How does crowdfunding work?

Large groups of people pool together small individual investments to provide the capital needed to get a company or project off the ground. Individuals, charities or companies can create a campaign for specific causes and anyone can contribute.
How does Rocket hub work?
Basically, you plug the device into an outlet and within a couple of minutes it is connected to Rogers’ HPSA 3G+ network and you’re ready to connect your devices. Each hub has a key associated with it for security, and you type that in to your WiFi security settings on each device you want to connect.
Do you pay crowdfunding back?
Loan-based crowdfunding means that investors get their money back, usually with interest. And with investment-based crowdfunding, people put money in, usually for a share of your business. So they’ll see the value of their shares rise and fall, but you don’t need to pay back their investment.
What makes RocketHub different from other crowdfunding sites?
RocketHub offers a Reward (or Goods) crowdfunding model. This feature makes them stand out from the competition in the crowdfunding market because some funding is better than no funding for new first-time fundraisers. So if you raise $10,000, you get to keep the $10,000 (after fees-see next section for details).
