Entrepreneur’s Lounge: Crowdfunding your startup

Date/Time: Thursday 20 February, 2020 - 10:00am

Date/Time End: Thursday 20 February, 2020 - 12:00pm

Venue: Innovation Space, Floor 2

Are you looking for ways in which to raise funds for your startup? How about crowdfunding – where your aim is to get a large group of people to pay a small amount of money to invest in your idea. Well known examples of crowdfunding platforms include Kickstarter Crowdcube, Crowdfunder and there are many more. In order to have a successful crowdfunding campaign, it’s not quite as simple as just asking people to invest their money. Come and find out about why you may want to consider crowdfunding and how to put together the best campaign together for maximum impact. The session will take the form of two parts: a short workshop led by our experts, followed by the chance to ask any questions you have specific to your startup and what you want to find out.

This is also an opportunity to find out more about our new Crowdfunding Scheme, where you can gain match-funding from £250 – £500

Please ensure you arrive for the start time of the event, late arrivals will not be permitted.

The workshop will take place at the Innovation Space (Floor 2 Innovation Space, Halpern House, 1-2 Hampshire Terrace, Portsmouth PO1 2QF). The building is a little further along from Subway, Mailbox etc, on the same side of the road in the direction of the seafront.

On arrival, please head straight up to floor 2. If the door is locked, knock and a member of the team will let you in.

If you are unable to attend please let us know.

Please ensure you arrive for the start time of the event, late arrivals will not be permitted.
