Crowdfunding around the planet

We're on an mission to change the world through crowdfunding

Like it always does, it started with a great idea.

The phenomenon of Crowdfunder has taken off in the UK, raising almost £80 million for tens of thousands start-ups, social enterprises and community groups.

To date well over one million Britons have pledged money to our projects and it makes real a difference in communities across the country.

That makes us the UK’s biggest crowdfunding platform.

But our mission is growing and we passionately believe that crowdfunding can bring together communities around the world.

Supporters from more than 150 countries have now backed brilliant ideas in 90 countries on Crowdfunder. And our funding partners operate in over 50 territories around the globe.

As a result Crowdfunder UK has made an incursion into Canada, taking its team of industry experts and famous ‘Accelerator’ programme across the Atlantic Ocean for the first time. And that’s just the start.
