Crowd2Fund becomes a CAPS authorised crowdfunding platform
25th July 2014
Crowd2Fund are delighted that their membership of The Crowdfunding Accreditation for Platform Standards (CAPS) has been accepted to ensure that best practice crowdfunding is adhered to on the platform. The programme is an initiative by Crowdsourcing.org to promote the adoption of best practices for the operation of crowdfunding platforms globally.
Designed to protect both crowdfunders (people pledging or investing capital) and fundraisers (people raising capital), the CAPS programme's mission is to foster the sustainable growth of the crowdfunding industry to provide much needed capital for projects and initiatives, start-ups and small businesses.
Supported by an advisory council of leading platform operators and industry experts, the accreditation criteria will be reviewed annually to ensure high standards for performance to continue to be set as the industry develops.
Accreditation is granted based on an interview and a review process. Platforms that do not meet the qualification criteria receive feedback, and upon implementation of the recommendations, are able to reapply.
