Title: “Learning Through Crowdfunding” (with Gilles Chemla)

Abstract: We develop a model where reward-based crowdfunding enables firms to obtain a reliable proof of concept early in their production cycle. The information gathered from a subsample of backers through a fixed length pre-selling campaign enables firms to update their beliefs about the preferences of all future consumers. This creates a valuable real option as firms invest only if updated demand is high. Further, such updating mitigates moral hazard: the higher the funds raised, the lower the firms' incentives to divert them. Our results are consistent with stylized facts and provide new testable implications.
