We are delighted to welcome Amanda Boyle, Founder and CEO of Bloom VC, the UK's first crowdfunding platform of its kind.
She will talk about how, when and why to use crowdfunding and how crowdfunding can be used as a promotional tool.
"Successful crowdfunding campaigns are key micro-examples of creatively using social media and viral marketing techniques, by way of promotional videos and other dynamic content, which is then spread among niche communities via social networks." [Econsultancy]
