Sounds like an exciting proposition.
There are a ton of Crowdfunding websites out there so you need to make sure yours stands above the rest. Are you targeting a specific niche or do you have a special hook that gives you your unique selling point? Think about why someone would raise or invest funds on your site against the others available.
Building the site is pretty straightforward as it’s a an e-commerce platform with built-in facility for a forum and account section. There’s aren’t really any ‘off the shelf’ platforms for the crowdfunding model but a web build doesn’t need to be expensive (don’t let anyone tell you otherwise).
If you need any further help then just Google me and I will point you in the direction of some great developers.
