Funding for the MADE entrepreneur

MADE16 delegates have a chance to secure a six-figure investment from five angel investors in a live quick-fire pitching event on stage on the 8th November at the iconic Crucible Theatre, Sheffield.

Working in partnership, MADE and Crowdfunder are offering every delegate the opportunity to raise money, awareness and support for their business from this growing source of funding that harnesses the power of the Crowd to make ideas happen. 

To raise the bar, the five most successful projects will be offered an expert coaching session to prepare for a live pitch for further investment from a panel of five angel investors at MADE. 

There are no limits on the size or type of business that can be successful, so start crowdfunding now.
