Big news, PledgeSports.org has merged with Talent Backer!
In an exciting move for us and all our crowdfunders, PledgeSports.org has joined forces with another crowdfunder, Talent Backer, bringing together invaluable resources – all directed at ensuring YOU achieve YOUR goals.
Soon Talent Backer will relaunch as an entertainment crowdfunding operation, continuing the support it has provided to the Arts community, while PledgeSports.org will take over its Sports projects.
This merge will make us both bigger, better and stronger – and it comes just days before the announcement that PledgeSports.org is among the 40 winners of the UN-based World Summit Award, showcasing the world’s best practices in digital innovation.
