    • There are three main reasons why people unconnected to a project or business would support it:• 1. They connect to the greater purpose of the campaign• 2. They connect to a physical aspect of the campaign like the rewards• 3. They connect to the creative display of the campaign’s presentation• What Is Crowdfunding And How Does It Benefit The Economy - Forbes http://www.forbes.com/sites/tanyaprive/2012/11/27/what-is-crowdfunding-and-how-does-it-benefit-the- economy/
