What is crowdfunding?
Crowdfunding is an innovative and democratic project financing model that involves the public presentation of a venture, usually via an online platform, and enabling citizens to invest money in it for altruistic reasons or with the aim of making a profit or gaining some other benefit. It is possible to use several investment models: donations, purchase with time distance, loans, investment in equity shares, investment in profit shares, and hybrid models. - Definition by Zoran Rajn, CEO of International Crowdfunding Center (ICFC)
Crowdfunding has become crucial because it enables easier financing of initiatives, whether they are in their early stages of growth or maturity. The World Bank predicts that by 2025, crowdfunding will generate annual investments of $95 billion, with some sources putting the figure as high as $300 billion.

What are the obligations of campaign creators?
Campaign creators are obliged: 1) to provide any information regarding the project and team requested by the platform; 2) to answer every question from investors; 3) show investors what rights and obligations arise for them from investing; 4) to respect the commitments and deadlines towards the investors; 5) spend money in the exact way shown in the project budget; 6) take care of compliance with laws and other regulations.
How long can fundraising take?
Each user freely chooses how long the campaign will last.
Does the platform use a fixed or flexible funding model?
Bona Fides Invest uses both models.
What is fixed model?
In the fixed model, the campaign creator sets a specific funding goal that they must reach within a predetermined timeframe. Backers' credit cards are charged only if the project reaches its funding goal by the end of the campaign. If the goal is not met, no money is collected, and backers' cards are not charged.
What is flexible model?
The flexible model, also known as the "keep-it-all" model, allows campaign creators to receive the funds they have raised regardless of whether they reach their initial funding goal. Backers' credit cards are charged immediately after making a pledge, regardless of whether the campaign reaches its funding goal or not. Even if the project falls short of the target, the creator can still access the funds and use them to proceed with their project.
What methods of payment does Bona Fides Invest accept?
Through the Bona Fides Invest platform, it is possible to make payments through five different channels: 1) Visa, MasterCard, and Maestro cards; 2) Aircash; 3) KEKS Pay; 4) Cryptocurrencies via Paycek; 5) General payment slip or internet/mobile banking.
How do I back a campaign?
To back a campaign, simply find a project that resonates with you and choose your financing model. You can then securely make your contribution through our platform using various payment methods.
Is my payment information secure?
Yes, Bona Fides Invest takes the security and privacy of your payment information seriously. We use secure payment gateways and encryption protocols to ensure the safety of your transactions.
How does Bona Fides Invest ensure the authenticity of projects and project creators?
Bona Fides Invest takes complex measures to ensure the legitimacy and authenticity of projects and project creators. We review each project submission to verify the identity and intentions of the creator. Additionally, our community of backers plays a role in reporting any suspicious or misleading campaigns.
Can I cancel my pledge after backing a project?
Only during the campaign can the pledge be cancelled. Cancellation is not allowed after the campaign has ended. However, if there are extenuating circumstances, you can contact the project creator to discuss your situation.
How do I receive my rewards as a backer?
Once a project is successfully funded, project creators will communicate with backers to collect necessary information and deliver rewards. Project creators are solely responsible for fulfilling the promises made to backers and delivering the project as described.
Is there a limit to the number of projects I can back?
No, there is no limit to the number of projects you can back. You can support as many projects as you wish, depending on your interests and budget.
