I was really pleased to be asked to speak at the launch of the Angus crowd funding portal in Montrose this week. Most people have come across the idea these days – if you haven’t see this website –
Here in Angus colleagues in economic development have worked hard to develop a crowd funding portal for Angus with a plan to enable £100,000 to be raised locally this year. The scheme can help individuals, organisations, community groups and small business. The reach is global potentially as it’s on the web, and evidence shows that crowd funded projects really do attract support from all over the world.
See this for a local example of how is works….
