More and more fashion and technology start-ups and scale-ups are turning to crowdfunding to finance the next stage of growth. But the journey is far from easy and can be just as challenging, if not more so, than finding an institutional investor.
This breakfast Masterclass will help you:
- Decide if crowdfunding is right for you
- Choose the right crowdfunding platform
- Establish the right level of funding and equity release
- Plan your campaign and marketing programme
- Juggle the campaigning and the business as usual
- Engage with and incentivise investors prior to and during the campaign
- Manage your investors once you have them on board
Done right crowdfunding can be a brilliant way to raise funds and often is a brilliant way to raise more funds than you thought you needed! However, done wrong it can be a waste of time and effort and companies can walk away empty handed.
We’ve found two experts – one to help you with the planning and one to give you the benefit of their experience of a successful campaign that over-funded.
Join us for a light breakfast, insightful presentations and Q&As and the chance to meet with peers who are facing the same challenges and exploiting the same opportunities at a luxury central London location – W London – Leicester Square.
We are delighted to announce our first speaker.
Nicholas Ayoub, co-founder of a new generation fashion and lifestyle platform Opumo, which is positioning itself as the “digital department store” of the future.. Opumo recently ran a crowdfunding exercise and hit its funding target of £350,000 with eight days still to run on its campaign. Nicholas will be sharing his experiences and taking questions from the audience.
