Chapter 7: Crowdfunding as a tool for innovation marketing: technology entrepreneurship commercialization strategies

Ferran Giones and Alexander Brem

Beyond that, it has also established a new method of innovation marketing, especially for high-tech products: using crowdfunding to find out if there is a market for the product.

For this, a market theory perspective is taken on crowdfunding platforms, with implications for theory and practice.
