Getting started

Now is the time to think about how your business idea will form a crowdfunding page. Think about how will you tell your story?

Start with mapping out your network of people who are most likely to support your startup business. Decide how much you need to raise and what tempting rewards you could offer. Take a look around the Crowdfunder site and look for your own inspiration as well.

Sarah had a vision to start a sauna business, and thanks to Crowdfunder’s amazing community she was able to see that dream become a reality with her business, the Seaside Sauna Haus. In February 2020, 128 supporters helped raise over £9.5k for Sarah’s startup.

Since then it’s become a mainstay in the small town of Seatown in Dorset, UK. Nestled right on the ruggedly beautiful Seatown beach next to a local pub, Sarah hosts regular sauna club sessions and private bookings, and firmly believes in the healing affects of making sauna a part of your life.
