Imagine you have an outstanding idea for a new business or you want to expand your already existing company with new assets and concepts, but you don’t have the financial resources to do so. Most banks aren’t easily persuaded into giving loans and finding a good investor is kind of a hard job. In that case you can turn to crowd funding; a platform where you can display your entrepreneurial proposal and the actual crowd can invest an amount of their choice to your cause. De Amersfoortse, an insurance company especially for entrepreneurs, believes in the initiatives of young entrepreneurs and that’s exactly why they created their own crowd funding platform: Doorgaan.nl. They insist that these wonderful new plans don’t end up in the garbage bin, but find their way into the world and it felt as their duty to present a reliable way to do that.
