SoFund.us is not just for new companies. We want this to be a springboard for anyone creating a new product or service for the funeral profession. If you company has been around for 100 years and your creating a new product, we would love to have you start a funding campaign on SoFund.us. Companies interested in creating funding campaigns can email projects@sofund.us for more information.

The way new product is created and introduced into the funeral profession is about to change forever. ConnectingDirectors.com creator and Owner Ryan Thogmartin is preparing to soon launch SoFund.us, the world’s first crowdfunding platform dedicated to the funeral profession.

Essentially, crowdfunding is the ability for a large group of people (backers) to band together and make small pledges that collectively are enough to fund a project, product or in some cases a startup company. The most popular crowdfunding site is KickStarter.com. Over $304 Million dollars have been successfully funded on over 29,000 projects. 272 projects have raised pledges of over $100k and 11 projects have successfully raised pledges of over $1 Million dollars. Many companies and funeral professionals have tried to get projects funded on KickStarter.com but have been unsuccessful because the audience was specific enough. SoFund.us is going to be providing that target market through a partnership with ConnectingDirectors.com and will be dedicated to projects directly aimed at the funeral profession.

We are tired of going to funeral conventions and seeing new innovative products and getting emails from new funeral startup companies only to see them quickly fold because they were not prepared financially to endure the slow adaption rate of the profession and funeral directors specifically.

Through SoFund.us and their partnership with ConnectingDirectors.com a platform will be created that will allow a company to create a market for their funeral related product or service before its created, taking a huge financial risk of their shoulders. The goal for SoFund.us is to provide this platform with a mission to catapult the progression of funeral product.
