Crowdfunding is revolutionizing everything from philanthropy to microlending by allowing many small donors or lenders to pool their resources online to support a common goal. Two of the most innovative new organizations in the space are CrowdRise, a charity fundraising site, and Zidisha, which connects microfinance lenders directly with global borrowers. Actor Edward Norton and Robert Wolfe, co-founders of CrowdRise, Julia Kurnia, director of Zidisha, and Robert Schiff, a Partner of McKinsey, share their thoughts on how the sector is evolving.

The material is drawn from interviews and email correspondence with the participants.
