Crowdfunding has become a very popular way to launch a new product or service because you can post the idea and ask for financial supporters and when enough of people think that you are onto something good, you get the funding.
Websites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo are just a couple of ways to see what new products or ideas are being posted, but when they don’t get funded, those ideas and products are nothing more than vaporware...
In 2012 alone, Kickstarter had nearly $320 million dollars pledged and the site successfully funded over 18,000 projects.
