桑坦德与众筹平台合作 实属英国首例

英国最大银行之一桑坦德银行与一众筹平台合作,创立“创变者基金”。这种新型合作尚属首次。

今日,桑坦德银行(Santander)与Crowdfunder联手成立了一个20万英镑的新基金,旨在为英国社会企业和社区项目提供融资支持。意在带来社会变化的社区项目可以在Crowdfunder.co.uk网站上呈现自己的项目计划,随后将可能从该基金获得最高1万英镑的配套资金。

英国所有帮助弱势群体的社会企业、小型慈善机构和社区团体都可以向该基金申请资金支持。只要得到大众支持并且以技能、知识和创新为主,合格的项目就能从桑坦德得到50%的需求资金,最高1万英镑。

两家公司表示此番合作是一项创举,不仅连接了传统金融和替代金融服务还为银行和众筹平台间的合作铺平了道路。Crowdfunder 总经理Phil Geraghty说:“桑坦德与Crowdfunder间的合作是众筹业一大里程碑——在银行业和下一代‘创变者’间开发了强大的关系网和大量机会。”

“我们的合作能够帮助人们实现他们的伟大想法,此外,通过扶持社会企业我们还将带来长期经济影响。”

桑坦德企业银行业务总经理Sue Douthwaite说:“我们的目标是为民众和企业的发展提供助力,而且我们认为社会企业和慈善机构对社区繁荣发挥了重要的作用。有了Crowdfunder的支持,我们20万英镑的‘创变者基金’将帮助人们实现自己的伟大想法并为社会企业和社区企业的发展提供支持。”

“创变者”是桑坦德标志性社区项目“探索计划(The Discovery Project)”的一部分,后者旨在通过技能、知识培养及创新扶持项目来激发人们对于未来的信心。

合格的项目还将得到这一众筹团队的专家支持,获得教育、创业和相关指导,(评估通过的)项目2017年可获得更多的资金。

For the first time, one of the UK’s largest banks is partnering with a crowdfunding platform in an innovative collaboration called Changemaker Fund.

Santander has teamed up with Crowdfunder to launch a £200,000 fund to support social enterprises and community projects across the UK.

Community projects looking to support social change can present their ideas on Crowdfunder.co.uk and unlock matched funding of up to £10,000 from Santander’s new fund.

The new fund is open to social enterprises, small charities and community groups helping disadvantaged people in the UK. Eligible projects seeking funds of up to £20,000 and focussed on skills, knowledge and innovation that get the crowd’s backing will receive 50% of their funding requirement from Santander.

The two firms say this is a revolutionary partnership that bridges the gap between traditional and alternative finance but also paves the way for closer relationships between banks and the crowdfunding sector.

Phil Geraghty, MD of Crowdfunder, said: “The new partnership between Crowdfunder and Santander is a key milestone for the crowdfunding industry – opening up powerful networks and opportunities between the banking sector and the next generation of ’changemakers’.

“It also offers long term economic impacts by supporting social enterprises alongside the immediate benefits of helping people make their great ideas happen.”

Sue Douthwaite, managing director of Santander Business Banking, commented: “Our purpose is to help people and businesses prosper and we recognise the important role social enterprises and charities play in helping communities to thrive. With the power of the Crowd, our £200,000 Changemaker Fund will help bring great ideas to life and enable social enterprises and community ventures to grow.”

Changemaker is part of Santander’s flagship community programme, The Discovery Project, which aims to inspire people to have confidence in the future through projects that build skills, grow knowledge and support innovation.

Projects will also benefit from the Crowdfunding team specialists with education, enterprise and coaching support to unlock the further funds which will be released in 2017.
