Since the first time the word crowdfunding was used in 2006 by Michel Sullivan many new platforms have risen. Equity crowdfunding alone has grown by almost 300% in the past 2 years only in the UK. Platforms dedicated to non-profits, local and community causes have raised millions of pounds.

However, sidestepping banks or more traditional methods of investing doesn't mean that you can cut corners on the preparations. How can you ensure you bid to the right platform and create a campaign that is not only appealing for the would-be backers or investors but explains your project clearly and generates media interest too?

Join GetSet for Growth for an evening of learning about the wide range of crowdfunding platforms raising money in the UK.
