Overview: Crowdfunding continues to grow at a dramatic rate, and to date, more dollars have been pledged to video games than any other category on Kickstarter. Until now, crowdfunding in the United States has been limited to the "donation" and "reward" models, but regulatory changes expected to take effect in the first half of 2014 will open the door for companies to raise capital by selling their stock online. Crowdfunding opportunities are expected to increase significantly - and virtually overnight. Indie developers need to understand the requirements, conditions and limitations for equity crowdfunding in order to understand whether this new funding source may be right for them.
