Professor Hasnan Baber research on donation-based crowdfunding
Crowdfunding has become a popular way to raise funds. It is successful in funding start-ups when equity or lending/reward-based incentives are included; however, complete donation based crowdfunding is an area where people contribute towards an idea or social cause with no real financial return expected.
Professor Hasnan Baber looks at factors that contribute to donation-based political crowdfunding. This research will be helpful for aspiring entrepreneurs and social organizations to raise funds to pursue their dreams and help others.
Professor Baber's recently published article titled "Intentions to participate in political crowdfunding- from the perspective of civic voluntarism model and theory of planned behavior” can be found in the journal Technology in Society.
