Toronto, Ontario – Crowdtilt.com announces that the San Francisco-based company is now providing crowdfunding campaign services to Canadians (Canadiens) to help users fund experiences, purchases, and causes with help from their friends, family, and extended networks via rewards-based and perks-based crowdfunding campaigns.

CrowdtiltOpen offers Tilters Rewards-Based Crowdfunding Campaigns in Canada

In the first wave of fundraising campaigns, the local Crowdtilt team has seen Canadians tilt (successfully reach their fundraising goal) campaigns to throw elaborate bachelor and bachelorette parties, buy group-funded birthday gifts, and even help replace the University of Toronto’s broken radio transmitter. Dedicated to making it easy for groups and communities to come together to make amazing things happen, Crowdtilt streamlines the entire process to make it simple, secure, and worry-free.  Using Crowdtilt is easy and campaigns can be set-up in just three simple steps.

“It has always been Crowdtilt’s intent to come to Canada,” explained Tim Ryan, Country Manager at Crowdtilt Canada. “We’re really excited to see what types of experiences and causes Canadians will tilt. In a country like Canada, the opportunities are endless – everything from a cottage weekend with friends to a group outing to a sports event. Not to mention the social and civic applications.”

“Tilters” (as they’re known) start by identifying their campaign and deciding how much they want to raise. Campaign champions get their friends involved, sharing the news of their campaign with their network by tweeting, emailing and posting to Facebook to generate excitement. As funds pour in, those involved get to watch the campaign tilt, at which point everyone’s cards are charged and funds are received via direct deposit. If users raise more than their targeted amount, an even greater purchase or experience can unfold.

“Whether you’re planning an event or looking for the easiest way to split the cost of a purchase or experience, Crowdtilt makes group-funding easier than ever before,” Ryan continued.

By Robert Hoskins

To meet the growing demand for crowdfunding financial services, Crowdtilt announced the close of their $12 million Series A funding. The round was led by Andreessen Horowitz, with participation from Sean Parker, SV Angel, DCM, as well as CrunchFund, Alexis Ohanian, Elad Gil, Naval Ravikant, Sam Altman, Matt Mullenweg, Dave Morin and Justin Kan. Also joining Crowdtilt’s board of directors is Jeff Jordan, partner at Andreessen Horowitz and former CEO of OpenTable.

The investment will support the explosive growth of the company, while further improving the product and user experience. Crowdtilt is being used for everything from collecting money for a fantasy football league among friends, all the way to an entire community rallying together to save their iconic toy store from closure.

“Our product and team are kicking ass, so we want to further invest in growing and expanding both. Our ultimate goal is still to help groups do more with each other, and this funding allows us to double down on various extensions of our product, such as our API, to further that goal,” said James Beshara, CEO of Crowdtilt.

Crowdtilt’s API, currently in closed beta, also allows anyone to create their own crowdfunding application, such as group payments, pre-sales commerce options, complete standalone crowdfunding applications or even social fundraising sites.

“Manual processes for coordinating payments across groups is inefficient and increasingly obsolete. Crowdtilt has built a highly efficient platform that is being used by all kinds of groups for all kinds of use cases — buying movie or concert tickets, collaborating on gift or travel spending, even funding school programs or public works projects. It is a robust collaborative payments platform for an increasingly collaborative web,” said Jeff Jordan, partner at Andreessen Horowitz.
