Event description


You don't choose crowdfunding, the crowd chooses you!

In 2016 alone nearly 18,000 businesses launched crowdfunding campaigns on 65 UK platforms. With millions of pounds raised over the past year, crowdfunding is one of the most popular methods of fundraising today.

With its evergrowing popularity, however, comes evergrowing competition.

How can a startup be guaranteed that their campaign will be successful on a crowdfunding platform?

This event will enable you to learn about various crowdfunding models, and as a result, you will get a better understanding of your options. Experts will share how to create a compelling application that can pass strict screening processes, as well as what it takes to run a successful campaign.

Who should attend?

Startups and SMEs who consider attracting funding through crowdfunding platforms and all who would like to know more about the process.
