New Crowdfunding App for Startups Launches in South Africa
In one hand, you have your business funding application being rejected for various reasons and on the other, a South African who wonders how they can contribute to the entrepreneurial ecosystem even though they too don’t have access to a million.
Ubuntu startup fund is a crowdfunding mobile app developed to inspire the entrepreneurial spirit in South Africans by allowing them access to cheer leaders who not only believes but willing to finically back your ideas to make them real. Ubuntu, currently downloadable on Apple’s AppStore, android‘s PlayStore and the Huawei’s AppGallery.
Ubuntu is for anyone willing to assist aspiring entrepreneurs with ideas that need funding or assisting someone start a business.
When we envisioned Ubuntu we wanted to create a community were entrepreneurs can showcase their ideas, raise funds, or make collaborative partnerships as well as have access to a massive idea pool. Instead of putting a price on the download we ask for a minimum contribution of R 50.00 towards any project of your choice on the system. You may do this more than once but even if you only ever fund one project, you would be offering someone access to access to a world of possibilities
