The above lists don’t include sites like Ko-fihttps://ko-fi.com/, Buymeacoffeehttps://www.buymeacoffee.com/, or similar sites. That’s also not counting pledge manager sites like Backerkithttps://www.backerkit.com/, CrowdOxhttps://crowdox.com/, PledgeManagerhttps://www.pledgemanager.com/, etc. – Interesting Articles about Pledge Managers (good list to start if you are going to do a crowdfunding campaign).

According to Wikipediahttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crowdfunding#Platforms, it’s estimated there would be over 2,000 crowdfunding sites by 2016.

I will be doing posts about each of the crowdfunding and related sites I mentioned above in the coming weeks and months.
