> Support exciting social ventures. Buzzbnk ventures are delivering exciting social benefits in a wide variety of fields from social welfare and community development through to education and environment. Many are emerging social enterprises pursuing innovative goals that are ‘under the radar’ for traditional giving.
> Get back in more ways than one. Buzzbnk encourages ventures to provide their supporters with a range of fun and exciting benefits and rewards. Returns are in the form of goods or services, revenue participation, and possibly even the return of their money once the venture has achieved success.
> Become involved in a more personal way by offering the venture your skills, your time, by taking part in events and becoming advocates for the venture and letting others in your own social networks know about the venture.
> Make the money go further. Supporters are able to use the funds they get in return for their support (either via loan or revenue participation) towards other exciting social ventures they chose to support.
> Harness the power of the internet with its ability to reach and engage beyond people’s immediate networks and integrate social media to build a crowd of supporters to bring change in the world.
