BackaBusiness 28 Day Crowdfunding Challenge


Thundafund and SimplyBiz powered by Nedbank, are proud to support small business and one of the ways we do that is with BackaBusiness. 2020 was all about survival, however, small businesses need to do more than just get through the month.

For the month of February we’re challenging you to show a small business some love. Support a crowdfunding campaign and receive rewards or discounted vouchers.

When you buy from a small business, you are helping them to pay the rent, support their families and continue to provide local employment. You get great value for money and that warm, fuzzy feeling of knowing you gave back.

Will you be the difference?


Give your backers – friends, family, loyal and potential customers - a reason to support you by
offering them enticing discounted vouchers or rewards from your store.
