Crowdfund Angus is about providing a service in the shape of the crowdfunding portal for individuals, communities and businesses to lever in the funding they require to carry out their activity/plan/project.
Through this process they can apply for any activity and it is decided by the ‘Crowd’. This process also gives their plan validation through being successfully funded which can unlock traditional funding methods.
