Why first time crowdfunders should think before they leap

Why first time crowdfunders should think before they leap

At the launch of The Crowdfunding Academy last month, we gave over 70 non-profit fundraisers, campaigners and CEOs a taste of our Expert Practitioners’ Course, launching on 10th November.

With only a couple of hours to give them a taste of four days’ worth of content, we thought long and hard about what to focus on.  We stayed clear of choosing a platform as, although it seems to be the received wisdom that this the first thing to do, we maintain it’s some way down the track.  Instead, we focused on challenging myths and started the session with the real first step - making the business case.  We're glad we did, as it proved to be one of the most popular topics.

Top 9 Crowdfunding Myths Debunked

A lack of skills and knowledge about crowdfunding within organisations is the biggest barrier to using crowdfunding, according to NESTA’s 2016 Crowdfunding Good Causes Report.  

This lack of knowledge is exacerbated by the common misperceptions that exist regarding crowdfunding.

It is time to debunk these myths and set the facts straight in order to increase your chances of creating and executing a successful crowdfunding campaign.

Introducing the UK’s First Ever Crowdfunding Academy!

The Social Change Agency in conjunction with Hubbub is excited to announce the launch of the UK’s first ever Crowdfunding Academy, which will take place 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.
