Crowdfunded funds are compatible with bank loans, European subsidies, SAFER portages, etc. Often, the funds raised are used to secure a traditional loan from the bank.
We can also seek additional funds to those raised through the crowd, through our network of individual wealthy investors.
For equity projects, your investors will not interfere in the day to day running of the company. The investor agreement we have drafted states that you will remain in complete control of your company.
For projects reimbursed in wine, your backers are loyal customers and are interested in your project and your estate, but they are not shareholders or bondholders.
You can also offer your wines to all the members of the vibrant WineFunding community, and you can build your brand by participating in our some of our events.
Depending on the size of your project, we can also contact wealthy investors from our network who are looking to invest more significant amounts.
Our president and founder, Maxime Debure, is an agriculture engineer, enologist and an MBA graduate from the prestigious INSEAD. He is helped by a team of professionals who are experts in wine and know how to run wine estates; this is how we can make sure we only choose the best estates for WineFunding.
This valuable know how means WineFunding can provide you with useful advice on strategy and business management, well beyond a regular crowdfunding platform who do not have the same level of expertise.
During the campaign, we want to create both virtual (social media) and real (tastings) exchanges between the community and the company.
After the crowdfunding campaign, we can help your company develop while maintaining the links created during the campaign between you and the WineFunding community.
For project reimbursed in wine, we have simplified the preparation of the orders and have negotiated special prices for shipping with our logistics partner.
WineFunders can sign essential documents on the platform by using our partner CertEurop which will be saved on a secure server all official records that have been signed. You can easily communicate with your community of investors or contributors thanks to the personal communication interface on the WineFunding site.
