How, when and why to use crowdfunding - A discussion with Bloom VC

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]

Bloom VC (Venture Catalyst) provides alternative access to funding for startups, businesses, community projects and social enterprises. 

Bloom is the first crowdfunding platform of its kind in the UK, enabling anyone with an idea, anywhere in the world, to reach out and receive donations from across the globe, using their social networks.

There will be a chance for networking and drinks following the talk with beer and wine sponsored by Harviestoun and The Edinburgh Business School

In return for sponsorship please provide your email address which Harvieston will use to send you emails about their awesome beer (you can unsubscribe at any time, but I doubt you would!)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
