Locals Alex McConduit and Marc Juneau have launched the city’s first ever reward based, crowdfunding platform designed for projects in and about New Orleans! FundDat is currently looking for 10 Featured Launch Projects to launch next month. FunDat also wants to spark crowdfunding conversations in the Crescent City& answer questions about its launch by hosting a series of meetings- Conversations on Crowdfunding which are set to happen September 10, 12 & 18.
Still unsure of what crowdfunding actually is? Well its a collective effort of individuals who network and pool their money, usually via the Internet, to support efforts initiated by other people or organizations. The popular technique is used to support several different activities such as disaster relief, start-up companies, artist by fans & political campaigns.
To find out more about this initiative, visit FundDat and attend some of the Conversations on Crowdfunding meeting series.
