Acorn Collective 2018-04-28 – 2018-05-28
We’re helping fulfil crowdfunding’s promise of being a democratic, accessible way for small businesses to get funding. Current platforms are equity-backed, so they focus on projects that give them the best return – with high barriers to entry and often policies that all but shut out developing countries. We want to crowdfund crowdfunding. Our early backers are token holders, not equity holders, so they want an expansive platform that values a community project in Kenya as much as it does a tech project in California. The Acorn platform will be completely free to use in any country and for any legal purpose. With crowdfunding overtaking VC’s as the most popular way to get funded, and with a growing appetite for entrepreneurship in developing economies, there is a huge and proven market. Our team includes the ex-CTO of crowdcube, the worlds largest equity crowdfunding platform, along with Ian Scarffe, Desmond Marshall and an experienced commercial team. We’ll partner with successful accelerators globally to make free reward crowdfunding a reality. Please refer to the website for more the technical whitepaper.
About Acorn Collective
Changing the Face of Crowdfunding
Acorn is building a blockchain based crowdfunding platform that’s the first to be free and open to any legal project in any country.
- Free Crowdfunding
ERC-20 token means tiny transaction fees (other platforms: typically 3-5%). ICO proceeds fund our Revenue Generation Mechanisms so we don’t need to charge any platform fees for crowdfunding (other platforms: typically 5%).
- All Legal Projects
We’ll allow legal and non-harmful projects, irregardless of category to crowdfund for free. Acorn works as well for community projects as it does for huge consumer products. We don’t shut you out because you’re a local business.
- Any Country
Crowdfunding is an outstanding success in developed countries. Emerging markets are all but shut out. We’re interested in an expansive ecosystem, so we’ll allow all non-sanctioned countries.
- Attractive Tokenomics
Fixed supply token, used for all transactions in our crowdfunding hub, our post-campaign marketplace, our support services and our point-of-sales payment app. Real utility means real demand.
- Early Incentives
We want to reward and encourage early adopters. A Project Incentive Fund provides generous incentives for people to use our platform. Our affiliate rewards provides commissions for successful recruitment of additional users.
- Validated Interest
We have a growing list of interested projects waiting to be listed. Accelerators and incubators in developed and emerging markets are partnering with us to provide crowdfunding to ventures and entrepreneurs in their networks.
