Product/Service Summary

We are a "Future Cities" Market place which brings the people closer to the community by providing them a channel to crowdfund Civic projects around their community. We also help the user to crowdfund legal fees to fight a cause if it is of public interest to bring about a real change.

How are we different?

Nobody in India is doing civic/ legal crowdfunding. We have thought through this 10 years down the line and our vision is value driven.

The competition is UK based Spacehive.com which does Civic crowdfunding and also Crowdjustice.co.uk which does legal crowdfunding.
