Bars, pubs and restaurants can set up a free campaign to raise cash on the crowdfunding website, as they try to survive the Covid-19 crisis
‘In this time of crisis, we’re offering 100% free fundraising for your business along with support from Enterprise Nation,’ the organisation said.
The idea is that on-trade businesses can set up a free Pay it Forward campaign on the Crowdfunder website, as part of which they can offer customers the option to book now for meals, a room for the night or a ticket to an event, based on a promise to deliver in the future.
‘Here at Crowdfunder we know that businesses will need support beyond just cash. Over 80% of our projects get non-financial support from the crowd. We know that cash will be difficult for some people but by supporting your local, favourite businesses, if we all come together – might just get us all through this,’ says a statement on the website.
‘Over the past week the number of small businesses getting in touch to start Crowdfunder campaigns and for support through Enterprise Nation has risen sharply. Many are struggling with a snap downturn in custom which could see them go bust.’
Businesses who think they could benefit can register at here to set up a Pay it Forward campaign on the Crowdfunder website.
