  • Reward-based crowdfunding and the newly introduced equity-based models can be combined in a very effective crowdfinance capitalization strategy to leverage the benefits of a rewards campaign as a first capitalization step, building economic and brand value in the venture without sacrificing ownership interests, before adding new stakeholders with equity and debt. ProHatch calls this a new “capital ladder” that helps to take companies from ideation to exit. Deploying a reward campaign today gives entrepreneurs/startups/small businesses particularly consumer goods early market validation, good or bad with no loss of ownership. This is an ideal opportunity to build revenue, customers, credibility & brand, reducing risk in preparation of further traditional or crowdfinance equity & debt rounds. There have already been companies on other CFPs that have closed traditional rounds following a successful reward campaign. For example Ouya, a new open sourced gaming console powered by Android, funded a $8.6M rewards campaign with more than 60K preordered units. 9 months later, Kleiner Perkins led an additional $15M round which marked one of the largest institutional investments to go to a reward-based crowdfunding campaign to date. With other notable examples available, ProHatch believes donation & reward crowdfunding models will play just as important a role in strategic capital formation, and that belief has shaped our direction and the evolution of our platform. In offering every type of crowdfunding on ProHatch, we believe that companies will strategically choose the models that make sense for them.
