In a crowdfunding space dominated by news of large platforms like Kickstarter and Indiegogo, some good alternatives may go overlooked. Fundable is one platform that demands the consideration of anyone looking for funding for their idea, product or cause.
Fundable is based in Columbus, Ohio and also has an office in Santa Monica, California. It is the brainchild of a group of serial entrepreneurs who have dedicated their careers to helping entrepreneurs thrive. Now they’re betting on crowdfunding in a big way, and they’ve created a network of investors and a suite of tools to help those in search of capital.
Reasons to consider Fundable
Fundable pays specific attention to the process leading up to a raise. “A successful Crowdfund requires advance planning, a lot of leg work from the entrepreneur behind a project, and a strong marketing push,” said Laura Moller, Fundable’s Media Relations Coordinator. “At Fundable, we recognize that entrepreneurs also need support as they gear up to launch their campaign. We provide tools to help guide them through their fundraise and help them get started on marketing and media outreach prior to launch. We provide startups with a guide to market their crowdfund, as well as target media contacts for them to pitch. We also provide consulting services for startups looking for extra support during their campaign.”
Fundable shares office space with the Go BIG Network, a social network of accredited investors that Go BIG can reach out to when presented with a tantalizing investment opportunity. Fundable looks to build upon this idea when crowdfunding for equity becomes legal in the United States. Go BIG was founded in 2004, making it one of the first funding platforms in the world. It now boasts over 400,000 members and 20,000 active accredited investors.
Offerings for Fundable are curated so that only the best make it onto the platform. If your company is lucky enough to make it through the application process, you can expect one on one support and guidance that isn’t typical of some of the other larger crowdfunding platforms.
As far as what types of companies are built for Fundable, Moller shared, “Companies that are looking for idea stage capital and support for their business are a great fit for Fundable because we offer the most comprehensive platform and a phenomenal support team to help them launch with impact.”
