Don’t let anyone tell you differently: Crowdfunding is a process. Those companies that navigate that process correctly are the ones who reap the rewards, and it doesn’t happen overnight! In this podcast, Ruben Figueredo, the COO from Vene Rides, takes you through the ups and downs he experienced en route to his active crowdfunding raise, from the first steps he took all the way through the process on what it takes to create a successful campaign, as well as his number one piece of advice all issuers should be aware of to move the entire process forward.
What does it take to create a successful crowdfunding campaign? Perhaps the first thing to do is to understand your market, your business, and who your customers are supposed to be and why. When you listen to this podcast, you’ll learn why and how Vene Rides is transforming cities in a tech-forward manner in order to change the way we currently think about transportation, both as retailer and a manufacturer with their micro-EV marketplace and sales/services of light electric vehicles. You’ll also understand why creating community is so important and necessary way before you even start your crowdfunding campaign!
So how long did the process take? Why use the “testing the waters” concept when crowdfunding your deal? What is Mr. Figueredo’s idea for a “10-minute city”? And why did he go with the crowdfunding concept with Regulation A crowdfunding to begin with? The answers to these questions and many more lessons learned are explained in detail on the podcast.
Vene Rides crowdfunding experience certainly didn’t happen overnight, but it seems like it was well worth the time, effort, and cost. See it for yourself as his deal is live right now on the Republic Crowdfunding portal at republic.co/vene
