Pozible is a Melbourne creative industries startup that provides a platform for project creators to present their ideas to a connected audience, worldwide. Crowdfunding became popularised by platforms such as Kickstarter and Indiegogo in the US and Pozible is an Australian based platform. The model behind crowdfunding is that if people love or care about a cause or want to see something new created then they can support it by pledging money. In return, project creators offer rewards matched to the level of funding commitment from donors.

At the time of writing, Pozible has seen over AUD $100 million of pledges from 105 countries and launched over 15,000 projects. Many of the projects and causes that have been supported are from the cultural and creative industries.

The success of the platform and the size of the community has seen the founders branch out into new areas. In 2017 they launched Birchal, a new equity crowdfunding platform connecting brands with potential investors.
