This interview is in media cooperation with Frankfurt Forward (https://www.frankfurtforward.com/news/). We talk to Johannes Laub (https://www.linkedin.com/in/johannes-laub/), one of three Founders and Managing Partner of CrowdDesk (www.crowddesk.de), a Frankfurt-based fintech. They started out as a crowdfunding tool for municipalities and developed into a white-label solution for crowdfunding platforms, as of January 2020 running 56 crowdfunding platforms. They developed the tool further into a point at which startups can raise funds e.g. by integrating their “Go fund me” button on their website.

In the interview, we talk about how he went from an apprenticeship in a bank selling mutual funds, to university, had some experiences with starting a music label. He even experienced sales cycles in municipalities and found startup funding as a lucrative market.

With the go-fund-me Button a company placed on its website, any company sticking to the local rules could raise funds this way.
