Salone Crowdfunder is an innovative online crowdfunding platform specifically designed for Sierra Leonean innovators and entrepreneurs. Our platform provides a dynamic space for individuals to raise funds, enabling them to kick-start, manage, and grow their business ventures. Our overarching goal is to enhance financial accessibility for startups in Sierra Leone, facilitating their growth through the power of crowdfunding.
At Salone Crowdfunder, we operate with a ‘Flexible Funding’ donation-based model. This allows campaigners to keep all the funds they raise, even if they don’t hit their target goal. This model is especially supportive for Sierra Leonean entrepreneurs, offering flexibility and a supportive fundraising environment.
Donation-based crowdfunding is a straightforward and community-focused funding model. Donors contribute funds without the expectation of financial returns or rewards, emphasizing the spirit of community support and philanthropy.
The Salone Crowdfunding Platform is committed to supporting a diverse range of campaigners who are passionate about making a positive impact in Sierra Leone. To ensure that our platform remains inclusive and effective, we have established the following eligibility criteria for campaigners:
Applicants must be at least 18 years old. This ensures that all our campaigners are legally able to enter into agreements and manage funds responsibly.
Our platform is open to individuals of all gender identities, embracing diversity and promoting equal opportunities for everyone.
We welcome a variety of projects including innovative concepts or ideas, startups that have developed a Minimum Viable Product (MVP), and grassroots organizations. This diversity ensures a rich mix of creativity and practical solutions.
Projects should aim to create a tangible social impact. We prioritize initiatives that contribute positively to the community and have the potential to bring about meaningful change.
The business or idea must be based in Sierra Leone. This focus ensures that the benefits of crowdfunding are directed towards local development and empowerment.
Campaigns seeking funds over 7 Million Leones must have a bank account. This requirement is to ensure proper financial handling and accountability for larger-scale projects.
If you have an idea or a project with a social impact, don’t let a lack of funds hold you back. Apply as a campaigner, share your vision, and start your journey towards making it a reality.
