How It Works

Project Ideation Phase:

The Project Ideation Phase is where all great projects and ideas are born. During this phase you should brainstorm your project with your inner circle. (Those that support you, see your vision and will be your earliest supporters.)  If you develop your project in the Project Ideation phase appropriately by creating early buy-in and awareness, you will be able to gauge if a project will be supported, or if you will need to go back to the drawing board and continue to build your project idea.

Project Realization Phase:

The Project Realization Phase is where dreams become realities.  Now that you have early buy-in and awareness of your project, you can prepare to launch your project’s campaign.

  • Submit your project form
  • Share widely through social media and word of mouth
  • Find other creative avenues to bring awareness to your project’s campaign

Project Legitimization Phase:

After you successfully close your campaign you enter the Project Legitimization where you receive your funds and deliver proof-of-project to your supporters. Do not undermine the importance of this phase as it is sets up success for future projects.
