The BidOkee team is thrilled that out project has been selected among five finalists for the Viatec Technology Awards in the category of Technology Strategy of the Year. Our developer-partners, Caorda Solutions, entered our project for consideration and we are stoked to be chosen as a finalist.

The awards celebrate the achievements of technology companies responsible for making Greater Victoria the fastest growing technology region in B.C., as well as the educators, creators and innovators that support this sector.

The Strategy of the Year award recognizes the best strategy implemented by or for a Greater Victoria organization. The judges will consider impact and results achieved from the underlying strategy.

BidOkee’s DIY crowdfunding platform was submitted as a MVP project – minimal viable product – as we develop a SaaS model – “software as a service” (try to keep up with the acronyms) – to disrupt the rewards-based crowdfunding industry. (more…)

Gamification is the application of game mechanics and game design techniques to engage and motivate people to achieve goals.

BidOkee provides all of the same benefits of other crowdfunding sites with the addition of loyalty rewards that can be used in a gamified process for the acquisition of real-world goods.

A highly sophisticated and robust auction and ecommerce platform and contest generator is built in to the BidOkee gamified crowdfunding model, allowing campaigns to integrate cool rewards into their site. Through the etail, gamification and loyalty rewards components, BidOkee is able to structure a revenue-sharing model with campaigns. Through advertising, sponsorships, product sales, affiliate offers and the sale of virtual gamified components, BidOkee aims by year five to be providing in excess of $100 million dollars in shared revenue with start-up companies. It is sort of like a cooperative model.

BidOkee is revolutionizing crowdfunding.

We are building a do-it-yourself crowdfunding platform to let anyone create their own, stand-alone, customized crowdfunding site.

And we’re building in gamification, e-commerce and multiple revenue streams beyond direct pledges to share with each campaign. Our goal is to be sharing $100 million annually with our campaigners. It is sort of like a cooperative model.

One of the ways we are fomenting revolution is through the building of network value and social currency.

In traditional crowdfunding, backers are only as good as their wallets. BidOkee wants to open crowdfunding up to everyone. To do this, we have created a “give or get” DIY crowdfunding model. Backers can pledge their own money or get friends to do so.

If backers have thousands of followers on Facebook, LinkedIn, G+, Twitter or YouTube, they are influencers and provide a network value – and should be rewarded for it.

The future of crowdfunding will be powered
by a cooperative DIY SaaS system model that resolves numerous pain points in the crowdfunding industry.

BidOkee provides the freedom to develop stand-alone, branded, customizable DIY crowdfunding sites that integrate seamlessly with ecommerce and etail platforms, and incorporate loyalty programs, gamified features and a revenue sharing model.

Vancouver-based Quilageo Inc. has launched a prototype version of the world’s first gamified crowdfunding platform called BidOkee.

Scott Steinberg, author of The Crowdfunding Bible, featured BidOkee on NewsWatch TV. As Scott declares, “this could change crowdfunding as we know it.”

“There is massive proliferation of crowdfunding sites,” says Eyal Lichtmann, CEO of Quilageo. “There are over 450 crowdfunding platforms worldwide and hundreds of thousands of campaigns launched annually.”

BidOkee’s Vision of Migration to DIY Crowdfunding

Please share this.

Birds fly south for the winter. So do people in some cases. But crowdfunding, as we now know it, tends not to encourage migration.

Here’s what we mean: Successful crowdfunding campaigns build networks, usually by engaging the family and friends of initiators, followed by concentric circles outward as word spreads.

When the campaign succeeds, the community that has been built around it tends to disappear.

BidOkee is building a do-it-yourself crowdfunding platform that will allow anyone to create their own crowdfunding site, with features and components that exceed anything existing crowdfunding sites offer, including e-commerce and gamified capabilities and other revenue-generation steams. (more…)

BidOkee Crowdfunding Pays it Forward

Crowdfunding is still remarkably new and it is changing radically day by day.

A lot of crowdfunding campaigns are learning on the job, finding out what works (and, too often, what doesn’t) by trial and error.

It would be ideal if successful campaigns could give a leg up to newbies. And it would be especially valuable if campaigns could support each other through cross-pollination.

BidOkee is making that possible.

We are building a do-it-yourself crowdfunding platform that will let anyone build their own crowdfunding site with features and components that exceed anything in the industry today – including multiple revenue streams.
