Crowdfunding is the process of raising funds for a project, idea or event on the internet by collecting a large number of small donations from many different people.

hubbub has developed a platform for people to post projects and raise money using a model of crowdfunding similar to the very successful Kickstarter website.

We have deployed this platform in the substantial education market, and are working on ways to roll this platform out to institutions within the sector, as well as working with partners in other market sectors to bring crowdfunding to new areas.

In the education market, our project creators are primarily students and our sponsors are primarily friends, family and alumni.

If project successfully raise funds, hubbub takes a 5% commission of the total raised. If a project does not reach its target, no money changes hands, and hubbub does not charge the users anything.
