Sometimes a bit of help is needed to make great ideas take off. Coop Crowdfunding is joining Bite Copenhagen and on their innovative platform, producers can fuel their ideas for the journey. 

 

Is your company planning on laying out a field of organic apples for cider production, or do you need a new gizmo for your production? Or perhaps you are looking for some interesting food and drink projects to invest in? If the answer is yes, then Coop Crowdfunding (https://crowdfunding.coop.dk/) may be the chance you have been looking for. On this unique platform, producers can pitch their ideas and everyone can contribute to funding the projects.

Together towards better food solutions
 

Anyone can contribute to the projects on the crowdfunding platform and contributors are rewarded by doing so. The model aligns perfectly with Coop’s visions, according to Coop Crowdfunding Responsible, Nicolai Jæpelt:

 

“Working together towards better solutions is part of the foundation that Coop is built on. Coop Crowdfunding brings producers and consumers closer to each other and engages consumers more in their food sources. People’s contributions, regardless how small or large they may be, give producers the capability of competing on quality rather than price, which ultimately brings better food on the shelves and better food on our plates.”

 

A well-proven concept with mutual benefits
 

The crowdfunding platform has already proven its potential although until recently, it has only been in the test phase. Many projects have already been funded and investors are making money or getting rewards for their contribution. Companies doing a crowdfunding campaign benefit from more than just funds, Nicolai Jæpelt explains:

“Developing new products is expensive, but on our platform producers get the chance to market test their project on real people while it’s still just an idea. So you get valuable information without investing a lot of money. In addition, investors will act as highly committed ambassadors for your brand onwards.”

“We welcome all sorts of projects that can make a difference in the food industry. We are looking forward to attending Bite Copenhagen 2018 and show and tell visitors and exhibitors more about the potential of Coop Crowdfunding,” says Nicolai Jæpelt.
