                  CROWDFUNDING - A talk by ROBERT FOSTER  

Companies are traditionally funded through equity, debt and occasionally through grants. Crowdfunding is an alternative form of funding that is growing in popularity as it becomes more widely understood.

Robert Foster will explore the pros and cons of Crowdfunding, how it works and what it is best suited to.

Case studies and examples, both successful and unsuccessful, are used throughout this interactive introductory workshop.


Background of the speaker: Robert spent several years in the commercial sector working for big and small companies, local outfits and multi-nationals. He set up and ran his own commercial organisation and then decided there must be more to life and business than “this”.
Now Robert enjoys being nosey and opinionated in the social sector. Being able to get to know people, organisations and problems and then helping to sort things out keeps him young.

He advises and consults with local authorities, infrastructure bodies, and third sector and social enterprises to help them achieve their aims.

Areas of Expertise: Strategic planning; social enterprise and trading options; impact and evaluation; marketing and marketing communications; tendering, commissioning and procurement; project management

His clients like: His ability to understand, simplify and solve their problems.
