Funderbuilt, a crowdfunding portal based in Southeast Michigan, launched on July 4th to service all types of fundraising needs and models, including donations to charitable causes, reward-based contributions to creative and business endeavors, and equity-based investments in new businesses and products.crowdfunding marketing
While most crowdfunding platforms take a percentage of a project owner's raised funds with no upper limit, Funderbuilt's fee is never more than $250, so project owners keep more of the money they raise (Funderbuilt keeps 5% of the funding goal or $250, whichever is less). The portal also provides what's called a FunderFactor, a quick and easy way to gauge a project's progress and the efforts of the project owner. Once a project is launched, the portal recommends that users utilize the Funderbuilt Toolbox and To-Do list to continue building support for their project.crowdfunding advertising
"Our goal is to attract the best projects and the best funding sources and put those two groups together – that's where the magic happens," said David Moncur, Chief Marketing Officer, Funderbuilt. "Our flat fee pricing model is revolutionary to the industry and we go all out to help project owners be successful with their projects. Our platform has systematized the entire process so it's easy to upload a project, then learn exactly what you need to do on each day of your crowdfunding campaign to maximize the likelihood of success."
With the launch of Funderbuilt, Cincinnati, OH-based Fifth Third Bank has announced that it will refer business opportunities to the crowdfunding portal that may not fit the bank's traditional lending requirements, but have a solid business plan, management, etc.indiegogo marketing
"The exciting thing about crowdfunding is that it provides much easier access to capital for smaller entrepreneurs, and I believe that it may well revolutionize the formation of new businesses, providing badly needed positive momentum for our economy," said Mark Morrison, Vice President, Team Lead Commercial Middle Market, Fifth Third Bank. "As a banker, one of the most important factors for lending is cash flow and crowdfunding could help fund the gap until an entrepreneurial business establishes the cash flow necessary to qualify them for a loan. We look forward to working with Funderbuilt as a referral source for start ups and small businesses who don't meet lending requirements."kickstarter marketing
