With it being the holiday season, this post will be relatively brief as to not keep you from spending time with your friends and family. We would just like to wish you quick happy holidays and reflect on how amazing of a year 2015 was for crowdfunding.
A Quick Thank You
Whether you created campaigns, contributed, or simply spread awareness for your family or friends, we at Kapipal want to wish you a huge thank you for all you’ve done to make the world a better place. Countless medical bills, dream vacations, and ground-breaking ideas have been funded through your support. So thank you so much for your creativity, generosity and general awesomeness.
2015: Crowdfunding’s Best Year
In its early stages, crowdfunding began as what financial pundits call a “small market” with approximately $880 million crowdfunded in 2010 (I can’t believe $880 million is considered “small!”). Four years later, the crowdfunding industry saw massive growth generating $16 billion, with the estimated regional breakdown as follows:
This growth is progressing as the industry is projected to have nearly doubled once again, generating an estimated $34 billion in 2015. If those numbers are not shocking enough, consider this: latest projections have crowdfunding surpassing venture capital industry in 2016 as the main source for generating finances.
At Kapipal, we know that there is only one responsible for crowdfunding’s massive growth: You! So again, we want to take a moment to say thank you for doing all that you do!
Have a happy holiday season and let’s work together to make 2016 even better than 2015!
