Polish expert and her crowdfunding campaign
We're glad to notice, that crowdfunding becomes more and more popular form of getting funds, around the world. Now, I'd like to share with you information that also our Polishexpert in the subject of crowdfunding - Aga Ploska - is running her own campaign. It has started n 31 March 2020.
What isshe collecting money for?
The answer is simple - she wants to publish her own book about crowdfunding. The book is going to be titled "The woman from the crowd" and its publication is planned for 1 June2020.
She writes about her project:
"I often browse current crowdfunding campaigns - Polish and foreign. I noticed that there are many of us, women, where the help is needed. We are practically not available in places where business comes to the fore. I reviewed the largest awards-based crowdfunding platforms in Poland and found that out of 140 projects that raised over PLN 50,000, only 13 projects were fully run by women. 13 projects. This is just 9%!
Of course, we appear in teams (as graphic designers, accountants, sometimes marketing or communication specialists), but we are almost not at the top.
I want to change it. I want to balance these proportions. I want us women to be more where there is money!"
She offers really nice prizes for donatorsand she planned to collect 13000 PLN.1 is seen as a star-crossed number, but I am pretty sure it won't be like that this time.
Fingers crossed and I hope that I'll be able to readt that book soon :)
