In this paper, we build the crowdfunding process based on the quality signal and trust theory, and then summarize and select the useful factors by collecting data from famous crowdfunding platforms; then, we empirically analyse the factors that may impact the successful financing of the project. Furtherly, we introduce a new variable to improve the model. The empirical results show that these factors can significantly affect the project's successful financing.
