The European Crowdfunding Network and MANGOPAY renew their partnership to power CrowdTuesday in Europe and foster a stronger European crowdfunding ecosystem.
Brussels, 22 March 2016. ECN and MANGOPAY are happy to announce that, after a successful collaboration last year, they have renewed their partnership to power CrowdTuesday in Europe.
CrowdTuesday is a periodic meet-up promoted by the European Crowdfunding Network and implemented by its members all over Europe. The initiative fosters crowdfunding platforms to exchange best practices and discuss innovation, as well as to network with professionals from the crowdfunding sector and beyond. With more than forty sessions organized in 2 years, CrowdTuesday has become the must-attend event for European crowdfunding.
With the renewed support of MANGOPAY, CrowdTuesday takes another step towards its main goal: develop strong local crowdfunding ecosystems to eventually build a unified ecosystem at a pan-European level.
Oliver Gajda, ECN’s Executive Director, states: “We are glad to renew our collaboration with MANGOPAY to keep growing CrowdTuesday and bring it together to the next level. MANGOPAY has demonstrated to be a valuable partner to the European Crowdfunding Network, having understood from the beginning that the real potential for the crowdfunding industry will be unleashed only when it reaches a truly pan-European dimension”.
Céline Lazorthes, founder & CEO, MANGOPAY, underlines: “Our aim is to help the local crowdfunding ecosystems to establish, network and grow informed and connected. Crowdfunding platforms have identified us as a dedicated payment solution because we perfectly addresses their needs. We fully support the crowdfunding community.”
