FVL LEADER/Crowdfunder UK

FVL LEADER have just embarked on a new project with Crowdfunder UK to coach and mentor community groups and businesses in the rural area who are thinking of undertaking Crowdfunding campaigns.  It is called Crowdfund Scotland (it includes other LEADER areas too).

The project has just started and a first workshop was held in January in Stirling. There will be more workshops in the next 18 months. The workshops are suitable for anyone who wants to find out more about this method of fundraising and the potential uses for local projects. The workshops will explore match funding available for projects in Stirling, and beyond, via Crowdfunder and how you can access this.

Topics to be covered:

  • What is crowdfunding?
  • Introducing Crowdfund Scotland
  • What are the benefits of crowdfunding?
  • What makes a good crowdfunding project?
  • Three steps to success
  • Accessing advice and support
