Crowdfunding involves raising small amounts of money from a large group of people in exchange for goods and services. This group is often referred to as a "crowd", but despite common belief, this crowd does not exist. You have to build it. UpEffect exists to serve this purpose. We believe businesses have the means to tackle social injustice, climate change, global poverty, illiteracy and more. All they need is the right crowdfunding support, guidance and opportunity to turn their idea into a successful venture.
We were crowdfunding for the first time and UpEffect hugely supported us with personalised coaching and effective tools. With their expert guidance at every step, our campaign was a 100% success! Their entire coaching process was tailored to our needs and has empowered us to execute crowdfunding campaigns confidently.
I loved the professionalism of UpEffect's team, the great pieces of advice on the marketing strategy for the campaign, the way to approach the press and influencers, the feedback on content and visuals. In a nutshell, the permanent strive for making us ready for the launch, maximizing our chances of success.

UpEffect is very important and is pioneering in creating social change. The platform is great! The team is always available! The UpEffect team has been incredible in answering our troubleshooting questions in split-seconds!
UpEffect has certainly surpassed my expectation for a crowdfunding platform. The team is very supportive and available 24x7, always on their toes, solving issues faster than you can raise them. There are so many social problems in the world, many problem solvers and so many people who are willing to support. Something like UpEffect is so much needed. Many more crowdfunding campaigns to come from me.

My experience with UpEffect was wonderful. From regular Skype sessions, to make sure we were on track, to valuable guidance on marketing and filmmaking, I had a thorough learning experience interacting with you. Once again, I cannot thank you enough for your support. Moreover, your flexibility in times of unexpected issues was extremely helpful and I appreciate you for it.

Using UpEffect for our crowdfunding launch was an important first step for our social enterprise. The UpEffect team gave us the structure and direction needed to successfully reach our fundraising goal of £10,000 - a target that we thought was beyond our reach. With genuine interest in our social objective and close help from their team, we wouldn't be where we are today without UpEffect.

My utmost gratitude goes to team UpEffect for being there day and night for the past 4 months of our pre-launch preps. Knowing the fact they only support campaigns offering ethical products that are good for people and the planet. Very friendly and approachable team. Their want to succeed was almost infective as it catches up with you and you won't settle for less after that! It was fun and exciting working with your team.
