Pursu.it is a platform devoted to micro funding for amateur athletes.
It is a vehicle offering the world of fans and supporters a personal connection to amateur athletes on their journey to success.
The online platform is a collection of athlete driven projects looking for support for everything from the purchase of a new track bicycle, travel to their next competition, or support for altitude training in a remote part of the world.
Each project has a personalized video and ask outlining the effect it will have on the athlete’s ability to achieve in their sport. Each project has a fundraising target and deadline.
We launched Pursu.it in October 2012 with five athletes from across Canada. To date we’ve featured 15 athletes and in total funded $120,000 to help make their dreams a reality. In July 2013 the platform will be open for international use.
