Why crowdfund?

Raise funds to make your idea happen

When people come together, great things happen

If you are a community group, a business, a charity, a social enterprise, a sports club, or a person with the spark of an idea that you want to make happen, then we can help you fund it.

We have worked with thousands of people to raise millions of pounds with the power of the Crowd.

We’ve learned a lot about how to prepare, build, create and fund successful crowdfunding projects.

When people come together, great things happen because crowdfunding is about more than just raising funds. 

It’s about getting validation for your idea, creating brand awareness, growing your audience and making the most of the brilliant opportunities that arise while your campaign is running.

Get your idea straight. Be original, bold and current.

When you're live your supporters will pledge small amounts of money in return for great rewards or just donations and help you hit your target.
