Crowdfunding Masterclass – March 14th, Leiston Abbey

Is crowdfunding right for YOU?

In today’s financial climate, understanding alternative funding streams is essential for organisations in the arts, heritage and third sector. How will crowdfunding affect your bottom line, when the bottom line is about so much more than money?

In order to answer this question – and many more! – heritage crowdfunding pioneers DigVentures have teamed up with Edinburgh-based creative crowdfunding experts SoLoCo to offer a weekend Crowdfunding Masterclass for arts, heritage and the third sector March 16 – 17, 2014 at Leiston Abbey, in Suffolk.

We’ll cover everything from basic definitions and models to asset mapping, capacity assessment, defining your value proposition, messaging, communications plans, and what do to with your new networks.

Do you receive public funding, and want to know how you can incorporate crowdfunding in your model?

Do you have a crowdfunding idea, but don’t know where to start?

Are you ready to launch, but want to double-check your idea with practical advice?

By the end of the weekend, you will have the tools and understanding to decide whether crowdfunding is right for your organisation – and the confidence to lead and manage a crowdfunding campaign. We will provide you with plenty of reference materials, and options for follow-up help for your future activities.Image
