After over a year and a half of hard work, Mawwell, an international rewards-based crowdfunding platform dedicated to creative and innovative projects announced its public launch last week.
The launch consisted of following 4 great projects:
|Eclectic – The Album: a world music album project by Dubai producer DJ AKS. He has worked with Enrique Iglesias (Turn The Night Up official Remix), Sean Kingston, and also remixed officially for Top Bollywood Films Soundtracks such as : Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Student of the Year.
|Polly Gone: a well written and illustrated book for children, which story is about a triangle who wants to become a square. This is a unique book project as it was written by a 10 year old kid who happens to be a writing genius. The parents have taken the initiative to crowdfund the publishing of the book.
|Qrated: a cultured and fun tourism voice guide application which aims at providing the best guided tour experience and break with the traditional inanimate guides (such as old fashioned audio guides and travel guide books).
|Seven Quests – poem to game: an online strategy game based on the 1,000 year old Persian epic poem of Rostam and the Epic of the Kings (The Shahnameh) by Ferdowsi. The game creator is passionate about making riveting gaming experiences that serve to share the rich heritage of the Middle East with the rest of the world.
How is Mawwell different from other crowdfunding platforms?
- Mawwell welcomes international projects and target the Middle East and North Africa region more than any other international platform. Indeed, the MENA ranks amongst the fastest growing region digitally and hosts a fast growing number of creative and innovative projects .
- The site does not welcome charity projects .
- The site open to projects related to music, technology, arts, gaming, publishing, fashion, design .
- The site does not propose you to directly invest in a project but rather to make a pledge in exchange of physical rewards directly related to the project (ie: digital copy of a music album for a music project, pdf or printed version of a book if the project is about book publishing).
- If the project fundraising campaign does not reach its targeted amount by its targeted timeframe, all pledges will automatically be cancelled
