In 2014, whilst studying entrepreneurship at university I co-founded CrowdReach, the UK's first crowdfunding marketing agency. Since then, my team and I have worked on over 150 Kickstarter/Indiegogo campaigns rasing in excess of $20m. In 2017, CrowdReach was recognised as one of the 50 most disruptive companies in the UK (https://realbusiness.co.uk/50-most-disruptive-uk-companies-2017).
Individually, I am a keen supporter of the industry and take every opportunity to educate myself and share my experiences. This led me to be invited to join the Crowdfunding all-party parliamentary group at the houses of parliament and be recognised as a young achiever by Crowdsourcing Week.
Identifying a lack of practical research in the industry, I created www.crowdfundingchampions.com a free resource for entrepreneurs to learn from successful crowdfunding campaigns. So far I have created two reports on Kicktarter/Indiegogo and will be launching a further report on equity crowdfunding in January.
I hope my passion and boldness have shone through in my application. Thank you for your consideration.
Happy new year!
