The equity crowd funding platforms are where the donators or investors will give funding in exchange for a share in the company. If the business does well then so does the shareholder, of course this means that if the business fails the shareholder loses all of their investment. This type of crowd funding is often popular with experienced investors who make a point of researching the market and business, making educated investments on sound projects.
