FinoFund was conceived in 2013 as a crowdfunding platform designed to help innovators and other creative individuals access funds for their projects and initiatives. It incorporates a reward system which encourages people to donate across multiple channels. The experience getting the platform up and running is in itself a testament to the need
for such a platform in Nigeria.
The pilot phase and launch of the platform starts on Monday, 19th October, 2015 with six pioneer
projects across the fields of Arts and Technology.
There are also charity projects. Details about the project creators and their respective projects are
stated below. Donations can be made across several channels and more information can be found on the website: http://www.finofund.com
