FUNDME, is really a new idea that our R&D team at The Learning Tree (Pty) Ltd, came up with, 2 years’ago. At The Learning Tree one of our values are that we strongly believe in giving back to people, and that’s where FUNDME came in, and why we created it.
How FUNDME works is, people all buy an online account called “FUNDME Account” for R99. Then after that you will be given a date + – 1-3 months’ time from where the program will start, then you subscribe to our “FUNDME Program” for R299 pm for 3 months.
The “FUNDME program” is a later add-on program from where online coaching and programs will help you rebuild, or create new business model, business plan, and a funding plan. Then once you have completed that, your plans will be assessed by our team of business mentors, and coaches and they will pick the best business idea and plan to be rewarded the funding. The reason you need a “FUNDME Account” is so that you can join a selected group of people that all compete for the funding, then the “FUNDME Programs” are all your online coaching session. We broke it down in stages to help small businesses, and entrepreneurs with their cash flow, they don’t have to pay it all at once.
So, in total you are guaranteed to get the programs when your join the “FUNDME Programs later, it’s just the funding that can only be rewarded to one person in that group. But to stand a chance in getting the funding, and a good business education with our programs its really been priced amazingly!
How we get the funding, and make money from it is, by getting small sponsorships from companies, and we invest some of our own money into it, as we do make money only from the programs, and not the signing up of the FUNDME Accounts, that’s just to cover admin costs, and space your account uses on our web platform, as well as it shows commitment from you, the account holder that you are serious about taking part, as we only open a limited amount of the accounts every 3 months.
