What is crowdfunding and what types of crowdfunding can I do on TADAMON?
Crowdfunding is the way of funding a project or venture by raising small amounts of money from a large number of people, typically via the Internet.
By 2025, the World Bank estimates that crowdfunding is expected to grow to US$300 billion from US$ 1 billion in 2011and US$ 60-70 billion in 2016. Currently, crowdfunding is one of the largest sources of financing for SMEs. Blending crowdfunding with Islamic finance such as ISFD Waqf towards the pursuit of SDGs and humanitarian purpose bear a significant potential for initiating or empowering crowdfunding activities. In this regard, crowdfunding elements bring technological improvement to the existing cultural flows of Islamic finance, which is expected to surpass US$ 3 trillion by 2020.
