Financing and pulling off an ambitious project, whether personal or professional, with one’s own funds, or through traditional sources like banks, is an immense challenge. KissKissBankBank is a funding platform that enables anyone with an artistic, creative, innovative, bold, humanistic, scientific, sports, or green project to:
- Raise funding from their network and the community for their project
- Keep 100% ownership and control over their project
- Connect with people who fund their project
Additionally, the platform allows project creators to pre-sell their products to fund their projects, or gather funds to promote them.
Thanks to the 1080€ I managed to raise on KissKissBankBank, I was able to finance my trek to Nepal.

Crowd-funding is the act of individuals coming together to support and fund projects (that usually face difficulties to access traditional financing, such as banks, business angels, and investors) by other people.
The concept of crowd-funding isn’t new, but it took the Internet to truly revolutionize it. Given the crisis context the global economy is currently struggling with, crowd-funding is an interesting tool for project owners, in view of traditional financers freezing their credits. It holds an enormous potential as a new model for raising capital.
