Sharify invites you to its Live Crowdfunding event on Thursday December 8th from 6.00 PM. It will take place at IHECS school in Brussels.
During Sharify's hackathon (December 2-3-4) several projects have been developed around the circular and collaborative economy thematic. After having worked hard during 48 hours the teams will get the chance to present their freshly born start-up to a broad public and to explain you their financial needs to go further.
Have you ever dreamt of investing in a young, innovative company or becoming a Business Angel? Through crowdfunding platforms, this is possible for everyone from 100 euros!
What exactly is a Live Crowdfunding?
The start-ups that have been created during Sharify's hackathon will have 6 minutes each to present their funding needs to an audience constitued of friends, families and anyone that would be interested in investing in a impactful project. The 10€ fee for this event will be donated in the project of your choice.
How does it work?
The teams will pitch their idea during the event and you will have the opportunity to donate these 10€ directly in your favorite project on the Hoolders website (https://hoolders.com/innovation/application/).
What if you want to donate in more than one project?
The 10€ fee will go in the first donation you will proceed via the platform on your smartphone. Extra donation will be more than welcome by the teams defending their projects. You are free to donate as much and as many times as you want. If you decide not to donate directly in a project the 10€ fee will go to the Sharify community for increasing its impact.
The donation conducted by the public are displayed in real time on a big screen. The whole event will be broadcasted live on the Sharify facebook page to allow internet users to watch the presentations and invest from home.
What if you really want to invest in the start-up?
These first donation will help the teams to further develop their minimum viable product (MVP) and prepare a real crowdfunding campaign for beginning of next year. It will then be the good timing for you to contribute to these change-making companies and expect more than a return on investment. It's thus a great opportunity for you to meet the teams and make your first-mover advantage.
