What is YoungFundr?
YoungFundr is a reward based crowdfunding platform designed for young people to raise finance for their business and projects. The site provides a platform for young people to connect with contributors to help raise the target amount all in one space.
Remove barriers and create opportunity for young people. We truly believe that there is so much potential for young people to bring their ideas into the real world and we want to help! With YoungFundr we will create an online space showcasing young people and their creativity through their projects.
YoungFundr was set up, because our founder Rayyan Petkar is a young entrepreneur and has been since an early teen. He understands the difficulties of having awesome ideas, but being restricted due to lack of finance. He is also aware of the fact that it can be quite difficult for young people to raise finance from the regular finance outlets, therefore wanted to provide a solution.
The founder Rayyan Petkar being only 20 years old has gained recognition from his entrepreneurial activities and has been nominated for entrepreneurship awards and wants to show people that age should not stop entrepreneurialism. He said “entrepreneurialism is a fantastic opportunity to conceptualise your ideas and thoughts into something tangible, and a lack of finance should not be something that restricts young people from creating their brilliant ideas. We aim for YoungFundr to help young people by removing barriers and create opportunity for them.”
