About Ronald Kleverlaan

I am a Crowdfunding Evangelist and a strong believer in the social power of crowdfunding.

I work as a strategic consultant with organizations that believe in the possibilities of crowdfunding, not only for a democratized way of financing companies and (social) projects, but also for increasing social awareness and custom loyalty and for using crowdfunding for marketing and market research.

Clients include local and national governments, (international) NGOs, the European Commission, banks, accountancy firms, VC and Angel networks, universities and some of the most successful and innovative crowdfunding platforms in Europe.

As expert advisor on crowdfunding for the European Commission, founder and board member of several crowdfunding initiatives, Vice-Chairman of the European Crowdfunding Network and strategic consultant on civic- and SME-crowdfunding I know the trends of Crowdfunding in Europe and I help to make them happen.

How can I help you

Do you want to do more with crowdfunding, but not sure how to start? Do you want to start your own crowdfunding platform, start a large crowdfunding campaign or do you want to start using crowdfunding in your organisation?

Contact me to have a chat about the possibilities.

Experience

Over 10 years experience in consulting companies to start using communities and crowdsourcing and over 4 yars experiences with crowdfunding.

Consulted and supported the development of some of the largest platforms in the Netherlands (voordekunst.nl, OnePlanetCrowd, Voorjebuurt.nl).

As international (key-note) speaker at dozens of conferences a year, I was able to explain the power of crowdfunding to over 10,000 people. Some of them were at international conferences in Berlin, Brussels, Paris, Solo (Indonesia), Izmir (Turkey), Orlando (US) and Cartagena de Indias (Colombia). I've also trained more than 250 people in workshops and was a visiting lecturer at universities and business schools in Amsterdam, Nijmegen, Indonesia and the Sorbonne University in Paris.

I am also co-founder of WEBclusive, the leading crowdfunding agency in Europe. We support organizations with consultancy and research to start using crowdfunding with their own platform or by working together with some of the existing platforms. In 2012 we won the Accenture Innovature Award 2012 for the best innovation in the financial sector.
