FLEVOLAND, 20161206 - Monday, December 5, 2016 a new crowdfunding platform for Small and Medium Business started: in2thecrowd. The company wants to bring good ideas from entrepreneurs further, so that the Dutch economy gets a boost. The motto is 'Financing the greatest ideas'.
Our country already has a large number of crowdfunding platforms. According to Huib van Vliet, one of the initiators, in2thecrowd goes a step further than just crowdfunding: "There are enough entrepreneurs with good plans, but sometimes they just need that extra coaching to get the capital together. We increasingly advise to use the combination of equity capital, a bank loan and crowdfunding. How much more will be possible? Especially for stimulating the economy, new jobs and investments. We can coach entrepreneurs before, during and after a crowdfunding campaign, that is where our added value lies. "
In2thecrowd helps established entrepreneurs in SMEs with expansion, investment or company takeover. Starting entrepreneurs can also appeal to the new platform. "We believe in the power of the crowd. In our view, the core of crowdfunding; to make something possible with many people, "says Ferdinand Zomerman of in2thecrowd.
