Company Summary

InPeople offers a web-based, community-focused solution for entrepreneurs who can neither rely on family money, loans or venture capital to finance their start-up. We allow these entrepreneurs to raise funds straight from the crowd by pitching their project to the community of internet users in exchange for a small share of their business’ future revenue over a 10-year period of time. There is no equity bid; entrepreneurs keep 100% ownership.

    Benjamin Djidi
    Co-Founder & CEO

    I am curious, optimistic and a creative. I am a tech addict and a huge fan of social and community tools. I like badminton, cooking and traveling. I studied corporate finance at IESEG, School of Management -France. Today I’m finally combining both my passions and my work by merging financial and crowding solutions into my first start-up (as a founder) InPeople. Careful though, I have a thing for disassembling and reassembling pens.
