Pave has a really interesting model in the crowdfunding space, and two recent features released by the team should only serve to strengthen their offering.
The first addition is endorsements, which make sense for a platform like Pave. First and foremost, Pave funds individuals. Those individuals (who are seeking funding, often largely from strangers) can now have other members of their community or network leave endorsements on their Pave page in hopes of establishing credibility and increasing their likelihood of success. Sound familiar? LinkedIn has this very feature, but it makes a lot of sense on a platform like Pave, too.
The second is a checklist that walks Pave prospects through the process of creating their campaign page. The tips, like “Get your first 40 Facebook likes,” are said to increase the prospect’s chances of success.
Of course, like any good harbinger of the crowd Pave is also requesting input from their users and fans on what to do next. Head on over to the Pave blog to leave your thoughts.
