Get ready to get funded

Want to finance your project with crowdfunding?
You'll learn anything you need with us.

We are an official Indiegogo partner since 2015.

Education

We teach teams how to plan and launch their campaigns. From the project idea and financing plan until design, video pitch and communication plan - we have it all covered.

Support

Before and after launching the campaign teams receive mentorship who worked on some inventive and successful campaigns.

Promotion

We promote crowdfunding worldwide. Crowdfunding Conventions in Zagreb and elsewhere attract the most important names from the crowdfunding scene. We actively inform non-profits and companies on the possibilities of crowdfunding.

We employ a hands-on approach

About us

Crowdfunding is still underused possibility for people with great ideas. Nonprofits, companies and individuals can use crowdfunding to innovate and create new projects that will make the world a better place. That is the reason why social impact agency BRODOTO and United Nations Development Program in Croatia started Crowdfunding Academy. This educational program serves everyone who has a great idea, but lacks knowledge how to use crowdfunding to make it a reality.

So far

Over the course of two years Crowdfunding Academy has: 

- trained more than 60 teams 
- helped raising hundreds of thousands of dollars
- trained teams in Istanbul, Zagreb, Kyiv... 
- created interest for crowdfunding in undeveloped markets of SEE
- organised two international conferences

In the following years we are planning to spread our education and promotion into several other countries. Let us know if you wish to cooperate!
