What is crowdfunding? In short, it's a means of achieving a funding target by inviting anyone to 'back' an idea or product with cold, hard cash

Four-year-old US firm Kickstarter, in many ways, truly 'kickstarted' the concept, and with just over a year of accepting UK submissions, some ofNorthern Ireland's brightest enterprises have jumped on the bandwagon to raise tens of thousands of pounds in the process.

'Backers' can then donate as little as £1, or as much as £5,000 -- receiving a comparable 'package' of goods in return.
