But even then, with the world population so huge, placing your endeavor at the forefront of public attention for anyone willing to contribute to, is a purely brilliant idea. That is exactly what was playing in the mind of Boston musician Brian Camelio when he founded ArtistShare, the world’s oldest crowdfunding website for creative professionals, in 2003. Following the immense success of this brave new idea, other websites soon followed suit, and crowdfunding, became a full-fledged industry.
