'Open For Change' Merges a Social Conscience With Financial Investments

Smart Crowdfunding is slated to carry out strategic marketing initiatives for the 'Open For Change' crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. The campaign is fundraising to create a financial investment company with a social conscience.

Michael Lavigne, the CEO and co-founder of ‘Open For Change’, started an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign on August 11th. This campaign has a funding goal of $150,000, which needs to be raised by October 10th in order to launch his new socially responsible financial investment company. According to Lavigne: “Open For Change is a for-profit company that empowers people to make a united effort for sustainable change. Our role is to connect you with credible social organizations so you can confidently contribute your time and money to causes you know will have positive impact.”

Open For Change is owned and operated by a group of entrepreneurs and investors who want to make a real difference. It was created with one basic and simple bottom line: “People, Planet, Profit”, which means company profits are earned with the focus being placed on social and environmental impact. Open For Change will invest 1/3 into people in need, 1/3 into the planet and environment, and the final 1/3 will go back into the company. In this way, the company offers a viable way to make a real difference in the social economics of modern society. The company states, “Membership with Open For Change is our way of offering you a safe opportunity to financially invest in social change businesses and play your part in making positive social impact.”

"There has never been a time in our world where solving social problems has been such a public priority. The social change movement is progressing with great momentum and we want to support you in playing your part. Only one question remains... Are you Open For Change?"

Michael Lavigne, Founder/CEO

The company will only invest in socially, economically, and environmentally conscious businesses and products. This approach to business will be a welcome change to all consumers who are also “open for change”. In order to make this a reality Lavigne is reaching out to the crowd via his Indiegogo campaign. The funds raised will be used for: creation of an online platform that will act as a social hub, creation of a documentary, investment in sustainable products and businesses to generate profits that are given back to the communities, overhead and administrative costs, and recruitment of new team-members. As an added bonus to all supporters, the campaign is offering several perk levels. These perks, which serve as funding incentives, range in value from a thank you, to various membership levels, and Open For Change Merchandise. Full details about the project and company can be found on the Indiegogo campaign page.
