Crowdfunding, 23 May 2017

23 May 2017

Crowdfunding is where individuals come together to support and fund projects by other individuals or organisations. A campaign can be to gather donations, obtain loans, raise your profile, offer equity, test and idea or product with your market or build an active supportive community for your organisation.

Crowdfunding is an empowering alternative to grant applications which can be used for a variety of purposes - getting a project off the ground; refurbishing a building; financing a film or exhibition or funding a startup company or small business.
