09 Nov, 2012
StartMe a crowd-funding platform for South African Entrepreneurs and Investors. Founded in 2011, StartMe is the next generation of business investment. It is a new way to fund entrepreneurs, artists, schools and community projects in South Africa by crowd-funding for equity or other incentives, giving those looking for funding a platform to connect with ordinary people and raise start-up finance.
By attracting lots of investors who invest smaller amounts of money into a person, company, product or idea you can bypass the traditional ways of raising venture finance. Founded by Ben Botes and Lourie Nel, StartMe has gone from strength to strength.
