FundYou is not only a crowdfunding platform, but also offers an integrable widget that allows you to offer rewards directly from your company or project website. Engage backers from both B2B and B2C, and benefit from company backers showing as your campaign supporters.
For businesses and partners
As a company, what do you value the most? How do you show it?
We offer you the platform, where you can to express your company values by supporting startups, communities and creative initiatives.
For a startup, even the smallest amount of funding can help them get to the next step. Something that might be even more valuable, is a seal of approval from established operators, such as your company.
In return, you gain visibility as their official campaign sponsor. When you back a campaign, you can leave a testimonial which will show in the campaign. You also get to create valuable connections with pre-approved startups, analytics of their progress, and access rewards designed specially for companies.
HOW TO START A CAMPAIGN ON FUNDYOU?
#1 STEP - START YOUR CAMPAIGN PROCESS
Start your campaign process, get accepted and start the planning phase!
Prove your demand to backers and investors by running your own crowdfunding campaign. Setting up a crowdfunding campaign is a great way to test demand of products and services, and you can collect funds on the way!
Read our blog for tips on how to prepare well and make the best out of your crowdfunding campaign. Also check our FAQ for other ideas or questions you might have.
#2 STEP - DESIGN AN ACE CAMPAIGN
Fill in your profile and design an ace campaign with unique rewards!
What is the story behind your campaign and brand? What are you trying to achieve with crowdfunding? Write an appealing story and create attractive, unique rewards that are only available through your crowdfunding campaign.
Also consider these questions when creating your profile and rewards. What is your project's mission? Why are you doing this? What makes your campaign, project or product unique? What kind of audience would your campaign attract? How much funds do you think you could realistically raise?
The better you plan your campaign and do the work in advance, the better chances you will have reaching your funding goal.
After your campaign has been accepted on our platform and you have finalised your campaign profile with all necessary information, such as rewards, story, company information and Stripe account, contact us via email to request for your campaign to start.
#3 STEP - PRE-BACKING IN 'COMING SOON'
Prepare an impressive campaign launch in Coming Soon!
Did you know that the FundYou platform enables you to do early-bird backing in your campaign, even before the official campaign launch? This way you know which rewards work and which don’t. If necessary, you can make important changes before the official launch.
As your campaign profile and rewards are ready to be released, set your campaign into our Coming Soon mode and you will unlock the possibility for pre-backing! You may choose which rewards are available before or during the campaign.
The Coming Soon mode is especially designed for reaching company backers. It gives you time to create hype and reach big backers before the campaign officially opens. It can help you reach significant funding volumes in your crowdfunding campaign.
Note that you must reach 20% of your total funding goal in the Coming Soon mode, before your campaign goes live and starts showing in our active campaigns.
#4 STEP - GO LIVE
Start your crowdfunding campaign in Live mode!
By now you have ensured your first backers and contacted key people about your campaign, it's time to harvest.
Keep posting and reaching new audiences, create social media competitions and do whatever it takes to reach your funding goal.
At this point, you have sold 20 % of your funding goal in our Coming Soon mode. To start your campaign funding, contact us via email to open your campaign in Live mode.
#5 STEP - KEEP 'EM COMING
Post-campaign backing? Keep the backers coming with our easy e-commerce tool.
The fun doesn’t have to end! If you feel like you want to keep riding the wave of success, just keep the funding going after your campaign with our easy-to-use e-commerce tool.
The FundYou widget enables your backers checkout directly from your company website. You can either continue offering your campaign rewards longer, or create post-campaign rewards to existing backers.
