Crowdfunding Day is observed next on Thursday, March 14th, 2024 (11 days from today).
Crowdfunding Day is an annual celebration held on March 14. Every year, different organizations raise funds for different issues and causes. Meanwhile, crowdfunding becomes increasingly popular and is a trendy way to raise money for any business using the internet. Crowdfunding is useful for people who are looking to get capital, build a strong customer base, confirm new products, and people who are waiting to pre-order their products. Crowdfunding Day celebrates this practice of funding profitable business ventures.
History of Crowdfunding Day
Crowdfunding was born since the 1800s and Auguste Comte is its founder, who is the famous French philosopher and sociologist. He introduced the sociological theory of Positivism to the world through his historical work.
Positivism refers to the relationship between the dependence of theory and observation, relying on the scientific method to ensure authentic knowledge. Although this abstraction was partly founded by Comte, Comte used this ideology to help fund his research as a philosopher, eventually creating forms of fundraising from the first community.
As the first successful crowdfunding, the philosopher published his work on March 14 in 1850.
The term “crowdfunding” appeared since 1997 when a British rock band funded their reunion through online donations from their fan. ArtistShare has since become the first company to create a crowdfunding platform, and since then, the crowdfunding industry has continued to grow ever since.
Today, crowdfunding is an important part of the economic success of many businesses and continues to grow. In 2015, crowdfunding campaigns received a total of $34 billion globally, more than double the annual budget for the US NASA program.
It is predicted that this industry will grow up to about $300 billion by 2025, so take the time to celebrate crowdfunding, one of the main ways the projects you love can take off become reality.
