About TribeFirst

TribeFirst is a dedicated crowdfunding agency, specialising in equity and rewards crowdfunding. They provide support and guidance to entrepreneurs looking to raise finance via the crowd, from initial market research & planning, through campaigns and post-campaign development.

The key to TribeFirst’s success is their in-depth knowledge of the crowd finance landscape and the expert insight their team can offer clients.

How TribeFirst uses Crowdsurfer Pro

  • Pre-qualification research when deciding whether or not to accept a client
  • Providing data evidence to clients on important campaign decisions such as platform selection and the setting of campaign targets
  • Use historical fundraising trends to direct and adapt campaign strategy
  • Demonstrate better knowledge of the market than competitors and to support content marketing
In their words

“Recently we nearly accepted a new client that we shouldn’t have done, but didn't make that mistake thanks to Crowdsurfer. If we hadn’t used the Raise module to do due diligence on how other, similar campaigns had fared, then it would have cost the business.”

“In one case a client was being pushed to choose a platform that we thought was wrong for the campaign. We were able to back our advice up with data and get the client to follow our recommendations.”

“Prospective clients come to us with a range of queries about the wider crowdfunding scene. Crowdsurfer Raise gives us the tools to answer even complicated questions easily and quickly.
