Crowdfunding is an innovative financial instrument that is continuously
gaining importance in research and practice. In order to promote the
economic and theoretical discussion on this topic, a systematic overview
of the literature is essential. The present work represents a
literature-based research on crowdfunding to determine which research
topics have been addressed so far and whether or not a focus has been
developed on a particular topic, research stream, and model. The
literature review identified 90 scientific papers, published between
2011 and 2016. The study consequently develops seven research areas:
individual, managerial, legal, platform-based, sustainability-based,
innovation-related, and conceptual. Through this conceptualization and
the presentation of the current state of the research as well as the
determination of the future research potential, this work is relevant
for the academic debate on the organizational implications on
crowdfunding. In addition, the review supports practitioners, or in
particular crowdfunding initiators, to understand how crowdfunding
mechanisms function and to deduce consequences for successful
