The $65 billion picture

Welcome to #MondayFundDay!

We here at DigVentures caught on to the potential of crowdfunding almost immediately. As early adopters, we knew it was an absolute slam-dunk in terms of reaching new audiences, involving the public, and financing archaeology. We’ve had our successes, and we’ve cheered from the sidelines as other archaeology and heritage projects had a go at it too. We believe that crowdfunding is here to stay – and it will certainly always form a part of the work that we do.

But what the heck do we know? Don’t believe us! But you’d better believe the infographic below, which we pinched from an article. Crowdfunding is MORE than here to stay – it’s going to revolutionise the world – creating jobs, income streams, and opportunities for growth in every sector of human endeavour.

Take a look at the infographic below, and fasten your seatbelt for all the innovation that crowdfunding will pour into the world in 2014! Want to learn more? We offer bespoke crowdfunding training courses and sessions.
