Over the past few years, crowdfunding has become an invaluable ally for millions of financially challenged entrepreneurs with awesome, creative start-up ideas. At the same time, the benefits of this modern, secure, convenient financing method have also been experienced by people and organizations that joined forces to support social causes. At this point, there are approximately 530 crowdfunding platforms that encourage the progress of numerous individuals, driven by powerful personal ambitions or by philanthropic goals.
The good news is that there is no limited amount of “gold” out there and that every good cause has high odds of attracting generous backers, as long as it counts on an excellent presentation and inexpensive marketing strategies. In this context, it shouldn’t surprise us that new crowdfunding environments seem to appear overnight.
KitaBisa is the newest fundraising platform, created and implemented to lend a helping hand to struggling communities, solve a wide range of pressing social problems and enable do-gooders to get involved in charitable causes the easy way.
KitaBisa stimulates people to make a financial contribution to reshape the future of those in need. Its developers are graduates from the University of Indonesia, who are fully aware of the fact that all creative projects, regardless of their feasibility, quality, originality and expected benefits are threatened by three major factors:
- Lack of funds
- Lack of guidance
- Lack of exposure
M. Alfaith Timur, KitaBisa’s co-founder, knows that even the best ideas, which could improve the lives of millions of people, without involving colossal expenses, could be easily killed by the absence of good promotion strategies, funding and a skilled mentor. This is the main reason why he decided to launch KitaBisa, along with a few colleagues. Encouraged by the plentitude of sponsors who seem eager to get involved in social projects, Timur gave the green light to KitaBisa, an innovative crowdfunding website that displays a few ingenious features and conditions.
Users have to set a campaign deadline and a target. Apart from that, they also have to set out a “pessimistic budget”. Those who manage to surpass their pessimistic budget get to keep the raised amount of money; those who fail come up empty handed. At this point, KitaBisa takes pride in 8 ongoing and finalized projects.
This may not sound like a lot, compared to the number of projects rolled out by gigantic crowdfunding platforms like Kickstarter or Indiegogo, but on a national scale, KitaBisa is already considered a competitive fundraising environment. Bursalde and patungan.net are two other important websites elaborated by Indonesian developers, designed to lend a helping hand to creative minds seeking financial aid. The latter one was tested by the members of Navicula, a rock band. They managed to fund their tour in the Kalimantan jungles via crowdfunding and raise awareness about the impact of massive deforestation on the environment. The eco-conscious musicians rolled out 2 successful campaigns (one on Kickstarter and one on patungan.net), highlighting that good causes and brilliant ideas aren’t always killed by lack of funds. KitaBisa, the latest platform of this kind is expected to help Indonesian entrepreneurs put their talent on full display and make a name for themselves faster than ever before.
