Would you like to start a crowdfunding campaign to launch a new B2C product? We kindly invite you to send us an application to firstname.lastname@example.org with besides your contact information:
Oneplanetcrowd receives many applications of entrepreneurs who are enthusiastic to start a campaign at our platform. To guarantee the quality of our service and to provide proper guidance to the entrepreneurs going live, Oneplanetcrowd makes a selection out of the received applications on a weekly basis. This selection is based to which extent the applications meet to the criteria of Oneplanetcrowd.
Oneplanetcrowd offers four different types of crowdfunding in the Netherlands.
In the rewards model the investor pays a sum of money to an enterprise, who uses it to develop the first version of a new product or service. As a reward, the investor will receive this product or this service at a lower price than the eventual retail price, or with additional attractive extras, in exchange for the fact that the investor often has to wait a bit longer for delivery.
For non-profit organisations we provide the option of raising donations. In the case of donations the reward is usually a token of acknowledgement or an experience of the project made possible by the investor, for instance a video showing the outcome of the project.
For entrepreneurs with existing turnover and financial securities there is the option of obtaining loans from our investors.
For companies with high growth potential but limited financial securities, which need higher amounts of funding (from €100,000) to be able to scale up, there is the option of obtaining subordinated convertible loans. This funding instrument gives the crowd the option of becoming co-owner of your enterprise through subsequent conversion of the loan into non-voting share certificates. The advantage of this structure is that you have the involvement of an active, generally commercially engaged group of shareholders, without them having a say in business operations. Economic gains will of course be proportionally shared with the investors.
Entrepreneurs can also attract international attention for their projects via Oneplanetcrowd. At this time, we offer the option of campaigning in multiple languages (Dutch, English and German). We also have a team in Germany who can help you run your campaign.
It is possible to start a worldwide donation or rewards campaign. The present rules and regulations regarding raising money internationally by means of a (convertible) loan however continue to change frequently, and the rules and regulations differ greatly per country. If you’d like to know more about the possibilities and impossibilities of raising funds internationally by means of loans or convertible loans, please get in touch via email@example.com.
If a minimum of 20% of the target amount is raised after two weeks, the project page will be made visible on the website of Oneplanetcrowd. Now everyone can invest.
The incrowd module can also be used in order to target an existing group of investors, for example an informal investors society. They can sign up for an (follow up) investment. The incrowd module takes care of the transactions, both legally and financially. The entrepreneur is no longer required to negotiate with all individual investors and handle the contracts. This saves time and effort.
Oneplanetcrowd is aimed at enterprises and projects with a green or socially responsible character. You can also sign up if you are a well-established entrepreneur wishing to introduce a new product or service to the market or to crowd-fund a specific project.
Once your project has been approved and you are satisfied that we can help you achieve your funding goal, we charge the following costs:
If the funding goal is not reached, Oneplanetcrowd will cover the transaction costs and you will only pay the publishing fee. This means that Oneplanetcrowd and entrepreneur share the commercial risk involved in reaching your funding goal.
