Brazil: Crowdfunding Site Celebrates a Year of Life

Catarse, Brazil's biggest crowdfunding site celebrates one year of life this week [pt] – with some interesting visualizations. Catarse has had over 15,000 Brazilians support 278 projects, of which 146 were successful. This raised over R$1.3 million (US$727.4 thousand). Not surprisingly for Brazil, the most successful type of project is music. [GV reported on crowdfunding in Brazil in 2011.]
