Crowdsourcing kick off-party

The Campaign

Running a crowd sourcing campaign is new to me and everybody involved in Fjording. It required a lot of preparation up front, but mainly it’s been interesting kind of work. Much to learn and lots of new stuff to tackle. I enjoy it.

  On our way to the goal…

Now we’ll have three weeks of promoting the campaign before the end date. Which is October 15th.

The minimum amount we need to raise - in order to finalize the funding round - is 1,5 mil. NOK.

The Party

Something I have done before is throwing a party. And although party fixing always creates some stress, it’s normally worth it. I definitely have a grateful feeling after the Fjording campaign kick off-party at MESH this Friday evening.

We gathered team members, friends, neighbors, existing investors, “soon to be-investors” and other curios and cheerful people for a short, informal pitch, some nice tapas, bartenders serving Fjording, beers and other refreshments - and cool music from skillful DJ Andre Bravo.

The numbers from the Folkeinvest-campaign were shown at a big screen, and by the end of the night, almost 950.000 NOK had been raised by nearly 70 investors. A very promising start for our campaign!

I’d like to thank everybody involved in making this evening so joyful! Both to those joining the MESH-party and to those who signed up to be future Fjording-investors from your homes.

It’s so inspiring that you believe in the Fjording brand!

(Edited October 30th: The Funding round proved to be successful and we ended up with 2,75 mill. NOK. Yay!).
