CrowdIt has announced a contest for new crowdfunding project submissions to its site. Based on the success of the company’s initial launch contest, CrowdIt will match the winning project’s fundraising efforts with 10 percent of the project goal up to $10,000.
“CrowdIt offers a much more well-rounded experience and support system richer than today’s first-generation crowdfunding sites,” said Jason Graf, co-founder and CEO of CrowdIt. “We have embraced an opportunity to extend the value of crowdfunding beyond the funding vessel. By bringing business networking and support services into the crowdfunding experience, CrowdIt is providing an opportunity for people to access a community support system giving these ventures a better chance at ultimate success.”
Launched just five months ago, CrowdIt now has over 250 projects listed on their platform. CrowdIt’s strategy for crowdfunding success extends beyond just raising money by incorporating social interaction, mentoring and business networking to create an empowered community, focused on achievement and success. CrowdIt is re-defining the New American Dream by empowering people – whether individuals pursuing projects, supporters of funding campaigns or business experts and VCs – to play an active and important role in the crowdfunding process.
Eligible crowdfunding projects interested in competing for a chance to win matching funds of up to 10 percent of your crowdfunding goal, please visit CroweIt today for more information. The contest starts February 1, 2014 in line with CrowdIt’s 2.0 release and runs for 30 days giving dreamers time to promote their projects and secure the necessary funds for success.
Based in Springfield, MO, CrowdIt offers more than a place to raise capital. It is a community of Dreamers, Believers and Suits who believe in the power of an idea, passion or project. CrowdIt presents an end-to-end crowdfunding community that promotes success after funding, through networking, peer review and expert advice. A start-up, CrowdIt is privately held and backed by venture capital firm Baron VC.
