What is Crowdfunding Berlin?
Crowdfunding Berlin is the information site for Crowdfunding in Berlin. We are not a funding platform. We showcase projects from the areas of art, culture, cultural education, media, ICT and the creative industries, which are currently using a crowdfunding platform to fund their ideas. Our website also assembles key information and FAQs on topics such as crowd finance and latest market developments. We also have a list of crowdfunding consultants and networks on hand as well as important events and conferences on crowdfunding. Our magazine section lends a voice to projects and creators and discusses the latest crowdfunding trends.
As of April 2016 we offer crowdfunding consultations. They aim at giving an overview of the opportunities that crowd financing affords. Our crowdfunding consultation is not a campaign consultation. For appointments contact our team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Who exactly is involved in creating and managing the Crowdfunding Berlin website?
Crowdfunding Berlin is a project by Kulturprojekte Berlin GmbH and part of Kreativ Kultur Berlin, Berlin’s Beratungszentrum für Kulturförderung und Kreativwirtschaft. Kreativ Kultur Berlin is funded by the European Regional Development Fund (EFRE) for a period of three and a half years (2016–2019). Crowdfunding Berlin is a joint project organised by the Senate Department for Economics, Technology and Research (Projekt Zukunft) in cooperation with Creative City Berlin and Kubinaut – Navigation Kulturelle Bildung.

Why was this website covering Berlin-based projects created in the first place?
Crowdfunding Berlin is eager to provide an overview of Berlin-based crowdfunding and crowdinvesting projects and to generate more attention for Berlin-based projects so that we can help everybody involved achieve their targeted financial goals as quickly and effectively as possible.
Crowdfunding Berlin is a state-funded initiative that is in no way in competition with existing private crowdfunding or crowdinvesting platforms. Our goal is to provide additional benefits for all involved.
Crowdfunding Berlin is a pilot project of the State of Berlin. The website gives the state an opportunity to get an overview of Berlin-based projects on crowdfunding and crowdinvesting platforms, but also to set up theme-related competitions and support good projects beyond financing from the crowd.
