SproutBack

Sproutback is an Australian based crowdfunding platform that aims to help people show off their creative projects to the world, as well as to help people find amazing projects to support.

Sproutback allows people to get funding for their innovative technological projects or art projects and get them off the ground. A community of ‘backers’ who donate funds towards a project receive ‘reward’ from the project’s creator. It also indicates whether the idea of the project is worth development.

The website is not only about community financial funding but it also supports the project on every step of the way. Sproutback provides creators with necessary contacts and mentor networks, with guidance and expert advice.

To start a project a user only needs to sign up or login to Sproutback and click the ‘Start’ button. After posting the information about the project, a user has to set a funding goal and a timeframe for reaching the target. Sproutback works under the principle of ‘all-or-nothing’ funding, which means that projects only receive their funding if they’ve reached the set target.

Backers can easily support any project they like with any kind of currencies. To browse through all the projects you should click the ‘Explore’ button in the menu.  Projects can be filtered by category, popularity, time remaining, etc. For staying informed of the new projects one can sign up the site’s newsletter.
