Hi! Sandip (the founder) here!
Want to know how and why GoGetFunding started? I’d love to fill you in…
In December 2011 I saw crowdfunding gaining traction. It was awesome seeing creative campaigns come to life but it wasn’t so cool that personal causes and projects weren’t allowed on the most popular platforms. And I thought the sites that did allow personal fundraising could do a better job, so heck, why not create something better?
I wanted to create a platform that made it exciting and rewarding to start and be part of a campaign. To really capture the crowdfunding buzz and democratize it all – that’s what crowdfunding is all about at the end of the day. I envisioned complete crowdfunding freedom and flexibility.
That’s when GoGetFunding was born!
With a low budget but high ambitions, I launched the site, and then spent all day and much of the night letting people know how what we could do for them. With a little luck and a lot of hard work, we started gaining traction. Within the first 3 months campaigns on GoGetFunding had raised over $20,000!! The feeling was incredible. People were actually using the site to do good, change lives and make an impact! Fast forward a few months and people were now raising $20,000 in a day or two. GoGetFunding was catching on.
In 2012 GoGetFunding continued to grow but the website struggled to keep up. There were countless sleepless nights, and my nerves were almost always on edge. My phone was on loud day and night as I prepared to jump into action if I saw website performance being affected.
I put together a great team and then reinvested all the money I had into GoGetFunding. After almost 5 months of intense web development and design, version 2 of the site was launched. I could finally sleep easy and most important of all, we could offer fundraisers and donors the best service.
Since the early days, GoGetFunding has seen hundreds of improvements and iterations and we continue to enhance the website and fundraising experience every single day. From humble beginnings, GoGetFunding has now enjoyed millions of visitors, donations and helped thousands of campaigns reach or exceed their target.
I hope you become part of the GoGetFunding journey!
