    Equity Crowdfunding:

    Definition, found on Investopedia
    Raising money from small public investors (who collectively form the "crowd") primarily through online forums and social media.
    In exchange for relatively small amounts of cash, investors get a proportionate slice of equity in a business venture. In the past, business owners raised such funds by borrowing from friends and family, applying for a bank loan, appealing to angel investors, or by going to a private equity or venture capital firm.
