Thank you very much for your discussion,
I have read the replies with interest. I can agree with Robert, to succesfully crowdfund a startup takes time and a lot of preparation. The quality of the preparation predicts the success of the campaign.
Based on our experience as a firm that designs and manages crowdfunding campaigns (and other financing options) in close cooperation with our clients and never stand alone.
We don't wish to crowdfund a campaign succesfully one-time but make sure that our client can continue to crowdfund and crowdsource many other future campaigns.
In your case of 'Nimbusframe.net' we would advice against Indiegogo, because it has not much traction of its own and a very low success rate.
We advise entrepreneurs like you to find 10% of the required working capital first, this requires another approach, but with that 10% you have the budget for the right experts and marketing, and the 10% investors are carefully selected and asked to invest. These investors, their expertise, access to networks etc also determines the success of the campaign.
If you wish to know more than feel free to contact me.
With kind regards,
Financing Europe BV
