In order to improve the experience of our social ventures we have created two digital sites dedicated to social entrepreneurship. The first is our organizational website where you can find interesting information about the work we develop, our lines of work, news, publications, inspiring stories of social enterprises in the country and donations to RECON to help us help.
In the same way, it will be possible to know how the social enterprises that work with RECON contribute to the fulfillment of the 2030 Agenda of Sustainable Development Goals. In addition, they can contact our work team and publicize their social entrepreneurship initiative to be part of our community. This page can be visited at www.reconcolombia.org
One of our lines of work is Crowdfunding, that is why we have created RECON Funding, the first digital platform of Crowdfunding or collective funding, online, by means of which economic donations are collected, with the purpose of financing social entrepreneurship projects.
For RECON it is important to provide social entrepreneurs with a platform, in which they can raise funds through the creation of campaigns for the development and / or execution of their initiatives, for this reason we created www.reconfunding.org
Crowdfunding is a great way to raise funds, but it is worth mentioning that results will only be seen if the people who created the campaign commit themselves to give visibility to the project, so that donors are interested, participate and the initiative can meet its goal.
The mechanism of operation of collective funding or crowdfunding is very simple. The requirement is to have a social entrepreneurship initiative that requires financial resources and wishes to get them through donations. At RECON, we have one of the largest payment gateways in the world: PayU, through which we receive the donations that people make to each project with total transparency and security.
With RECON Funding, we bet on new ways of obtaining resources for social enterprise initiatives, becoming the first organization that stimulates the use of Crowdfunding for social entrepreneurship in Colombia.
We do this thanks to the support of Sweden and the United Nations Development Program – UNDP -.
