Basic Questions

Who is responsible for completing a project as promised?

It’s the project creator’s responsibility to complete their project. CrowdInvesta is not involved in the development of the projects themselves.

CrowdInvestadoes not guarantee projects or investigate a creator’s ability to complete their project. On CrowdInvesta, backers (you!) ultimately decide the validity and worthiness of a project by whether they decide to fund it.

How do I know a project creator is who they claim they are?

Maybe they have a first-person video. That would be hard to fake. “Is it really U2?!” Well, it is if Bono’s talking about the project.

Still not sure? Look for the creator bio section on the project page. Do they provide links for further verification? The web is an invaluable resource for learning more about a person.

At the end of the day, use your internet street smarts.

Getting involved
How do I start a project?

Anyone that meets our creator requirements is eligible to launch a project on CrowdInvesta.

Just click the green “Start a project” button on the start page to begin building your project. You can find tips on structuring and running your project in our CrowdInvesta School, and refer to the CrowdInvesta Guidelines to make sure your project idea is a good fit. Meanwhile, feel free to save your project as a draft and return to finish it up or submit it for review at a later date.

Creator Questions

Getting started
Can CrowdInvesta be used to fund anything?

We allow creative projects in the worlds of Art, Comics, Dance, Design, Fashion, Film, Food, Games, Music, Photography, Publishing, Technology, and Theater.

Everything on CrowdInvesta must also be a project. A project has a clear goal, like making an album, a book, or a work of art. A project will eventually be completed, and something will be produced by it.

CrowdInvesta does not allow charity, cause, or “fund my life” projects. Check out our project guidelines for details.

Our staff does a quick review of projects before they launch to ensure they fit this criteria.

Backer Questions

Backing a project
How do I pledge?

To pledge to a project, just click the green “Support Now” button on any project page. You will be asked to select a reward tier. You will check out through CrowdInvesta.

Getting rewards
How will project creators get my info to deliver rewards?

Project creators will send an email survey to request any information they need to deliver you and your fellow backers’ rewards. Survey questions may include shipping address, size, color or other project-specific preferences.
