You Should Try This Crowdfunding Platform For Muslims If You Need Financial Support For A Venture Or A Cause

Crowdfunding can simply be described as online and offline community giving, community (financial) support, community donations etc. The process of requesting for financial donations for an entrepreneurial project or a cause from people within your circle of influence or community (familial, religious, educational, professional, geographical et al) has been automated through online platforms like Kickstarter, Indiegogo, Gofundme and the like but at this time, there is only one crowdfunding platform for Muslims and by Muslims and that is Launchgood.

Islam is a religion that is also a complete way of life and that way of life can be described as a counterculture in relation to the main culture in the global society hence the need for a crowdfunding platform to support entrepreneurs and or creatives with businesses targeted at the lifestyle needs of this large but niche Muslim community. 

There are approximately 2 billion people in the world who identify as Muslim, imagine if every Muslim in the world is connected to a platform that gives them the opportunity and option to financially back an entrepreneurial project or cause for the Muslim community. We believe this vision can very easily become reality considering the fact that as of the fourth quarter of 2017, the online social networking platform, Facebook had 2.2 billion monthly active users.

Read Launchgood's description of its mission and vision below:

"There are nearly 2 billion Muslims in the world - as in 2 million people a thousand times over. That's a lot of people!

Yet if you look at the most popular businesses, movies, books, etc., how many come from Muslims? Sadly few to none.

Is it possible that Muslims just aren't capable of being creative & entrepreneurial? Our history as the founders of algebra, chemistry, coffee, shampoo and much more plainly reject that idea.

LaunchGood was started as a community and ecosystem to revive that spirit of creativity and entrepreneurism that elevated Muslims globally for centuries.

It is a place to support great ideas in the community and also challenge ourselves to think bigger. It is a network that insists the ummah is still alive in our hearts, that we are connected no matter where we are. It is our showroom to the world of all the great things Muslims are capable of.

Could a Muslim write the next Harry Potter novel, create the next Lord of the Rings trilogy, or discover the next great vaccine? We firmly believe so, that's why we're here.

We invite you to be part of our global community to launch great campaigns, both as a supporter and as a campaign creator. Together, we can change our communities, our countries and the world - one campaign at a time!"

According to Launchgood, thus far $35, 284, 355 is the total amount of donations made to the 3,190 campaigns launched through the platform but that figure would most probably change upwards soon.
