Kelly is passionate about ideas, getting them into the world and helping others do the same.With a background in design, marketing and strategy Kelly loves to get ideas, products and projects out of people’s heads and into the real world.

As an expert in rewards based crowdfunding, she’s raised £80k for her own projects on Kickstarter, and $5m for UK and EU based campaigns in her previous role as design, technology and hardware manager for Indiegogo.

As founder of The Pop-Up Pinhole Co. she has helped reconnect thousands of people with the physical experience of photography and sold her products globally.

She also knows a thing or two about building and activating communities. In 2016 she developed and ran a pop-up tiki bar in the heart of Dalston and also runs the popular Instagram account @fruit_stickers where over 18k people check in to see its daily updates.

Bringing these experiences together, she regularly lectures on entrepreneurship in design at Colleges and Universities across the UK, and acts as a consultant to help first-time founders to get their ideas off the ground.

Students from any course, background and level can attend.
