EMPOWERING ATHLETES TO FUND THEIR HOPES, DREAMS AND SPORTING ASPIRATIONS
ProQuest is a crowd-funding platform, created to empower athletes to fund their sports quests and is dedicated to making participating athlete’s dreams a reality. Both individuals and businesses can support and connect directly with each athlete, building a personal connection while, helping them fulfil their sporting aspirations and, journey to success.
One of the toughest challenge for our sportsmen and women is that of funding – there just isn’t enough sponsorship budget available, to fund aspiring and even professional athletes. So, we have created ProQuest, which works very much the same way other crowd-funding sites (like Kickstarter) do with a few important exceptions:
ProQuest caters exclusively to athletes, teams, sports organisations and sports-focused projects;
ProQuest provides the financial support directly to the athlete, irrespective of whether the full campaign goal is reached by the athlete, to help fund items like training, coaching, nutrition, team fees, equipment, travel, and basic living expenses.
ProQuest ensures that the athlete receives all donations – less a 15% administration fee – which ProQuest retains to administer, process and manage the marketing and collection of funds on behalf of participating athletes.
