My current project (www.moment-rec.com) is getting close to a stage where I will need external funding to continue.
I think doing a crowdfunding would be ideal for me, because the people who would normally buy such a product will be the people funding. That means crowdfunding would be a market verification at the same time.
I’m considering the following platforms at the moment:
Probably the biggest platform besides indiegogo. Probably also raises the highest funding per project. Has a history of viral projects. But also a history of epic fails. There’s also a real danger to drown in the noise…
Much smaller, but focused on hardware projects. Raises much less money. Maybe not enough for Moment-Rec. Positive: different plans. If you give them 15% (instead of 5%) then they help you with marketing.
We carefully curate all the projects that launch on Crowd Supply. The majority of project submissions don’t make our cut.
I’m also looking for a european crowdfunding site. Do you have any idea/experience?
