What is Fortua?
Fortua makes it easier to raise funds and access resources for outdoor, adventure, and active lifestyle pursuits and projects. We've been called the Outside Magazine, North Face, National Geographic, and Patagonia of crowdfunding, and we think that is a good start for describing who we are and what we believe in.
We help the outdoor, adventure, and active lifestyle community develop new and innovative products and solutions – this includes gear, equipment, technology, clothing, footwear, and more. If you have a new, breakthrough, or make-it-better idea, Fortua is here to help!
We are committed to helping filmmakers, photographers, and writers bring outdoor, adventure, and active lifestyle stories to life.
If you are an individual training to run your first marathon; an event director putting together a local triathlon; a group of mountain bikers developing a downhill flow trail; a neighborhood creating a community garden; a documentary filmmaker creating a film on big wave surfing; an engineer developing a more protective snowboarding helmet; an entrepreneur developing a new clean technology; a team launching an expedition to study space, or anything in between, if it involves raising funds and accessing resources to make an outdoor, adventure, or active lifestyle pursuit or project a reality, then Fortua is the platform for you!
Campaigns can be run to support an entire pursuit or project or a discrete component (e.g. equipment, airfare, etc.) of a pursuit or project.
If you back a Fortua pursuit or project, you can expect written, photo, or video updates from campaign creators as their endeavors unfold. We call this front row access.
Backers also receive rewards from campaign creators at the end of their pursuit or project.
In exchange for support, campaign creators send backers rewards at the end of their pursuit or project. We call this a thank you perk.
