The Spark Project, a new crowdfunding platform in the Philippines, now lends its hand for marginalized innovators. Last February 16, 2013, The Spark Project was officially launched. With The Spark Project’s assistance, startups and innovators can begin their once stagnant ideas and start working on the wheels.
As a crowdfunding platform in the Philippines, The Spark Project goes beyond the online platform through building a Filipino startup culture. The goal of The Spark Project is to let everyone know that the Filipino people have great talent and ingenuity. To be able to reach that goal, The Spark Project gives every Filipino innovator the access to an online crowdfunding platform wherein they can hold campaigns to fund their unique projects.
The Spark Project sees the problem that every Filipino startup encounter – and that is funds. The Spark Project is all about the support and encouragement they can give to every aspiring startup with creative, innovative, and passion-driven projects. In many ways, The Spark Project’s platform can be utilized as a means of promoting the Filipino culture, launching new products, empowering the youth and others towards social change, gathering of like-minded advocates, and providing better education.
Patch Dulay, Founder of The Spark Project, came up with this great online crowdfunding platform because of the team’s own frustrations of making things happen. And now, Patch and his team make their frustrations turned into passion, as well as solutions. Patch also strongly believes that here in the Philippines, the Filipino people have great talent as startups and innovators, only waiting for their ideas to happen. So with The Spark Project, they can help make their ideas become a reality.
To begin with, create your own project with The Spark Project and start a funding campaign for your project. Those who are able to see your campaign might get interested to support your awesome idea and this can be your very big break. The Spark Project team will do their best to assist you in refining your project and tell you a go signal if it is really ready for crowdfunding.
In The Spark Project, you can also show your support among other projects, and hopefully, be rewarded with your support. The Spark Project is also a startup community wherein you can build your connections, and one way of increasing your network of connections is giving your support to others.
