Two Strijp S entrepreneurs initiated the creation of a new crowd-funding website: The Dutch Deal. This site was especially created for the benefit of entrepreneurs who cannot receive a bank loan at these hard times.
Via this website, entrepreneurs can present themselves and their plans. As a result, potential investors can follow the entrepreneurs’ endeavours and offer them financial support if they so desire. The investors will also receive some return on their investment eventually.
The website will be officially launched on 1 April, but is already on-line. Entrepreneurs can already put their plans on the website. The ten best and most popular plans win a crowd-funding workshop.
