How it works

We have a 10% acceptance rate. All campaign owners are interviewed and assessed based on our due diligence checks and our criteria
   

We work with a community of social entrepreneurs, creative experts, marketers, graphic designers and promoters to bring your idea to life.

Once you have finalised your funding goal and launch date, we ask for a small (refundable) deposit so that you can benefit from our office hours, personalised feedback, schedule and more.

We provide incubator-style support and help you get successfully funded.

will support a sustainable product, which will go on to create
