We’ve been in what CommunityFunded.com calls “Test Mode” since we first set up this website several months ago. That means we’ve been able to create crowdfunding test campaigns and see what they’ll look like on our site, but nobody can donate actual money… until now.
Now we are officially LIVE! (Though still in “stealth mode” which means we aren’t telling a lot of people about our site yet.) Community Funded took us out of Test Mode yesterday morning. We’ve launched one campaign that we want everyone to check out — it’s on our Campaigns page and is inviting you to contribute to our “Pre-Launch Party” by buying a ticket to the party.
YES this is a real party!
Buy a ticket and you can come. Everyone is welcome. The party will take place at ArtHouse here in Goshen, Indiana on Sunday September 28th at 7pm. Light food and drinks, brief teleconf with CommunityFunded, an entertaining slideshow, Q&A, and networking networking networking. Meet others who are actively involved in local crowdfunding here in Goshen. Scheme about your campaign ideas. If you want to add a Reward to this campaign, you can build it in your own CommunityFunded.com account and then “offer” it to our campaign. (And please let us know if you need any help with the technical details.) This first campaign has set a goal of $400. Anything beyond actual expenses for the party will go towards marketing and spreading the word about the site to a much larger audience.
Help us celebrate the progress made to date, and envision a more public launch in early fall!
