New project to discover!


Newsletter of February 2022

Dear Citizenfund supporter,


A few days ago, we asked our cooperators what they wanted for Citizenfund in 2022. This is also collective intelligence!

Voici donc nos objectifs pour cette année :

👥 311 cooperators

🌱 29 enterprises financed

💰 583,000 € of capital

🚀 We will invest up to 20.000 € per enterprise

You can help us achieve these goals! 40% of new cooperators join us through word of mouth. Find all the actions to help us reach these goals. 💪

On vous donne bientôt rendez-vous pour la sélection de nouveaux projets !
