Crowdfunding has been a game changer for entrepreneurs. It enables entrepreneurs to turn their dreams and ideas into real, profitable business ventures. But the trouble is, not all crowdfunding campaigns are successful. That’s where InventureX comes in. It’s the #1 crowdfunding agency, which helps entrepreneurs through every step of the process. Today, we’re getting an exclusive interview with InventureX’s Chief Crowdfunding Strategist. We’re picking his brain about how his company helps entrepreneurs find success.
Why should entrepreneurs turn to crowdfunding, instead of sticking to a more typical funding route?
Grant: Gone are the days when you needed to pitch your ideas to big investors. These pitches are nearly impossible to do successfully, especially when you’re just launching an idea. Crowdfunding makes it possible for entrepreneurs to raise capital on their own terms. And the ability to tap into social media and go viral is unparalleled. You have all this potential, to raise tons of funds, and share your product, essentially overnight. But the trick is knowing how to do it right. Beginning and maintaining crowdfunding campaigns can be difficult, competitive, and time-consuming.

Why should entrepreneurs work with InventureX when they can launch a campaign on their own?
Grant: It makes sense that people wonder why they should work with InventureX, but the truth is, the internet is inundated with creative crowdfunding campaigns of all kinds. It can be nearly impossible for entrepreneurs to develop a successful strategy. At InventureX, we guide you through the crowdfunding process, really maximizing your potential for crowdfunding success.
Can you tell me about how exactly you help entrepreneurs find success?
Grant: Launching a crowdfunding campaign takes a lot more than a few clicks of a button, if you want it to be successful. That’s where we come in. We help you with the process from start to finish, and includes developing your personal marketing strategy, producing videos and other digital assets, and coming up with a post-funding e-commerce strategy. We know which target audiences to hit for your specific idea, and how to best target them, which can make a big difference when it comes to a project’s success.
What’s your success rate like?
Grant: Since we launched about eight years ago, 86% of our entrepreneurs have hit or surpassed their desired fundraising goals, which is a number I’m very happy with. We’ve also launched more than 350 campaigns. Our expert team has the tools to get campaigns off the ground, no matter how big or small. I’m proud of the fact that we help entrepreneurs raise 5-figures, 6-figures, and even 7-figures.
It seems like you’re backed by some pretty big names.
Grant: It was a great day when Kevin Harrington came on board. As one of the original “Sharks” from Shark Tank, Kevin knows good ideas with big potential when he sees them. He’s known for founding the “As Seen on TV” brand, and has launched more than 500 products, which is wild. Aside from him, Kevin O’Leary, also from Shark Tank, has endorsed InventureX, which I think says a lot about the success of our company, and the quality of our work. If entrepreneurs are interested, we’re happy to complete a free funding review, to see if InventureX can help them reach their crowdfunding goals.
