ZingoHub was incorporated in March 2014 by Haider Aly – Reza and Sayantan Das. It offers a first of its kind crowdfunding platform that combines the functionality of commerce. ZingoHub is a place for brands, creators, and innovators to showcase their ideas and products to a larger audience.
“So, if you are doing something awesome out there, like the first gig for your college band or hosting your first art gallery show, we are game to help you ideate and share it with people around the world.”
The crowdfunding platform concept of ZingoHub
The concept evolved as Haider Ali-Reza and Sayantan Das wanted to build identities around the countless number of amazing brands, creators and innovators in this world. A model where a social marketplace rewards-based crowdfunding and e-commerce platform existed in harmony seemed like a perfect potion to dissolve barriers and give rise to a world of amazing brands, products and ideas.
The journey so far
The journey so far for ZingoHub is quite successful and this is something which keeps the entire team motivated. So far, this crowdfunding platform has privately raised 6,00,000 USD. Recently, its operations expanded into Singapore and Dubai.

Challenges related to the crowdfunding concept
Crowdfunding is relatively a new concept in India. To make people aware of its concept, its potential and reach is the challenge which this startup is facing at present.
“We are more focused on reaching out to influencers and build a community around our projects & brands. Additionally, the focus is to extend support to students and members of the creative community.”
ZingoHub aims to be a global crowdfunding platform by the end of 2017. And, each and every member of Team ZingoHub is working tirelessly towards achieving this goal.
