Startnext Culture Flood Fund
Relief action number 3
It's summer 2021 pandemic or flood. One unexpected scenario follows the next, pulling the ground out from under the feet of the cultural and creative industries. Crowdfunding gives the possibility to help affected people quickly, without much paperwork, to get support.
Startnext as a rock in the sea
Startnext has so far already funded 2 pandemic relief campaigns from its own resources and created the following impact:
- 16.078.514 €
- 2.306 projects
- 248.281 supporters
- 590.000 € Cofunding
It turns out that in chaotic times for the cultural and creative industries, Startnext is a rock, a lobby, a mental safety net and ally. That's how it will remain.
Where does the money for the fund come from?
We follow the Startnext manifesto:
- Money rules the world, purpose will dethrone it
Money shall not be accumulated to a throne, but reinvested and distributed to foster people, projects, talent as well as the environment.
The project https://www.startnext.com/flutwein has raised almost €1 million in support for winemakers within a week.
The Crowd has also given voluntary support for the mission of Startnext. This money is reinvested in the Culture Flood Fund.
