Crowdfunding & Cause-Related Marketing
"The New Intersection of Commerce, Cause and Capital"
Cause-Related Marketing (CRM) has exploded in recent years even though it is a relatively young concept. Considering today's competitive environment, it has never been more important for startup and small businesses that separates them from their competition. Basically, CRM is where a non-profit and a for-profit corporation partner together with the purpose of advancing the mission-related work of the nonprofit and the marketing goals of the corporation or advisor. The purpose is to create a win-win situation for both participants. Crowdfunding has changed the way small businesses and start-ups are raising capital. Crowdfunding is a way of raising finance by asking a large number of people each for a small amount of money. It has significantly grown in recognition and uses the internet to talk to thousands, if not millions of potential funders.
