I am very excited to announce Peerwith will be launching a crowdfunding campaign specifically aimed at experts active on Peerwith. By investing in Peerwith, you will be given the opportunity to profit from future successes as stakeholders, and to help steer the direction of our business.
It has been our mission to fundamentally improve author services by empowering the experts and taking out unnecessary middlemen. To-date our focus has been on setting up successful partnerships with global publishers (e.g. Brill, Emerald, Hindawi), and piloting partnerships with universiities and research institutions (e.g. Erasmus University Rotterdam) which greatly enhance our reach. Crowdfunding is the next logical step for our expert-led, researcher-services platform. And with this new phase, we will be shifting our focus to accelerating the growth of institutional solutions, as well as fine-tune our services offered to a global academic community.
With Institutional Solutions, researchers at an institution are given access to thousands of academic experts from around the world. Institutional Solutions packages can improve the quality of research output and grow an institution’s scientific impact. The networks and relationships of expert stakeholders in Peerwith will help us grow and solidify this solution within the Peerwith offerings.
Unique to Peerwith is that our experts work directly with researchers, with no third-party middleman sitting in between. Key to the quality, tailored services we offer is this unique relationship and who better to drive the focus on researcher needs than the very experts who receive an average rating of 4.94 out of 5 from our researcher customers.
We believe that by empowering Peerwith experts and making them part of our company, we can together provide the ultimate platform for researcher services, taking us as a business successfully into the future. We look forward to taking this next, exciting step and to bringing you along with us on the journey. Stay tuned for more announcements on our crowdfunding campaign!
If you have any questions, feel free to comment below. We like to focus this crowdfunding on “the crowd” as much as possible so we are taking an open approach and are looking to stimulate (sharing) thoughts on this topic. So please ask questions or post comments which we can respond to and learn from so that we can adapt our platform even better to the wishes of the community.
