What Is ATB BoostR?
Launched in 2015, ATB BoostR is a rewards-based crowdfunding platform designed for small businesses and entrepreneurs in Alberta. ATB BoostR can be used to raise funds through donations, sell your products, experiences and other services, or even arrange pre-orders for future campaigns. Think of Kickstarter, Paypal and Patreon all rolled into one, but made locally, for locals. Charities and non-profits can also use ATB BoostR to create fundraising campaigns to connect with their communities. Whatever your business, having additional revenue streams never hurts. Plus, even though it’s never fun to ask for money, LOTS of Albertans are looking for new ways to support small businesses they love and want to see stay put.
Traditionally ATB BoostR has been used to help new businesses and startups get off the ground, or to test the waters with new product prototypes, however with the financial uncertainty many business owners in Alberta are facing due to COVID-19, ATB has pivoted to open up the BoostR platform to businesses in Alberta, for free, until July 1st 2020. Even if you don’t have a product you can sell online, you can create a donation campaign that will give your customers a way to support you throughout these challenging times. You don’t have to bank with ATB either!
