Co-operative Crowdfunding Monitor
We're keen to help promote and support fundraising campaigns being run by co-ops. Because co-operatives use various different platforms for their crowdfunding projects around the world, there's no single source where you can see all of the information in one place. So we thought we'd have a go at trying to provide a list, to improve visibility and hopefully make it a bit easier for people and organisations who want to invest in co-operative projects to find them.
This list is almost certainly not exhaustive, so we are keen to hear from you if you know of an upcoming or live co-op crowdfunding campaign, please let us know by using this form or sending us a tweet.
We'll also be tweeting about the campaigns listed here through the Co-op Crowdfunding Alerts Twitter account.
