FundRazr will be at the center of a new television program covering crowdfunding campaigns from Canada and the US.
The new half-hour TV show is produced by Merton Park Film Studios of Toronto. Each episode will focus on six or seven inspiring projects that will provide audience members with insight into the project, thereby giving campaigners extra exposure and hopefully, an added financial boost.
Jordan Whelan, Merton’s Executive Producer, said “the FundRazr platform has some important features, such as increased security and advanced social media technology, which provide his show participants with benefits that didn’t seem to be available from other companies.”
“Being selected as the preferred platform for this kind of innovative project is definitely a vote of confidence,” said FundRazr founder Daryl Hatton. “The reach of TV, combined with the show’s high value sponsor perks and the FundRazr platform, promise to break new ground in the industry.”
Hatton expects the TV Show relationship to vault FundRazr’s business volume significantly as it battles with larger rivals Indiegogo and Kickstarter for the burgeoning crowdfunding market.
Season 1 of the upcoming TV series, the Crowd Funder show, launches September 22nd on FOX affiliate WUTV.
