Kickfurther is the world's first inventory crowdfunding platform. On Kickfurther, anyone can support the growth of brands and products they love by purchasing inventory. We have the inventory produced and shipped to the brand and, when that inventory sells, the community is repaid, with profit.
Every business that sells products is faced with the same problem, they need to pay for their products long before they have the opportunity to sell them. This is even worse if they're selling to a major retailer and have to wait 30, 60, or even 90 days to get paid after they deliver the inventory.
Now their fans and community can buy into their inventory and get it on the shelves. When that inventory sells, the businesses pay their fans profit.
Businesses have to pay financing costs anyway. With Kickfurther, they can leverage those costs to build brand affinity, attract new customers, and earn social promotion.
Users love supporting businesses and products they believe in. Above and beyond the financial benefits, our community likes to be in direct contact with up and coming business owners and feels like they have a hand in each brand's success. Everyone wishes they could be a shark on Shark Tank and Kickfurther gives them a taste of that experience.
