“Since FringeBacker has started in Hong Kong, we have seen crowdfunding evolve into different fundraising sectors, from charitable to personal crowdfunding. It is not limited to creative projects, starting up businesses or producing a product. FringeBacker’s online system empowers people with advance features to build a campaign around what they are passionate about, encourage like-minded people to follow them through their creative or personal journey, and also gain traction for new followers. We allow people the capacity to define their own success in different ways, so there is really no one way that you can crowdfund for your cause,” said Maryann Hwee, Executive Director of FringeBacker.

With the recent surge of crowdfunding platforms, Maryann Hwee from Hong Kong’s pioneer platform FringeBacker, hopes that more people are able to finance their ideas through crowdfunding. “Even if you are not part of a big corporate, you can still do it your own way, using small funds to gain sizable support for your project.”
