SellAnApp Raises €150K through Crowdfunding Platform Symbid

SellAnApp, an Amsterdam, the Netherlands-based start up that is developing an integrated online platform where users can transform their app ideas into an app design using crowdsourcing, has raised €150k (approximately USD$180K) through the crowdfunding platform Symbid.

260 crowdinvestors acquired a 5% stake in the company.

SellAnApp is using the funds to continue to develop and launch its platform.

Founded by Aernoud Dekker and Milan van den Bovenkamp, SellAnApp intends to offer an alternative to individuals and companies for hiring development companies directly or become a developer themselves, by providing online tools to design, develop, test and publish mobile apps, as well as promoting and marketing them using a partner network.
Revenue as a result of the exploitation of the app will be shared between the owner of the initial idea (the producer), fund providers (the investors) – and, optionally, the developers who contributed to the design (the wizards).

  • Great success of fundraising via the crowd.
    By the way, a new crowdfunding platform is appearing in Europe and will also focus on helping startups or ventures in growth to raise funds.
    This new crowdfunding platform will be fully operational in few months but great projects are already posted on it.
