Crowdfunding is the act of generating capital by requesting very small contributions from the general public online.  From KIVA to Kickstarter, Indiegogo, to Go Fund Me and GoGetFunding, there are many crowdfunding websites that help startups get cash on the Internet. How does it work?  How will the pending Jobs Act change things?  What do you need to know to be successful in this new form of obtaining cash for your business?
