Crowdfunding Bootcamp can help entrepreneurs raise funds

Crowdfunding Bootcamp can help entrepreneurs raise funds

A new initiative to help entrepreneurs raise money via equity crowdfunding has been launched by crowdfunding communications agency TribeFirst and global accounting and advisory company, Grant Thornton.

Called the Crowdfund Bootcamp, it’s designed to help individuals plan, launch, market and run campaigns in as little as five weeks.

John Auckland, founder of TribeFirst, says: “Crowdfunding is a scary thing for newcomers. You’re going out to the world and very publicly saying: ‘Back me with your money’.

“The fear of failure, or of doing things the wrong way, is incredibly daunting. The platforms do a great job of providing advice, guidance and support for campaigners, but it’s understandably difficult to develop a one size fits all solution.

“The Crowdfund Bootcamp offers entrepreneurs a step by step programme where business owners who are time poor can focus on doing the bits they already have the skills to do and we can provide the support in the areas they need it the most.

“It’s underpinned by TribeFirst’s proven process, which has helped nearly 50 companies to successfully raise with the industry’s highest success rate of over 90 per cent, and Grant Thornton’s market leading expertise in financial modelling and company valuations - the two elements of a campaign that typically keep most founders up all night.”

The first bootcamp will take place at Grant Thornton’s offices in London’s Finsbury Square on November 19-23. Read more like this
