A new crowdfunding platform was launched on Wednesday 31st August 2011 dedicated to help raise funds for Jewish and Israeli causes. JCrowd, is dedicated to helping causes and startups find funding and garner support via its platform that incorporates a social networking hub to help manage and promote the ventures.
JCrowd is powered by Invested.in, a site based in Los Angeles that specialises in cutting edge web designs geared to managing all aspects of any crowdfunding project.
According to Moshe Tokayer, CEO/Founder, JCrowd , " JCrowd is unique among crowdfunding platforms in that its own social network includes exactly the people who would most likely support Jewish and Israeli causes and startups. Fundraising campaigns that post to JCrowd are therefore more likely to receive support from and develop relationships with people outside project owners' immediate circle of friends."
