Semi Finalist 29: Crowd4City
Field: Democracy and citizen empowerment
Summary of the idea:
C4C is an online crowdsourcing and crowdfunding platform which enables citizens, public authorities and entrepreneurs to propose, support and finance real estate projects in their community. Crowdsourcing and pooling public opinion for each project ensures a strong level of support for the projects pursued. By offering a collaborative space with a diverse range of stakeholders, a strong communications network and a low minimum investment, C4C makes the building of cities simpler, more democratic and more transparent. With our service communities and citizens can own their city. C4C simply put, is real estate not only for profit, but for the community too.
