04.04.2019 The financing phase ends on April 17th

IdeenReich Rheinhessen - The crowdfunding competition turns into the home straight.

The ten creative minds who have been promoting supporters for their projects online since 6 March at www.ideenreich-rheinhessen.de are now heading for the final spurt. Anyone who has not raised the desired amount of money by the end of the financing phase can not realize his project within the framework of this competition. So there is a lot at stake. So far the projects are quite differently successful; the first project with the art experience Mo / Ve / ment has reached its funding amount, with some missing only a little to the finish, with others still a larger share is missing. But Christian Halbig, Managing Director of Rheinhessen-Touristik and initiator of the competition, is certain: "Everyone will go all the way to the end and promote supporters, because all are committed behind their ideas. This is shown by the many attractive thank-you notes offered in return for the financial support. "

Ideas advertise with attractive consideration for supporters.

Tourist, innovative, creative, regional - this not only applies to all crowdfunding starter projects. Even the so-called "thank you notes" are as extraordinary as the project - they are offers and things that can not be bought anywhere, be it an original artwork by the artist Liesel Metten, the exclusive "Hike of your life for you and your friends" Participation in a workshop for sculptures, a vineyard tour or mystery walk - exclusively for the family or your own circle of friends. Depending on the amount of support, the lender may select among the consideration.

Creative minds see crowdfunding as an opportunity

The crowdfunding competition IdeenReich Rheinhessen was launched in August 2018 in order to mobilize the great potential of ideas and mover qualities in the region and for the region - in such a way that not only financial support, but also advice, eg on the market opportunity of the idea, and customer feedback from the beginning. On the contest page www.ideenreich-rheinhessen.de each idea generator presents his project in detail with text, picture and video. Until April 17, 2019, at 11:59 pm, each participant has time to drum up their idea and ask for support, then the funding phase is over. If you have not reached the target by then, you can not implement your project as part of this competition, the money goes back to the supporters.

Additional prize money

In addition to financing via the supporters, prize money in financing grants is awarded in the competition through the regional savings banks. The three promoters, who will find the most supporters, will hand over staggered prizes at the closing ceremony of the IdeenReich Rheinhessen in May 2019.

Platform IDEENWALD creates basis

The appropriate platform for this project is provided by IDEENWALD, the regional crowdfunding platform for Rhineland-Palatinate & Saarland. Volker Wissing was started. It enables the projects to be perceived by a large number of people - an important prerequisite for success. Minister Wissing welcomes the crowdfunding competition Rheinhessen on IDEENWALD: "The IdeenReich crowdfunding competition Rheinhessen is something completely new for the tourism sector. Here, the tool of crowdfunding is used, on the one hand, to develop ideas for tourism and, on the other hand, to decide together which project will actually be implemented. Crowdfunding is a modern form of direct citizen participation that has great potential, especially in tourism. With sufficient funding, projects in the region have a good chance of being implemented quickly, "said Wissing. "I am pleased that Rheinhessen Touristik is taking this innovative path."
