How it all began

The idea of a platform dedicated to helping independent artists raise funds for their projects or businesses was originally conceptualised by Ashon Spooner. On the first day of university Ashon's lecturer stated that “99.9% of students on film courses would either not pursue or sustain a career in film, due to industry limitations and lack of funding.” This inspired Ashon’s need to find a more accessible way to connect filmmakers to relevant sources of funding in order to ensure more projects got off the ground. After letting the concept percolate for a few years, Ashon met his business partner Colin McGregor, formed a partnership and developed the platform Phundee.com
