Campaigneurs, a Gothenburg-based startup which officially launched today, aims to help charities and nonprofits worldwide develop partnerships with responsible business partners.
The online platform offers a new kind of matchmaking service for charities and businesses – based on their online profile description. This way, Campaigneurs helps to reduce unnecessary time and costs spent by charities looking for corporate funding. Although the Swedish startup is aiming to have a positive impact on the world, Campaigneurs itself is not a non profit organization.
Janet Alexandersson, the CEO of Campaigneurs, created the platform in response to lack of financial funding towards humanitarian aid in the Middle East. The founding team at Campaigneurs.com consists of three people.
CEO Janet Alexandersson explains her motivation to build this startup: “This year I saw a news report about a hospital in Syria being forced to close due to lack of financial funding. That is why I created Campaigneurs, to place charities in direct contact with businesses willing to fill that financial gap”.
She added: “Businesses get to support their communities and fulfil their corporate social responsibility and charities gain a financial shortcut, a win-win situation for all”.
Instead of raising funds to aid charities directly, Campaigneurs appeals to businesses to contact and support charities by contributing time, services and money to those that best suit them.
The small team behind Campaigners.com is now calling for all businesses and charities to try out the online matchmaking platform. The benefit for early adopters: First 50 signups get premium access to the platform which includes one year membership and online support.
