15 Innovation Insights to Inspire Your Crowdfunding Journey

The benefits of running a crowdfunding campaign go far beyond raising money: from creating a community through collecting valuable feedback to making a buzz around the product, – there is so much more to gain from giving it a go in the crowdfunding scene.

The entrepreneurs, who want to jump into the whirlpool of crowdfunding, need to learn the do’s and don’ts of raising money from the crowd, of communicating the right message, and how to use the momentum and achieve overall success.

The supporters look for different things when they back a campaign, but overall, innovative products that stand out with unique design have better success rate than the rest. If you want to gain a competitive edge over the competition (because all crowdfunders are competing for the attention of the backers), you need to take your campaign to a whole new level.

The best way to start is to look for fresh ideas and inspiration. Here we’ve collected for you 15 quotes about innovation that can help you awaken the creative genius within and to highlight what it really means to innovate:
