"We realize that creatives, startups, and SME’s have nowhere to turn for small amounts of capital outside of their family and friends. We are going to teach those groups how to effectively build a business plan and execute an impactful crowdfunding campaign so that they can raise up to $1 million a year using alternative capital formation strategies”, explains coPhilly and CrowdCampuses Founder, Kevin Provost.


What is coPhilly?

coPhilly is the first global attempt to provide hundreds of startups, creatives, businesses, and community groups with low-cost alternative strategies to help raise capital and scale their businesses using a hyper-local crowdfunding and crowdsourcing methodology.

“It’s great to see Philadelphia creative and business leaders coming together with vested interest in creating a more collaborative local marketplace. With the help from local universities and college students, we envision bridging the funding gap that exists for most early stage businesses and creative professionals here in Philadelphia. It's our job collectively to get information about coPhilly in the hands of local artists, musicians, entrepreneurs, and business owners whose passion projects and startup ventures depend on getting financed” said Provost.
