100% Project, is a Malaysian startup that aims to push education forward through the crowdfunding
100% Project believes that great strides can only be made in education through collective impact. This means that we want to work with everyone - corporations, foundations, start-ups, social enterprises, schools, parents, teachers and individuals to move education forward in Malaysia.100percentproject.org
The young startup connects with the public, allowing us a chance to contribute to a particular education project
Founded by a trio of friends, 100% Project has done so well at its launch that it ran out of projects to fund
Andrew Yong, co-founder of 100% Project shared, “We’ve been surprised and encouraged by how supportive the public has been—it’s really affirmed how we Malaysians have always been strongly supportive of education and our teachers, it’s just that we’ve lacked, until now, an easy channel through which to help these teachers.”vulcanpost.com
The public was so convinced with the idea that it ran out of projects for people to fund!
So, how does one get crowdsource for a project? First, you have to be a teacher!
If a project is selected, it would be posted on the site's 'Explore' tab for the public to view and contribute
Since its inception, 100% Project has partnered with other businesses to help market their products.
The startup is also supported by MaGIC ( Malaysian Global Innovation & Creativity Centre)!
100% Project has managed to rope in several partners, like FoodPanda and KFI to aid in their pursuit of helping educators fund well-meaning projects. Partners can use 100% Project as a platform to market their services by offering contributors’ perks in the form of discount vouchers to their services.vulcanpost.com
