Crowdfunding is a dialog-based mode of e.g. cultural production. The Startnext community consists of many people interested in this exchange precisely. And the Startnext team will stand by your side with fast advice and action. That's why I knew I'd start my project on Startnext.

Startnext was just the right place for my initiatives. A creative community and a pretty website that's easy to use. But the best part was the individual project advising. It was my first time crowdfunding and I always felt like the people behind Startnext were there to support me. Very caring, very amiable!
