Crowdfunding inside the Enterprise: Employee-Initiatives for Innovation and Collaboration

Muller, M.,
Geyer, W.,
Soule, T.,
Daniels, S.
CHI 2013: Changing Perspectives, Paris, France

Authors describe a first experiment in enterprise crowdfunding – i.e., employees allocating money for employee-initiated proposals at an Intranet site, including a trial of this system with 511 employees in IBM Research. Major outcomes include: employee proposals that addressed diverse individual and organizational needs; high participation rates; extensive interdepartmental collaboration, including the discovery of large numbers of previously unknown collaborators; and the development of goals and motivations based on collective concerns at multiple levels of project groups, communities of practice, and the organization as a whole. They recommend further, comparative research into crowd- funding and other forms of employee-initiated innovations.

Crowdfunding models: Keep-it-all vs. All-or-nothing

Cumming, D. J.,
Leboeuf, G.,
Schwienbacher, A.
Paris December 2014 Finance Meeting EUROFIDAI - AFFI Paper

Reward-based crowdfunding campaigns are commonly offered in one of two models: the “Keep-It-All” (KIA) model and the “All-Or-Nothing”  (AON) model. Authors show that small, scalable projects are more likely to be funded through the KIA scheme, while large non-scalable projects are more likely to be funded through the AON scheme. Overall, KIA campaigns are less successful in meeting their fundraising goals, consistent with a risk-return tradeoff for entrepreneurs, where opting for the KIA scheme represents less risk and less return for the entrepreneur.

Crowdfunding social ventures: a model and research agenda

Lehner, O. M.
Routledge Venture Capital Journal

Crowdfunding in a social entrepreneurship (SE) context is praised in media narrations for its multifaceted potential. From an academic point of view, little has been written about crowdfunding as a whole, and inquiries from the social entrepreneurship sphere are mostly concerned with donation based crowdfunding. This paper first reviews extant literature on financing social ventures and crowdfunding. Based upon the findings, the author draws up a schema of crowdfunding's inner workings and subsequently discusses it in a social entrepreneurship context. From this model, a research agenda consisting of eight themes is derived: types and utility-functions; corporate governance; investor relations, reporting and risk; opportunity recognition; networking; legitimacy; financial metrics; and legal and regulatory hurdles.

Crowdfunding Support Tools: Predicting Success & Failure

Greenberg, M. D.,
Hariharan, K.,
Gerber, E.,
Pardo, B.
CHI 2013: Changing Perspectives, Paris, France

The authors are building a tool for novice project creators to get feedback on their project designs. One component of this tool is a comparison to existing projects. As such, they have applied a variety of machine learning classifiers to learn the concept of a successful online crowdfunding project at the time of project launch. Currently their classifier can predict with roughly 68% accuracy, whether a project will be successful or not. The classification results will eventually power a prediction segment of the proposed feedback tool. Future work involves turning the results of the machine learning algorithms into human-readable content and integrating this content into the feedback tool.
