A little bit about Crowdfund Canada


The UK's biggest crowdfunding platform has arrived in Canada, and we're on a mission

We've made the move into Canada, bringing our team of industry experts and famous 'Accelerator' programme across the Atlantic Ocean for the first time.

We'll be launching a localised new platform later this month together with a new competition to find brilliant projects making an impact in Vancouver.

We've enjoyed a period of rapid growth in the past 18 months, raising more $130 million for tens of thousands start-ups, social enterprises and community groups.

We also saw its one millionth supporter to pledge money to a project in November 2019.

Now we want to bring a little bit of that crowdfunding magic to Canada.

Our move into Canada marks a milestone moment for the Crowdfunder group as we introduce our world-class product to new audiences.
