I definitely made the right decision in running the “Make SheNative Happen” Crowdfunding Campaign through the Praxis Crowdfunding Platform. Working with the Praxis School of Entrepreneurship made running this campaign less stressful. It was still a lot of work and stressful, but they definitely had my back and had my best interests at heart! Monica helped me strategize and plan out my perks, I had access to the cash instantly and I was able to easily add pledges throughout the campaign. I was also able to extend my campaign and keep all the cash at the end of it. It wasn’t an all or nothing deal like on Kickstarter. And finally, Megan and Monica were always there to answer my questions when I had some. If you ever want to start a Crowdfunding Campaign with a goal of raising money and getting local attention, use Praxis Crowdfunding. It’s less risky for you, as rewards-based Crowdfunding is a pretty new thing here in Saskatoon.

It generated funds that we could use right away which was super helpful but more importantly, the whole experience got me out of my comfort zone in so many ways, pushing me to try new things, and contact people I would not have thought of reaching out to. Also, it made sure our look was polished since we would have so many people watching! It also forced me to start and finish a project. I'm usually just good at starting them! The hardest part was to keep trying new things and carry them out despite the rest of the workload not stopping for a second.
It was easy to make updates to the website. Working with Megan was a breeze. I could not believe how fast you implemented changes!
