Crowdfunder , one of the first online platforms that enables businesses to raise funds through a social network, today announced the launch of its Social Enterprise Hub. The hub will serve as a community on Crowdfunder for social entrepreneurs and investors to connect around the growth and funding of for-profit social enterprises, helping to scale the impact that investors make with their dollars.
“Crowdfunding is inherently social,” said Chance Barnett, co-founder and CEO of Crowdfunder. “We are using the power of crowdfunding to accelerate impact investment and contribution, bringing a wave of new investors and capital to social enterprises. Consumers increasingly want their purchases to help support social impact, and we’re giving investors access to some of the most creative and meaningful social enterprises to help them reach their goals. We are thrilled to launch it at this time of year, where individuals and corporations are seeking greater impact through public good.”
