Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
So my name is Sam Taylor, I am 20 years old and go to Nottingham Trent University, where I am in my final year of a bachelors degree in Marketing.
About two years ago I came up with a product idea which would revolutionize the head and ear phones market, allowing music listeners to take control of their music. The specific details I cannot go into for patent purposes.
Anyway, Tried to pitch my ideas to as many companies as possible including Sony, logitech and even Apple, however none of the big brands would even take my call. I then submitted my idea to investment companies. A number of them required initial funding of over $10,000.
Finally an American company called Davison kept ringing and ringing me and when I was finally able to talk to them, their interest in me pursuing this idea motivated me to turn my idea into a reality, however as a third year student I havent been able to to afford to pay for the pre development of my product.
However I wont let this stop me, Its my dream to see something on a shop shelf and be proud to of made it. Ive created this crowd-funding page to turn this dream into reality. I hope if your'e reading this you have the generosity and believe to really make a difference and help me pursue this business idea.
If you have any questions about my idea or even fancy going into business with me I would love to hear from you. Any one who is wonderful enough to donate £15 or more will receive an exclusive free pair of headphones when they are ready to be released.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read my pitch, I hope we can start this journey together and turn my idea into a real product.
