About Us

 

We are located in Malibu, California and are inspired by our founder's story, our team's passion and our communities dedication to this cause.

Founder's Story

Fund Dreamer's investor and founder Raj Rajkotia was born in India and came to United States twenty years ago. Through community support, dedication to education and work, he has launched several successful startups and held C-Level positions at various Fortune 100 companies. He now lives in Malibu, California.

The year 2013 was a pivotal, life-changing time for Raj. While his teenage daughter struggled with career decisions, he noticed a lot of media coverage about the lack of diversity and women in the work force. Raj learned more about the inequities affecting women and the challenges they face in areas such as business, gender pay equality, education, funding, and opportunities in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). This led to the inception of Fund dreamer and its non-profit foundation - a crowdfunding platform for women that is also supported by a passionate community.

Raj has dedicated this crowdfunding platform to his daughter and is committed to eradicating inequality in funding for women around the world. Ellie Shapiro is the CEO of Fund Dreamer and she also sponsors girls Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) programs.

Team's Passion

Fund dreamer was established with a simple mission of empowering women to fund their dreams . Our goal is to help women turn their ideas and dreams into successfully funded projects and businesses. We are proud to have seen many success stories on our platform. We are also a global platform that accepts 139 world currencies including bitcoin. Compare us to other crowdfunding platforms.

We all come to work everyday because we want to solve one of the hardest problems in the business world today: women have a harder time getting funded than men. Women-owned businesses receive only 7 percent of venture capital investment money, which is highly disproportionate to their role in the economy. Additionally, loan approval rates for female entrepreneurs is 15 to 20 percent less than it is for men. And that is why we created the world's first 101% crowdfunding platform for women. 

While, most of the crowdfunding platforms take anywhere between 8% to 15% of the money raised including credit card fees, we at Fund Dreamer do quite the opposite - we add 1% to your raised funds, leaving you with 101%.  More funds means more dreams brought to life. It makes sense to us. 

Lets fund more dreams, together!
