The UK has made extraordinary advances in crowdfunding, specifically in the equity arena, but before it can claim the title of “world leader in crowdfunding,” the UK still stands to gain something from the US in terms of rewards based crowdfunding.
We’re excited to announce the launch of the UK’s first ever Crowdfunding Academy at Nesta on the 19th September 2016. The Academy is for people and organisations looking to learn about the best ways to use crowdfunding to increase their social impact. It will cover best practice in digital fundraising along with cutting edge movement building techniques, enabling participants to get the most out of this fast-growing area.
“More importantly, we want to raise money through crowdfunding – as opposed to the traditional venture capital route – because we fundamentally believe in fundraising in a positive, open, constructive and supportive way – in a way that involves the friends, family, professional contacts, customers and stakeholders in our business. I mean, that’s why we started Hubbub to begin with. It’s a no brainer” …… Jonathan May, CEO of Hubbub talks about why crowdfunding for crowdfunders is the systemic approach.
