Raising Money, working with uncertainty, reducing complexity; all challenges when trying to make an idea happen. With live audience participation, Simon demonstrates what crowdfunding is, how to crowdfund your idea and why you should use crowdfunding to make your idea a reality.
Simon is the head coach at Crowdfunder.co.uk and is one of the UK’s most prolific crowdfunding coaches.
Crowdfunding is a way to raise capital through the collective effort of family, friends, customers and individual investors. The method taps into the collective efforts of individuals through digital channels such as social media and crowdfunding platforms, leveraging their networks for greater reach and exposure.
Over the last four years, Simon has mentored hundreds of successful crowdfunding projects, helping them raise £10’s of millions.
When not helping foster brilliant ideas, you can find him either surfing in Cornwall or jumping out of aeroplanes.
