Project Spotlight: Author Employs Crowdfunding to Translate Book Into English

Martijn Arets, author of Brand Expedition, is using crowdfunding to sell stock in the translation and production of his book. To bring his story of 20 prominent European brands to an English-speaking audience, Arets chose Symbid as his crowdfunding platform of choice. With Symbid, investors become actual shareholders in the project — meaning, the more books Arets sells, the more they earn.

“What I think is great about crowdfunding is that people who invest (minimum is €20 euro) become ambassadors of your project,” Arets told Crowdsourcing.org. “That’s a totally different story when you go to a bank: they don’t care a thing about what you do, as long as you will return their money (plus interest) on time.”


Crowdsourcing.org spoke with Arets to learn more about his crowdfunding project.
