What is Citizinvestor?
Citizinvestor is a crowdfunding and civic engagement platform for local government projects. We empower citizens to invest in their community and create real change.
Any government entity or their official partners can post projects to Citizinvestor.com. These are projects that have support from City Hall and citizens, but simply lack the necessary funds to be completed.
Once a project is posted to Citizinvestor.com, citizens can donate tax-deductibly to the projects of their choice. Although citizens are asked to enter their credit card information right away, they will not be charged unless the project reaches 100% of its funding goal before the funding deadline.
Once a project reaches 100% of its funding goal, the project is built! Citizinvestors can continue to monitor the project’s progress as it goes from funding to fruition.
Our Core Values
Love where you live. No one likes the guy who hates his hometown. Every city is broken, we know that. But we believe we are called to love where we live.
Be audacious. Dream bigger. Have a healthy disrespect for the status quo. Never fear failure.
Be disciplined. Vision without discipline is false hope. We love lists and focus, because we know that’s what makes us most free to do the best work.
Be self-aware. We know what we’re good at and what we suck at and we love that quality in others.
Transparency. Not lying is not enough. True transparency is in the best interest of everyone from customers, to employees, to partners.
Live generously. We believe that generosity makes us better citizens. One who lives generously seeks to put others above themselves, freely giving their time, energy, and resources.
Always be learning. Our love of learning spills into everything we do, from running constant experiments on our products, to A/B testing messaging, to always having a book in our hands.
For good, for profit. Profit and social impact are not mutually exclusive. We believe the best way to create real change is by creating new value in the marketplace.
