Project advice & campaign planning workshops:

For those with clear ideas, we’ve planned a workshop in August to help you refine things, get specialist advice and prepare your campaign. There are 3 options, but you only need to sign up to one session. This session will delve into the detail of delivering your project, ensuring it works for your community and planning your budget. Spacehive will be on hand to show you how to structure your crowdfunding campaign. You will need to download, print and complete the homework via the button below and bring this with you on the day to participate in the session.

Spacehive support webinars:

Throughout August our partner crowdfunding platform, Spacehive, will be running a series of weekly webinars to help you prepare your campaign. These will cover key campaign tactics and FAQs to increase your chance of attracting a pledge from the Mayor.
