The effects of the global lockdown in early 2020 cannot be overemphasized as we saw businesses shut down due to either operational inability or lack of demand to services they offer. NASD's approach post lockdown to accelerating growth and enabling innovation was to create a platform that ensures a smooth and transparent way for these businesses or enterprises to raise capital.
Venture Ramp which is a crowdfunding portal was created to give these enterprises a way to raise capital from numerous donors. For anyone looking to raise capital for businesses, projects, causes or any reasons whatsoever, NASD fully assures that its crowdfunding platform VentureRamp can accommodate that need.
