Before supporting a startup’s crowdfunding request, BBB recommends doing your research. When you donate to a startup, it’s important to know who is behind the call for investors. Research the person or company behind the campaign to see if they have a track record for fulfilling promises. You also want to know if they have had successful campaigns in the past.
