OVERVIEW

About the business

iFunded is a startup from Germany that focuses on real estate investments. Their goal was to build an online investment marketplace for Private & institutional Investors to make real estate investing accessible, simple, transparent, and affordable.

Investors can invest and participate in the development of selected real estate projects and generate high returns. Real Estate Developers get access to an alternative financing opportunity and increase public awareness in the early phase of their project to profit from the marketing effect.

iFunded cooperates with national and international building contractors and project developers to provide information on various real estate projects on the platform. Investors can get support in selecting the right real estate project, choosing an investment strategy, and getting continuous information on current investments and market reports.

OVERVIEW

Project tasks

  • Build a web-based investing platform from scratch that combines the successful concept of crowd financing with technology, attractive investment opportunities, and a clean Customer Experience.
  • Design a new Brand Identity for iFunded and create a new marketing website

Our Client wanted to open the world of real-estate crowdfunding to Germany and make usability one of the brands selling points.

A similar crowdfunding platform hasn’t existed yet. The biggest challenge of iFunded was introducing a new digital product to the underdeveloped and strictly regulated German market.
