Crowdfund Wolves will be running a funding round to help you turn your idea into a reality. Participating in the funding round will enhance awareness locally of your crowdfunding project and increase the likelihood of support from the crowd.
If you’d like to be considered as part of this funding round for publicity and potential pledges for your project idea then please follow the steps below:
1. Expression of Interest
Complete our expression of interest form at your earliest convenience to inform us of your project idea and knowledge of crowdfunding. A member of the team will be in touch to provide you with the necessary information and support you may need to help get your project started.
To enable the team to help with any queries you may have and to ensure you can get your project page developed, the earlier you are able to express your interest in running a project the better!
2. Create your project on Spacehive and pitch it to Crowdfund Wolves fund
Create your online project page and you will automatically be matched to Crowdfund Wolves. Remember your page is the place to showcase your project to attract potential pledges. Ask for support and feedback to make your page the best it can be!
Projects that would like to be included in this funding round must have their online page completed by Wednesday 18th September.
3. Submit your project for verification
The costs and necessary permissions on your page will be verified by an independent verifier, Locality, to enable you to begin campaigning shortly afterwards.
4. Start crowdfunding
Run your crowdfunding campaign between September and December to be considered in this funding round by the Council and other funders for a possible pledge. Ensure your campaign has sufficient length to attract support from the crowd to meet your target.
We will consider pledging to projects which, in addition to meeting our funding criteria, demonstrate that there is community backing. So you must begin your crowdfunding campaign and attract as many individual backers as possible. We recommend that backers include their postcode (which they can do when they make their pledge) as that will tell us that this is a project that people want to see happen locally, in their community.
