Crowd Funding in Real Time Event

Funding target

£ 1,000

Start date: 23/2/2015

ABOUT Crowd Funding in Real Time Event

What is the Project?

The aim of this crowd fund is to encourage young and old to share their ideas with the world!

We're hosting an event at Reading University in conjunction with Reading University's Business Society, entitled Crowd Funding in Real Time.

10 students / business people will present to the crowd.  The crowd will vote for their favourite ideas and 5 WINNERS will be rewarded with an EXPO stand at the Thames Valley EXPO, Green Park, Reading on the 19th March.

The proceeds of this crowd fund will be shared equally with the 5 winners to firstly pay for their EXPO stands and secondly to be used as they choose to progress their ideas.

What do we Need?

We need to pay for 5 EXPO stands.  Each is valued at £275 each.  The organisers are subsidizing them by £50. Making them £225 each. Hence the target of £1000 to break the back of this cost.

We'd also like to produce a publication for the day.  This can then be used by those that took part as evidence of their involvement.

Please help us to make this a great day to remember.

Thank you.
