Part of the BestMasters book series (BEST)


Based on a broad review of existing literature embracing the topic of this thesis, the following chapter will provide the theoretical foundation for the further work. The phenomenon of crowdfunding with all its different shapes will be captured by tearing it down into more general types of funding (subject) and the role that has been taken over by the internet, especially topics linked to Web 2.0 (context). All the themes which will be identified in chapter 2 will be subsumed in order to propose a model of the current setting of crowdfunding platforms. This proposition will be shown at the end of chapter 2 and will be the foundation for the research method that is applied for this work.
