I had to revert to a crowd funding website a couple of years ago when my son was undergoing health issues. Indiegogo.com is one of the best ones out there. It is the platform that I personally used. I wanted to go with the ones that were well known since I didn't want my funders to get scammed or anything. Gofundme.com is another brilliant website that I looked into. However, the indiegogo.com had more cases like ours and I thought it would be best for my fund. Hope this helps.

Use the Crowd Funding that agrees to give you the money be it Kickstarter or whomsoever is the flavor of the month , they are the next best thing to friends and family.
But there are other more reliable sources of funding that can be explored depending on your business model and which publicly traded corp can benefit from your product or service directly or indirectly
I don't like the crowd fund model. I stick with standard Business Loan and MCA funding options.
