From Crowdspeaking to Crowdfunding
We’re really excited about a trend we’ve been seeing in the campaigns you’ve been running on Thunderclap.
You’re creating campaigns to share brilliant ideas, and sometimes, to make those ideas a reality, you need to raise money.
That’s where crowdfunding comes in.
