    Fundable promised us to pay back the fee if there is no investment made after they publish our startup. We got only irrelevant sales emails not even one investor interest. When we contacted them, they lied and didn’t accept to refund. Total scam.

    Hi Jason,
    Thanks so much for this information. Can you tell me if you have any additional insight into crowdfunding platforms that support medical / therapeutic device campaigns? After spending a significant amount of time working on our Kickstarter launch, Kickstarter denied our launch because they had just past a new policy which prohibited the launch of medical devices. Our product is NOT a medical device, it is a therapeutic device used ON PETS. Further it’s not regulated by the FDA – only devices use on humans are regulated by FDA. Indiegogo and many other platforms have also past the same policy. I’m of the profound belief that they don’t understand FDA’s regulatory system so they bucket many devices into the “medical device” category. On a separate note I did hear back from Fundable, and they have given us the green light to launch on their platform. To bring this full circle back to my original question… Do you know of any other crowdfunding platforms other than Fundable that would permit the launch of a therapeutic or medical device for PETS?

    Hi Kristine,

    This isn’t something we are too sure about, though we suspect it would be prohibited by most crowdfunding platforms. We’d suggest contacting various crowdfunding sites to see if they’d permit fundraising for such a device. Sorry we don’t have a better answer for you, but best of luck!

      Hi there, curious to know if your article was written based on research and interaction with users of fundable or simply broad research based on marketing materials available online. Thanks.

        Hi Daniel!
        When reviewing crowdfunding platforms like this one, I research all available sources of information on the platform in question, including independent analysis, the company’s marketing materials, news reports, and feedback from users of the platform.

        Cheers,
        Jason
