Crowdfunding is an increasingly popular and alternative source of financing new products, services, ventures and social projects. Engaging the interest of potential donors is key to unlocking the key to crowdfunding. Dr Rana Tassabehji will be talking about crowdfunding and how the Entrepreneurship & Innovation group at the University of Bradford School of Management is pioneering the use of Crowdfunding in their teaching to give budding student entrepreneurs the opportunity to convert their classroom ideas into real world ventures. We have opportunities for local businesses to work with our Masters students to explore how to access this alternative form of funding.
