About the Organization


Douw&Koren is the worlds first crowdfunding consultancy agency. Since 2010 we have been working together with creators, bank, financers, platforms, researchers and other parties to give crowdfunding a solid place in our current financial infrastructure. Because we witness on a daily basis what the power of the crowd can do, we now felt it was about time we celebrated this.

CROWDF€ST was organized as part of Amsterdam Capital Week and in cooperation with StartupAmsterdam
