Impact Investment Clinic – CrowdPatch
Are you keen to raise money via crowdfunding for your project, but don’t know where to start? Christopher Norris, Head of Crowdfunding at CrowdPatch, will be available to give advice, guidance, ideas, and general encouragement to delegates at the Investment Clinic.
CrowdPatch is the crowdfunding platform for social entrepreneurs. The platform comprises highly interactive areas of interest called ‘Patches’ that nurture and incubate themed projects and attract like-minded fans and followers. Free to use throughout the process of running a rewards-based crowdfunding campaign, project owners get to keep all the money they raise. There are also opportunities to engage volunteers, via a one-click sign-up process, and plenty of scope to encourage fans and followers to share news about projects via their own social networks.
CrowdPatch’s unique relational approach to crowdfunding means that the network effect is built into the functionality of the site, so that projects that reach over 25% of their target amount can go viral both inside the platform and externally around the web. CrowdPatch also offers bespoke training and digital marketing packages that can be integrated into project budgets. CrowdPatch works alongside commercial crowdfunding platforms (such as Indiegogo and Kickstarter) to help you optimise your chances of raising the funds you need for your project to happen.
