Telecom Italia is now also a participant in the crowdfunding market. It has just launched its new crowdfunding platform called WithYouWeDo. The new tool is now available for people and companies so that they can promote and finance innovative projects, which have good social value for the community.
The platform has its origin in the Corporate Social Responsibility activities of Telecom Italia. The program “#ilfuturoeditutti” is committed with the creation of social value together with the people who live in the communities where Telecom Italia operates. It brings a new vision to social issues, emphasizing inclusion, participation and attention. The approach has been efficient and well managed sporting the motto: “fare bene il bene” (“to do good things well done”).
The platform is in tune with the efforts of Telecom Italia to promote the digital and technological development of the country and it focuses in three main areas: digital culture, social innovation and environmental care.
The projects are kept in the platform for a period from 90 to 120 days, as they wait for financing of interested investors. The media promotion of the platform involves the goalkeeper of the national soccer team Gigi Buffon. Those who contribute with at least 5 euros until May 16th are eligible to be selected to meet Buffon in Vinovo on May 28th. At the opportunity, they will kick a penalty Buffon will try to defend.
