Crowdfund Solent

Supporting small and micro businesses

Crowdfund Solent supported small and micro businesses, social enterprises and charities as well as the self-employed in the Solent area.

The scheme was open to any business facing challenging trading conditions as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and to those who were able to adapt their model in order to respond to the changing needs of their business or market.

This fund has now been fully allocated, but you can still crowdfund in the Solent area by clicking the button below.
