May, 18rd 2017: crowdfunding without borders

Hola! Our apologies, yesterday's newsletter was sent to you in spanish only, here goes the english version:

People who connect with other people supporting their ideas and projects, contribute to promote a social and solidarity economy. And crowdfunding is one of the tools that make it possible. In this sense matchfunding also creates the possibility for public and private, state or international institutions to redistribute grants and economic resources. This is the case of open call projects in the Goteo platform like:

Fem Educació, with € 40,000 to double the funding of educational innovation projects: the call is open until May, 23 .

Metal!, with € 70,000 matchfunding available to fund up to 20 projects and innovative cultural initiatives, promoted by agents based in Gipuzkoa. Call open until June 9.

Europeana. Strike a match for education, with € 10,000 has selected three cultural heritage projects with social and educational impact, in which you can contribute until June 25. And for every € you bring, Europeana gives another €.

Next Tuesday, May 23, we will talk about crowdfunding and business models and financing for startups in a Finance and Entrepreneurship workshop in the Circular Economy in Amsterdam.

If you want to contribute to expanding the social economy ecosystem you can do it by supporting some of the following projects. Do you want to contribute with this economic system? :)
