Bloom Venture Catalyst, a UK based project crowdfunding site, has announced commission free crowdfunding for any female projects launched on Friday, March 8th. This special offer is in recognition of International Women’s Day.
In a statement on their site they highlighted the challenges women face still today,
Historically women have found it difficult to access traditional funding for their businesses, and nowadays everyone is struggling to raise the funding they need for charities, social enterprises or community groups. But crowdfunding is changing the game; our statistics show that women are more successful than men at crowdfunding and we want to help them start or grow the business of their dreams.
On InternationWomensDay, BloomVC shared their encouraging data in regards to crowdfunding and female businesses,
But crowdfunding is changing the game; our statistic show that women are more successful than men at crowdfunding and we want to help them start or grow the business of their dream and raise essential cash for the causes close to their hearts.
We are feisty forty-somethings bucking the trend of trendy twenty-somethings at the heart of the social revolution.
We have started businesses, grown businesses, lost businesses and started all over again. We have experience of success, reward, failure, excitement, frustration and the challenges of starting a business venture from scratch.
So who better to help you startup?
