Crowdfunding (aka "We need resources")

This talk was delivered along my colleague Yorel Moreda to the URT project team members, in the University of Oviedo.

It's a quick introduction to the crowdfunding's model where we discussed its different "flavors", as well as their utility and the common mistakes people commit when applying them.
