Crowdfunding is an online money-raising strategy that began as a way for the public to donate small amounts of money, often through social networking websites, to help artists, musicians, filmmakers and other creative people finance their projects. Through Indiana’s new crowdfunding rules, small businesses and entrepreneurs are able to tap into the “crowd” in search of investments to finance their business ventures.

Hoosier entrepreneurs and Hoosier investors can now connect for the first time to finance start up business over the Internet. Entrepreneurs can raise up to $2 million and investors can invest up to $5,000 in a new start up opportunity.
