CrowdfundUK is Anne Strachan, a trainer and fundraiser for over 20 years. I run innovative training and personalised support for business, social and creative enterprises on alternative finance including crowdfunding.
I am currently working for Manchester City Council to support the third sector in developing and running crowdfunding campaigns.
I am an Associate Partner with BAFI (Business Angels Finance International LLP) to help start-ups and SMEs raise structured debt or equity finance through crowdfunding. I was an approved coach with GrowthAccelerator, in the Access to Finance area, which helped high growth business achieve their potential. I worked with high growth businesses including social enterprises across the UK.
New projects in 2016 include developing a major pilot programme with Natural England to run a series of crowdfunding campaigns for projects in local nature reserves.
