£5,000 for 10 amazing startups via Cavendish Crowd

Cavendish Crowd - £5000 for 10 amazing startups

We’ve teamed up with Cavendish Enterprise to support startups and growing businesses across England 

The Cavendish Crowd partnership will enable Cavendish’s business support advisors to provide crowdfunding support for startups and established businesses looking to raise finance through three main types of crowdfunding: rewards, equity and community shares.

Alongside high growth startups being offered a ‘once in a business lifetime’ 100 free hours of enterprise support with the Cavendish Start & Grow programme, each of the partners of Cavendish Enterprise will support crowdfunding projects with a share of £5,000 of pledges for the most innovative businesses.

Businesses and startups will be able to directly connect with the Cavendish partners in their area (Bolton Business Ventures, Business West, Enterprise First, National Enterprise Network, NBV Enterprise Solutions, NWES, TEDCO and joint partnership, Enterprise for London) to gain access to bespoke crowdfunding support alongside the opportunity to be featured in the Cavendish Crowd campaign on Crowdfunder.

What our partners say

Kevin Horne, Chair, Cavendish Enterprise: “Crowdfunding is the latest phenomena to hit the finance market and Cavendish has seized the opportunity to offer crowdfunding as an additional support service to new businesses.  The service offers a facility to source the necessary funding required for start-up and growing businesses where it might not have been available through traditional routes.”

Doug Scott, Non-executive Director, Cavendish Enterprise: “Crowdfunding is becoming an increasingly important element in the funding mix for new and small businesses. In bringing together the small business expertise of the Cavendish Enterprise advisers, the specialist knowledge and skills of Crowdfunder and the enthusiasm and dynamism of new entrepreneurs, new, exciting opportunities are going to be developed and exploited across the country. We can’t wait to get started!”

Oli Sleeman, Head of Partnerships at Crowdfunder: “We believe in the power of Great British business and it’s by partnering with powerful networks that we are able to extend our reach into regions across the UK to support even more enterprises on their journey. We are delighted to be working with Cavendish Enterprise to offer up intensive crowdfunding support for businesses at each stage of their growth.”
