Instructor Biography

CrowdFunding Bank,

 Peter is passionate about crowdfunding and start-ups that bring innovation to our lives. Before finding his passion about start-ups he worked as FOREX Dealer, Software Developer, Systems Administrator, Graphic Designer, Business Directory Analyst, Product Development, Sales Manager, National Operations Supervisor, CIO, Managing Director, Member of the board of directors, VP Operations for some of the largest companies in the world such as: Kraft Inc. (aka Kraft Jacobs Suchard), Nestle, Allianz, Deutsche Telecom.

He started back in 2010 with the idea of developing a site that is different from what other platforms had to offer. is dedicated to helping entrepreneurs raise funds for creative business projects and also provide a platform that angel investors can use to support businesses they strongly believe in.

Projects posted on the site can seek support through: micro-donations, micro-loans or in exchange for company shares. Project owners decide the form, backers have the choice to donate or be partners with them, as long as they see the project as an attractive one.

The idea of the platform is to combine crowdsourcing with crowdfunding. In other words it’s a combination of a start-up accelerator with a crowdfunding platform. Open to new members and transparent in terms of operations, we are focused on helping projects to succeed.

We not only help fund great ideas utilizing: donations, loans or company shares, but we also build strong business community around each and every project which is an inexpensive, effective way to grow and expand any business. Funding isn’t enough! Entrepreneurs need the support of the crowd!

The benefit comes from the strong relationship between start-ups and business community who collectively have greater chances to succeed. Together we can provide a unique perspective, lend you credibility, thus helping you secure customers, financing, or a crucial introduction. You need this type of community to bounce ideas off, to provide a reality check, to tell you when you’re about to mess up, to confide in when you’re alone at the top.

Come join us!  We’ve got great ideas how to utilize your knowledge, ideas or funding!
