Crowdfunding model an option for rural Australia

Communities in rural Australia could adopt a model not dissimilar to the crowdfunding model, with local residents contributing to local infrastructure works and special projects. The Regional Solutions Framework aims to help locals add social value to their communities. Co-founder Robert Prestipino told the ABC: “There’s a whole segment out there of people who don’t necessarily want a hardcore commercial return. “As long as it goes into a project that is building a stronger community that has social value in it, there are people who really want to make a difference,” he said.
