Crowdfunding is a method of capital formation for financing through collections, through Internet platforms, usually web pages, or other electronic media such as mobile applications. Following the global trend, in Ecuador a growing number of projects seek funding, particularly for the implementation of entrepreneurship and innovation projects. Similar to what has happened in other countries of the region and the world, in Ecuador have started operating crowdfunding platforms. Technology and entrepreneurship move faster than legislation, sometimes despite the risks involved. Currently, in Ecuador, the platforms have started their activities with the same unknowns as in those countries and as in others as well. At the moment there have been no changes to the legislation to facilitate the use of crowdfunding. However, in Ecuador it is possible to apply crowdfunding with existing national legislation without the need for reforms for its development.
