The Crowdfunding Compass and the Community Finance Canvas are designed by me, Annelies Lesuis. I have a background in psychology and law, and in my free time I like to travel, read and design. The crowdfunding method as a business tool has arisen because I saw that the playful component of crowdfunding helps people not only to think out of the box, but also leads to faster results. Through setting up a crowdfunding campaign you learn a lot about entrepreneurship in a very short time. The continuous interaction with people and the environment leads to unexpected results!
Where do I get my inspiration from?
I get energy when I see a twinkling in someone’s eyes when a project is growing. Or when a solution has been created for something that was not held as possible. And then things get up and running. I believe in possibilities. It is powerful entrepreneurship if you know how to be flexible and persistent at the same time. I really admire that. When I’ve been able to get people in the right direction, I’m really glad I got the chance to see those processes happen.
