Live crowdfunding in packaging: YESNOMAYBE and Pack-e

29 November 2016

On 24 November 2016 the world’s first live crowdfunding event in packaging innovation took place, in sync with the Award Ceremony of Packaging Innovation Contest De Gouden Noot 2016. Crowdfunding and other alternative financing methods offer great opportunities within the activity of packaging, both raising finance for innovative start-ups and driving financial investments for innovative packaging ideas in established businesses. Each participant received 1100,- in real NVC Euros at the start of the evening, resulting in a €176,000 total investment volume. Two teams (YESNOMAYBE and Pack-e) then presented their packaging innovation and urged the crowd to invest in their business proposal.
