Crowdfunding Events Platform Fully Funded on Seedrs
As reported earlier this month, Exeter based CrowdCanDo – a crowdfunding platform for events of all types – is crowdfunding on Seedrs. The raise was for 10% equity for the crowdfunding platform. The organisers were seeking £22,000 and they have hit their goal.
The web site is still under development and expects to launch in 2014.
The pitch was approved for the Seedrs platform this past June and crowdfunding commenced in early July.
The founder Paul Keating, a former events organizer, used his past experience regarding the risks and benefits of organizing events to develop the plan for the site. The site will allow for flexible or fixed funding and paid or free events.
Funds raised will be used to finance their beta launch. The platform is currently seeking early adopters to test their forthcoming platform. The company is also in the running to win £10,000 in the Smarta100.
