Crowdfunding for Startups

We build and run Kickstarter / Indiegogo crowdfunding campaigns and provide marketing for equity financing rounds. In 2016 and 2017, our clients were 100% funded through rewards crowdfunding or equity funding.

We've helped clients raise $9.5 Million in capital. They have gone on to raise an additional $10 Million in angel and VC funding.

We are experts in Crowdfunding, Copy Writing, Branding, Web Design/ Graphic Design, Social Media, Digital Advertising, and Videography. See our services.

We provide fresh and engaging marketing for capital raising campaigns and are a strategic advisor to our clients and their teams. We work with big and small budgets, founders and established small businesses. See our projects

Every project is customized to meet the client's needs. So if you're looking for a plug n' play option, we're not a fit. Instead, we talk about the product, determine the needs, and build a custom approach.

Our clients appear in major media publications, pitch on Shark Tank, and sell their products in Brookstone, Walmart, Target and more.
