Crowdfunding as an Entrepreneurial Tool
As a social entrepreneur, platforms like Milaap and Fuel a Dream enabled me to gain traction, social proof, and validation for my project, School Ki Ghanti. Over the course of these two platforms, over 2500 GBP (2.5 Lakh Indian Rupees) were raised. It was a learning experience, from exploring funding models to campaign prospects.
Crowdfunding is built on social media and online networking. I learned that one must engage your audience online in order to raise awareness and receive contributions.
It is critical that you tell your story well. Crowdfunding enabled me to make a global pitch. It was quick, efficient, transparent, and efficient. Working with these crowdfunding platforms has given me the opportunity to explore and learn about the elaborate dashboard used to track the progress of the funding via a backend tool that also provides you with key analytics.
