Civic Crowdfunding : transforming local areas using the Essex Hive
Fri 14 October 2016, 09:30 – 13:30 BST
Crowdfunding has helped entrepreneurs and inventors make their ideas a reality, and over the last four years Spacehive has been helping communities use the power of crowdfunding to transform local areas. Civic crowdfunding has now arrived in Essex and as begin our journey in helping local people deliver projects that matter to them we would like to invite you to our very first crowdfunding event.
Using the Essex Hive, communities can draw on support, finances and resources from every available source; businesses, charities, local authorities, private citizens – any individual or organisation with an interest in improving an area can benefit from using the hive. At this half day workshop you will hear from experts and users alike, get firsthand support help on how to run a successful crowdfunding campaign, and leave the event with an idea ready to be loaded onto the Essex Hive.
