Crowdfunding is a powerful channel through which people and causes can build local and global communities of committed supporters who share a common purpose. For crowdfunding in Africa – It’s the same, but different. In our session we’ll be exploring localisation strategies that have worked in building networks of funding supporters in Africa through crowdfunding. Using examples of Africa-based causes, we’ll be talking through what was behind their fundraising successes and discussing some of the challenges particular to their local context.
- Organisations and individuals who require funding to achieve their impact goals
- Specifically, those who’s causes are likely to be supported by a network of people rather than single large donors
- Those who are wanting to develop a community of long-term supporters of the work they do
- Individuals who would like to support causes they believe in through activating their own individual communities.
- Case studies of people & organisations that got it right
- What to do to maximise potential success in a crowdfunding campaign
- What not to do.
