Zoom call

Zoom call - online/phone (all welcome)

Are you interested in learning more about a novel method of raising funds for your healthcare project – because of a gap in funding?

Crowdfunding could be the answer you need.

As well as the financial benefits, it can also offer other less tangible – yet potentially highly valuable – gains because of the large and engaged group of supporters a crowdfunding campaign can bring together.

Crowdfunding expert Alex Watson (Natural Capital Partners) will share the hows and whys of crowdfunding – along with the success factors and common challenges.

Alex has guided and developed successful crowdfunding campaigns on everything from wellbeing service Sunday Assembly to water purification devices to the local food movement Incredible Edible.

This Zoom call will offer an opportunity ask questions – and will leave you knowing whether crowdfunding is a good fit for your health and care improvement project, or not. The next steps will be explained, for those who are keen to try it.

This call is open to Q members, and others with an interest in crowd-funding.
