Raise Impact has delivered an unparalleled level of support for purpose-driven SMEs and entrepreneurs seeking to raise investment via crowdfunding, supporting a total of 29 SMEs in spring 2015.
Impact Hub Westminster partnered with the UK Crowdfunding Association, Westminster City Council and Capital Enterprise to enable Raise Impact participants to work with the most brilliant, skilled minds on the UK crowdfunding scene. The programme developed participants’ understanding across the campaign lifecycle, on key areas including the crowdfunding offer, campaign execution and life post-campaign. In addition, campaign-ready SMEs received one-to-one expert support in essential areas such as video production and business mentoring.
Raise Impact will support one more cohort in late 2015, and we expect to continue running this programme in 2016 and beyond.
