How it Works

Setup Your Stash

Use our wizard to setup the smart contract to hold the funds you’ve raised. It only takes a few minutes.

Contribute Funds

After you’ve told your investors what you plan to do with your first round of funding, and you’ve raised your money, convert it to stable coin and send it to your Stash address.

Get Feedback on Your Progress

Conduct the activities you promised to your investors, test assumptions with experiments, set metrics, and ask your funders about pivot/persevere decisions based on your results.

Poll Your Funders

As you exhaust your funds from each round, document a new set of activities to undertake with your next round, request a funding amount, and poll your investors to disburse the next round.
