Crowdfunding is a revolutionizing way for small businesses to raise capital for their projects and business ideas. It has helped raise over $5.1 billion and successfully funded more than a million start-ups worldwide in 2013. By 2025, global crowdfunding platforms are expected to raise almost $90 billion.

Enderun Extension, JCI Manila, The Spark Project, and Crowdsourcing Week, will hold the first crowdfunding conference in the Philippines – CSW Summit Manila: Philippine Crowdfunding Conference – on March 18 at The Tent at Enderun Colleges.
