“The Matrix is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.” — Morpheus The Big Idea Contrary to what you may believe, there is a proven formula for raising capital. It’s what the world’s best CEOs and expert fundraisers have been using for decades. And now with fundraising and investing moving online, this formula can be amplified, and exponentially more valuable to you. As we’ve shared this formula with founders raising on Crowdfunder, the data shows that those who follow this formula raise ten times the amount of investment as those who don’t. Founders who follow the formula on Crowdfunder attract $240,000 (founders who don’t raise only $24K). Founders who follow the formula close money 50% of the time from interested investors, whereas founders who don’t close less than 10% of the time.
