Crowdfunding is defined as a way to raise funds for the financing of projects of individuals and organizations on a nonrepayable, debt or shareholder basis within an investment or non-investment model from an unlimited range of individuals and organizations through special Internet sites. It is noted that at the initial stage people of artistic professions prevailed among users of crowdfunding. But gradually its benefits began to attract of innovative entrepreneurs. For start-ups, such support becomes an alternative to grants of special funds, as well as to venture financing. The types of crowdfunding are analyzed.

Attention is drawn to the problems encountered by all participants in the process. The draft law on crowdfunding is analyzed; attention is drawn to the controversy of the objects of its regulation.en_GB
