Got an idea? Looking to start or grow an enterprise? Crowdfunding is a way of raising much-needed funds at the same time as building a community or customer base around your idea. This funding revolution is now worth more than £3 billion in the UK alone, and communities and individuals are using crowdfunding as way of asking their supporters to contribute money, often in return for a reward, to bring an idea, project or business to life.

Join us for this introductory and interactive workshop about how to launch a successful crowdfunding campaign.

— Planning your project: building your team, knowing your crowd, and building your network.

— Creating your crowdfunder: getting started, writing your description, setting your target, exploring matchfunding options.

— Running your campaign: preparing for launch, going live, campaign marketing and promotion.

— An overview of all of the stages of a crowdfunding campaign.

—Tips and tricks for building momentum, bringing in pledges, and bagging matchfunding.

— Examples of successful crowdfunding campaigns.

— Ideas for starting to plan your own campaign.

— Social enterprises.

— Charities.

— Co-operatives.

— Community groups.

— Entrepreneurs.
