Why a crowdfunding campaign ?

All Black(s) to the Future members are volunteers and work for free on their spare time. However, some positions require to call on freelance workers who can fully concentrate on “technical” missions (the web integration and legal share in particular) ; without forgetting the various costs pertaining to the settlement of the project. We need all of this, right now, before we could even consider the search for heavier financing (from public aid to sponsors, through the launch of the brand and the e-shop or advertising…).

Another critical need is that B(s)ttf also aims to become a production hub : the “black box” (which will include a hard copy of our best articles and visuals + goodies), the making of videos, and the events implementation. Once again, we need a minimum of means to boot the machine!

How does it work ?

It is quite simple : we set a goal (€ 8000). If it is reached, ulule recovers 8% of the amount and we can develop the project serenely. If by cons we do not succeed (even close to € 2), we lose everything (ulule won’t take its commission either).

Where are we now ?

At the beginning of the campaign (in juin) we set two specific goals :

  • launch the beta version of the website by september
  • design & product our first boxes

We have already completed one of our goals, but we still need you for the future ! From € 5 to € 500, there is no small contibution… so forward / again, THANK YOU !
