Bite-sized Learning: Crowdfunding for businesses and start-ups


Are you looking to raise funds for your business through crowdfunding but not sure where to start or what a successful campaign looks like?


Crowdfunding is creating social, economical and community-led impacts across the UK, not only allowing communities and organisations to raise funds, but also raising awareness and support to help make great ideas happen.


This session, run by Crowdfunder, will outline rewards-based crowdfunding – what it is, how you can use it to raise funds and grow your network, and the tips and tricks to creating a successful campaign for your business or start-up.

Where? NatWest Entrepreneur Accelerator, 149 Preston Road, Brighton, BN1 6AF

When? Friday 17 May, 09:30 – 11:30

Who for? Small businesses or start-ups wishing to find out how to raise funds or grow their networks through crowdfunding.

Who by? Jason Nuttall, Crowdfunder. Jason has spent several years securing grants and contracts for charities and social enterprises, and at Crowdfunder now develops partnerships with match funders. Crowdfunder’s mission is to tackle society’s challenges by making ideas happen, and is the UK’s #1 community crowdfunding platform, having raised over £58million for projects across the UK.
