Event description



With more than $34.4 billion raised across the world in 2015, Crowdfunding offers a serious “opportunity to SMEs to by-pass traditional funding streams such as grant applications or bank loans” (Nesta).

The industry is expected to surpass venture capitalism this year and go above $93 billion (World Bank Report) Recent legislation in the UK and the EU has enabled many Crowdfunding platforms to spring up – some with more of an International or UK remit, others specialised in sectors such as Tech, Creative, Entertainment, Arts, Food & drinks… The crowdfunding landscape can now be a bit daunting to companies.

Kickstarter Crowdfunding platformIn partnership with Kickstarter and Manchester-based Nuuk Digital, Enterprise Europe Network North West is organising this hands-on seminar to help innovative SMEs looking for investment to develop new solutions understand:

• What Crowdfunding is and how it can help you
• How to effectively run your campaign to reach your goals
• The pitfalls, success and rewards

This interactive session will also feature a couple of North West SME case studies that have developed new and exciting products thanks to their Kickstarter campaigns - One being Mymanu Ltd who has developed the world’s first truly wireless earbuds with live translation.
