Lendahand wins Crowd Power Award 2016
At the European Crowdfunding Day 2016, Lendahand was awarded the Crowd Power Award for our own crowdfunding campaign on the Symbid platform. The largest sum was crowdfunded by our own crowd , for which we have received this award.
At the European Crowdfunding Day 2016, our founder Peter Heijen has received the crowd power award on behalf of the whole Lendahand team. The award was handed out by Gijsbert Koren, co-founder of crowdfunding consultancy agency Douw & Koren. This specific award is given out to the campaign on a Dutch crowdfunding platform which has generated the largest engagement of the crowd.
Lendahand has been granted this award for our own crowdfunding campaign at the Symbid platform which was live during September 2015. The campaign resulted in a total amount of 400.000 euro of which the largest sum was funded by the crowd of our Lendahand platform.
We are very thankful that the love and trust of our own crowd had resulted in a very succesful campaign, which in the end has resulted in us receiving this award. A big thanks to our crowd!
I find new forms of development aid very interesting. Especially the rise of financially independent companies like Lendahand which put social impact first. I strongly believe in the self-relience of people by providing fair loans.
