Crowdfunding (CF) platforms are a popular way to solicit charitable donations and raise funds for projects or business ventures. With CF platforms, access to funds has expanded for start-up companies and for micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs).

CF refers to the financing method of pooling small amounts of money from a large number of people to finance charitable causes, campaigns, projects or business ventures.
