The Corona crisis has hit our industry with great force. Accommodation and catering businesses as well as cultural and leisure providers are fighting for survival. According to the Hotel and Restaurant Association, one third of the industry is threatened by insolvency. In addition to the state aid programmes, crowdfunding can be a way of counteracting financial bottlenecks - on a basis of solidarity - and safeguarding livelihoods without having to repay loans later. In cooperation with the Crowdfunding Campus, the only certified educational institution in Germany on the subject of crowdfunding, we offer support and advice in Germany subsidised by the Federal Office of Economics and Export Control.
Current information: The previous one hundred percent funding has unfortunately been stopped. Further information on the current funding guidelines can be found here.
Opportunities from Crowdfunding
An increasing number of affected people are already using crowdfunding and successful examples show that sums of up to €50,000 can be generated. Properly implemented, however, crowdfunding is not only an exciting financing option, but also functions as a market test, communication and sales tool. It can make an acute contribution to the stabilisation of your company and provide impetus for future growth.
Now is a good time!
The framework conditions for crowdfunding have never been more favourable, especially if you have a community that appreciates your offer and wants to keep it.
Because: the big crowdfunding platforms have lowered the hurdles to start a campaign and offer interesting possibilities for co-financing. In addition, people are currently showing broad-based solidarity with their "favourite places" such as hotels, cafés, restaurants, sports or cultural facilities.
