We live in an exciting age where anyone can turn ideas into realities—the possibilities for innovation and social entrepreneurship are virtually endless. With services like Kickstarter, IndieGogo, GoFundme and crowd-sourced microfinance opportunities like Kiva available to everyone, individual backers’ direct impact is more powerful than ever. From independent films to lifesaving shelter projects, contributing to your favorite projects from home is easy and rewarding.

There’s a lot to learn from the marketing strategies, fundraising challenges, and small business tips behind successfully crowdfunded projects. PRI’s Global Nation is a great example of how a Kickstarted idea can spread the word using Flipboard Magazines. Plan your next big venture from inkling to execution with these 5 helpful magazines:

Ideation by Joe Senft: Before any great crowdfunding project, there has to be a great idea. Here are some thoughts on cultivating new ideas.

Idea?Business (Brainstorming Creativity of Nothingness) by raúl…in ATL: The next step is turning your “eureka” moment into a viable enterprise, so study the strategies that have helped others realize their dreams.

Creative Crowdfunding—Kickstarter, Indiegogo, and More! by Erik Olsen: Some of the best tech, design and creative projects from across the crowdfunding universe.
