Funding Portal To Emphasize Diligence

Most crowdfunding portals do not vet their offerings.

Now, the self-proclaimed ShadowFoundr says that it will ensure “all opportunities placed on their platform go through stringent due diligence, undertaken not only by themselves, but also via their network of private investors, who must then fund the opportunity to at least 30% of its target, before it is put to the Crowd.”

By doing this, ShadowFoundr thinks that the due diligence and the pre-funding will decrease the failure rate among crowdfunded enterprises.
