“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.” -Steve Jobs
At StartSomeGood, we love the crazy ones, the innovators, the change-makers. If that sounds like you, we will do everything we can to help you succeed. If you’re committed to achieving your goal, we’re committed to helping you get there.
StartSomeGood exists to help as many social entrepreneurs and community groups meet their funding goals as possible. We were founded to help foster innovation and support new changemakers.
We do that in a number of ways: by providing a beautiful, easy-to-use website with great fundraising and sharing tools; by working hard to give great advice and coaching; and by linking your campaign to great funding opportunities and a community of potential supporters who care about creating a better future.
When you start a project with StartSomeGood, you’ll have access to our global support team to help shape and optimize your campaign. Once you launch, we’ll be sharing your campaign through our social media channels and looking for opportunities to promote your project to media and partners.
Our community is filled with people who – like you – strive to make the world better. Like you, they’re interested in new approaches to creating social change and inspired by the entrepreneurs and organizations stepping forward to make it happen. If you’re launching a social enterprise or fundraising for a social cause this is a much more targeted and relevant community than arts-focused or generalist platforms.
But none of these factors alone are why we have one of the very best campaign success rates of any crowdfunding platform. It’s because of the commitment of the entrepreneurs and organizations using our site and their ability to inspire a community around them. We simply do our best to help boost their efforts.
And it’s not just helping via advice or cheering you on, we’ve designed StartSomeGood with a model that we believe helps you succeed, and key to that is our unique Tipping Point model, which combines the best elements of traditional “All or Nothing” and “Keep What You Raise” crowdfunding.
In particular, it is far superior to “Keep What You Raise” in helping projects reach their goals. That’s what we mean by being committed to reaching your goal. You put a line in the sand and commit to raising the funding you need to make your campaign really happen, which gives potential donors the confidence to know that their funds will really go towards an activity they care about.
Our model, advice and support helps you optimize your crowdfunding campaign to give you the best chance of success. But don’t take our word for it. Listen to what past campaigners and current community members have to say:
“Trek To Teach is growing faster than I anticipated and without a doubt, that is because of StartSomeGood’s support” – Brad Hurwitz, Founder Trek to Teach
“I really appreciate the quick feedback. I love StartSomeGood and I look forward to future campaigns and paying it forward by supporting other social entrepreneurs!” – Brandon Greene, Out the Mouths of Babes
