Are you interested in how to make crowdfunding work for you – many businesses would say you should be! We worked on an EU project to bring crowdfunding skills to small businesses…
A lot of businesses have found it difficult to get funding from banks – which has always been the way it’s been done. Increasingly, businesses are beginning to look at crowdfunding as a viable alternative. Originally used mainly by charities to fund small projects, crowdfunding has developed fast. There are now many different platforms, all offering slightly different packages.
For many, this may appear daunting. When you’re looking for funding, you need confidence that you’re going down the right route. A new website – CRUCIAL Crowdfunding – aims to make crowdfunding simple, by showing you how to make the most of the many opportunities available.
We worked on the EU funded project to help businesses and charities:
- decide which type of crowdfunding is best for you – debt or equity, donation or reward
- choose which of the many different platforms around is most suitable for your project
- plan your critical pre-campaign period so you are able to make the most of the campaign itself
- manage the campaign itself so you are best able to secure success
Further work is planned to develop resources for charities and other not-for-profits.
