Dreamstarter 2016 Funding Round Opens
9 February 2016 at 9:35 am

Social entrepreneurs and changemakers across Australia are being invited to apply for the 2016 ING DIRECT Dreamstarter funding – an online crowdfunding initiative presented by StartSomeGood and the School for Social Entrepreneurs.

For each successful Dreamstarter candidate, ING DIRECT said it would provide seed funding of up to 50 per cent of the “tipping point” of the crowdfunding campaigns.

“Dreamstarter also provides access to training on how to run a crowdfunding campaign, campaign support and promotion, and financial management courses to help the change-makers sustainably manage and grow their organisation,” the online banking group said.

Since its inception in 2014 the Dreamstarter campaign has supported 44 social entrepreneurs to raise more than $617,000 for social impact projects in Australia.

Dreamstarter alumni include Street Art Murals Australia, a social enterprise focussed on legitimising street art and supporting developing artists – from at risk youth and emerging talent, to professional level artists.

Applications are open at ingdirect.com.au/dreamstarter until 29 February with live crowdfunding campaigns launching in April 2016.
