-The who, what and why of crowdfunding
-Crowdfunding stories
-Practical group exercises
-Developing your network and target audience
-The training will also incorporate a hands-on simulated crowdfund so that you can try out your new skills straight away.

“I feel much more confident about the role of crowdfunding. Practical tips and step by step guides were really useful. I would recommend the session before launching into a crowdfunding campaign.”
Sara Johnstone, The Work Room

“I expected to find too much complicated information and to be put off. I found it very helpful, positive and good fun.”
Isobel Leckie, Causey Development Trust

“Addressed areas I hadn’t even thought of. Answered my questions and gave me ideas and guidance for a campaign.”
David Orr, Fraser Centre Community Trust
