The world of crowdfunding is exploding in popularity. Take a look at just a few of these statistics:
- In North America alone, more than $17 billion is generated annually through crowdfunding.
- Funds raised through crowdfunding grew 33.7% in 2019.
- There were nearly 6.5 million campaigns run around the world last year.
Entrepreneurs from every corner of the globe are starting to understand the power of crowdfunding. And with all of this increased interest, comes increased challenges. For example, it can be harder to stand out from the crowd, and actually be seen by people who care about your product. That’s where Ideazon comes in. Ideazon is a crowdfunding agency which helps startup entrepreneurs successfully fund their projects. Ron Sandman is the Ideazon Chairman & advisor, and today, he’s sharing some of his company’s secrets, and discussing the state of the industry.
Ron, why is crowdfunding so crucial in today’s business landscape?
It used to be that startups and entrepreneurs had to fundraise by having boots on the ground to raise venture capital. It was an exhausting scene to be a part of, and plenty of good ideas got lost in the shuffle, because they didn’t know how to pitch to big backers. It was a really inaccessible way of raising funds for a project and shut out a lot of the little guys who were just getting started. Crowdfunding gives you essentially endless visibility, and it means anyone can make their startup dreams a reality.
Why do people need the guidance of a crowdfunding agency like Ideazon?
While the market is accessible, it’s starting to become oversaturated. Meaning there are tons and tons of great ideas out there, all vying for the same funds. So how do you stand out from the crowd? The thing with crowdfunding is that there are certain things you need to know to get it right, and certain boxes to tick to successfully raise your funds. It’s almost formulaic in a way. That’s why I believe, as an entrepreneur or a startup, it’s worth the investment to have expert guidance.
What does Ideazon do?
We have a proven strategy which will help fund your business. We not only crowdfund your project, but we take care of all the marketing, video assets, and consulting, which I think is beyond necessary. Our team is backed by crowdfunding professionals with years of experience.

Definitely. I’m really proud of the work we’re able to do with our entrepreneurs and startups. You can see on our website, but our products have raised more than a million dollars. We work with everyone, and I mean everyone, including first-time entrepreneurs, 18-year-old’s with big ideas, and serial entrepreneurs who barely have time to manage the project. We can take a project over the finish line, and overdeliver on our promises.
