Any platform carrying a goal of taking market share from Kickstarter is going to have a long road ahead, but that is precisely what JumpStartCity hopes to accomplish. They’re reaching out to their network of followers and fans to build a larger social reach in an effort to grow and compete with the world’s most prolific crowdfunding platform.
Thunderclap is a platform that encourages social sharing via timed & focused social media campaigns. You can see more information about the JSC Thunderclap campaign by clicking here. The complete newsletter is available here. A quote follows:
Jump Start City is not just another crowdfunding site. The 3-stage funding model, the Promoter feature, and the opportunity for community members (you!) to get paid make what is going on here unique and exciting. But, as with any great startup, there has to be a tribe of supporters behind it pushing a grassroots movement.
