Introduction to Crowd Funding

Tuesday 26th January 2016 @ 9.30am – 1pm
Venue: Jersey Hospice Care - Training room

Crowd funding is a way of raising finance by asking a large number of people each for a small amount of money. Until recently, financing a business, project or venture involved asking a few people for large sums of money.

Crowd funding switches this idea around, using the internet to talk to thousands – if not millions – of potential funders. Typically, those seeking funds will set up a profile of their project on a website platform. They can then use social media, alongside traditional networks of friends, family and work acquaintances, to raise money.

There are three different types of Crowd funding: donation, debt and equity and we will look briefly at this in this workshop and how they might possibly help your cause.
