Major Brands, Portals and Partners now Powered by FundRazr
Vancouver, BC – FundRazr moved from stealth mode today with the introduction of CFaaST, (Crowdfunding as a Service Technology), the ability for customers to run a fully functional crowdfunding service on their own branded site, Powered by FundRazr. At the Entrepreneurs in a Global Marketplace session today, CEO Daryl Hatton explained, “We think the primary focus should be on the customer brand and the funding they are enabling. We’ve introduced a lightning-fast SaaS solution to plug, play and fund for brands with massive online customer bases in need of personal or project funding.”
The panel discussed the challenges of global expansion and a shared insight was a hyperlocal focus on the customer in each market. A platform model that adapts to localization and local partners and taps existing community is a recipe for success.
2013 has been good to FundRazr with over $31 Million raised in 18 countries and awards including 2013 TIA Most Promising Startup and as a winner of the Global Adventure competition sponsored by UK Trade & Investment. The industry-leading social network integration for Facebook, Google + and Twitter baked into the platform helps ensure much greater social visibility than simple social sharing and as a result, more funding.
