The Good Start Promise 


Good Beginnings

With our Good Start Promise, we're taking the apprehension out of your first investment. Get a taste of how satisfying and empowering impact investing can be with reduced financial risk.


How It Works

Investing in crowdfunding projects on Lendahand is easy.

  1. Create an account: Sign up here 
  2. Choose: Browse through the impactful projects on our projects page and add the ones you want to invest into your basket.
  3. Invest: On the payment page, add the code GOODSTART to activate your 500 euro guarantee.



What’s Covered?

Your investment is now risk-free, up to 500 euros. Should any business you’ve invested in from your first order be unable to repay you, we’ve got your back. 

Here are two examples of how your investment is covered:

Example 1: Julia makes a first-time investment of EUR 1,000 in Project A. This means that Project A is guaranteed for EUR 500.

Example 2: Julia makes a first-time investment of EUR 1,000 in 2 projects, Project A and Project B. She invests EUR 600 in Project A and EUR 400 in Project B. This means that Project A is guaranteed for EUR 300 and project B for EUR 200.


This offer is only valid for first-time investors. The guarantee can be claimed after (1) Lendahand notifies the investor that the investment has been written off, OR (2) A payment is overdue by more than 365 days, and no subsequent payments have been received since that delay. For the terms and conditions of this first guarantee program, read here.
