Not entirely sure about the business side of crowdfunding, but I do know that it's becoming much more prevalent in fields of entertainment. Some of the biggest hits in gaming this year have come from crowdfunding, and the avenue is even allowing revivals of franchises (and professionals such as Don Bluth coming out of retirement). It'll certainly be interesting to see how much crowdfunding can lend itself to a business environment, although at the minute I'm a little skeptical at the size of the raised funds and the frequency of substantial pots. To be honest, I think it's naturally more suited to the entertainment fields, although I'd love to be proven wrong."
