FundedByMe, a global crowdfunding platform based in Stockholm, Sweden, has recently added loan based crowdfunding and successfully launched a self-crowdfunding campaign. The platform is also accepting Bitcoin as part of a pilot program to test cryptocurrency integration. To meet the growing demands and expanding number of services, FundedByMe has hired additional staff.
“We constantly analyse what’s going on in the crowdfunding market and try to identify newly born trends and needs. We have noticed that generally speaking platforms lack of professional business client support. On the other hand the market is quite fragmented and customers look for more comprehensive services. These two observations encouraged us for further improvements at FundedByMe,” said CEO and co-founder Daniel Daboczy.
The list of new hires includes:
