Harnessing the Untapped Potential for Businesses, Products, Growth & Startups

Beyond the Alchemy:

Going beyond the alchemy we've harnessed the latest research, and data from 500,000 crowdfunds, to understand the "chemical reactions" that power this engine of change, and created a new framework and methodology to harness those reactions, alone and in combination with other funding models, creating new routes for funding.

WHY and HOW it Works - And What YOU CAN Do!

When you're told WHAT (and what not) to do you can do it, until something unexpected happens, or goes awry. If you know WHY and HOW it work - you can combine, plan, plot and re-plot your path confident you have the flexibility to grasp new opportunities and deal with 'events'.

Until now most crowdfunding 'wisdom' has been little more than hints, tips and folk-wisdom. Taking an evidence-driven analytical approach this conference will reveal the key drives and driver and how to harness them, alone and in concert with more traditional funding and finance.

Tickets will be available soon

    Task Force; Commander in Chief, BrewDog plc


    Scottish startup craft brewery BrewDog is now the country's biggest independent brewer having raised in excess of £26m through four rounds of crowdfunding.

    The craft beer anarchist who has amassed more than 46,000 investors across the planet, now exports to 55 countries, run 44 bars and is now establishing a brewing operation in Ohio says it could have sold it's soul to countless devils in order to become the most popular craft brewery in the UK - but instead turned to its community which provided the company with an international army of Equity Punks who have put their money where their mouth is, invested in the business for ~£95 a pop, and become their brand ambassadors, around the world.
