Blog 004 – Published March 2022
Indiegogo is an online crowdfunding platform, but what is it all about and how can you get involved to create change? Keep reading and find out below!
How can Indiegogo help you?
Indiegogo is a platform that gives entrepreneurs the chance to turn their ideas into reality by providing a place where they can launch new products and ideas. Millions of people visit the site looking for new and exciting ideas that can solve everyday problems. They can also find the latest innovations in tech and design before they become mainstream. Since Indiegogo started in 2008, visitors to the page can read the stories that inspired entrepreneurs to start their projects, evaluate every stage of product development, assess potential risks associated with the project and fund ideas they want to see succeed. Supporting a crowdfunding project on platforms like Indiegogo means helping a project that is it still a work-in-progress and carries some risk, but in return you are receiving perks such as products, services or events as a thank you for your contribution. We actually have a blog post all about crowdfunding! If you want to learn more, click here.
How is FunDonor using the Indiegogo platform?
Indiegogo and FunDonor share the same values and a mission to empower people everywhere to create change and bring ground-breaking products and ideas to life. Like FunDonor, the idea for Indiegogo came from personal stories, as the founders built upon their own struggles to get funding for their projects. We’ll be running a live crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to support the creation of our own platform which will see young people and influencers come together to help raise money for charity. In return, donors will receive a lifelong stake in FunDonor and become part of our logo. There will also be other exciting perks!
How can I get involved?
You can browse Indiegogo’s pages to see all the projects currently looking for funding and check out their help section for guides on how to choose campaigns and assess the risks involved. FunDonor’s pre-page will soon launch where you’ll be able to see the perks we’re offering and the target we aim to achieve. For updates on when our campaign is going live subscribe to our newsletter here or follow us on social media. If you want to start your own campaign on Indiegogo, create an exciting and engaging page with a fun video to show what your project is all about. Make sure you read through the T&Cs so you know what can and can’t be offered as a perk and put the word out there before you launch to get the most out of your campaign.
