On Thursday, NextGen Crowdfunding announced the season one premiere of the Crowdfunding Video Awards (CVAs). The season kickoff comes a couple of months after the company unveiled details about the CVAs, which will notably recognize the best pitch videos from both reward and equity crowdfunding campaigns.
As previously reported, the CVAs will provide campaign organizers new ways to promote crowdfunding campaigns and products to backers as well as potential investors. Viewers of the CVAs will also be able to vote for their favorite crowdfunding campaign videos. NextGen stated that season one of the CVAs kicks off on January 25th with a live-online show at 3 pm PT/ 6 pm ET. The first season will have five preliminary awards shows and will complete with a final seasonal awards show that highlights the best videos of the season as voted on by the public.
NextGen founder, Aubrey Chernick, stated:
“We received a wide variety of submissions from crowdfunding campaigns — spanning industries from technology to pets to wellness — to participate in the first season of the Crowdfunding Video Awards. The campaign videos we’ll be showing viewers over the course of this season showcase creativity, passion and the entrepreneurial spirit.”
