Building a team

Think about your strengths and weaknesses

Are there any gaps in your own skillset that need to be filled?

It’s a good idea to share the load when running a Crowdfunder project and find people to help with specific tasks. It can sometimes feel like a lot of work for one person to do alone, so delegating can free up more of your time to focus on driving the project forward. 

Think about the skills that you need and consider anyone you know who has experience or expertise in that area. The core team behind all great Crowdfunder projects is usually made up of two to five key people, so think about who you want on board and start those conversations.

And make sure you download our guides further down this page, produced by our crowdfunding experts to help you with planning, creating and running your project.

It's a good idea to have someone in your team who is a great networker, knows lots of people and isn't shy about talking to new people too.
