Company hopes to raise £1m for British ideas and innovation
Indiegogo, the world’s largest crowdfunding platform, has launched the inaugural Go Crowdfund Britain campaign.

The initiative hopes to be the catalyst for £1m worth of investment into Britain’s best ideas, coolest inventions, and brightest young businesses.

It doesn’t matter if that’s 1000 campaigns of £1,000, 10 campaigns of £100,000, or one campaign of £1,000,000.

‘Go Crowdfund Britain’ begins today with a nationwide crowdfunding tour which will visit 10 UK cities over three weeks.

Media Partner
Tech City News is proud announce we will be media partner for the Go Crowndfund Britain campaign.

Our presenter and Indiegogo UK Marketing and Community Manager Anastasia Emmanuel will report back every week from tour to bring you the latest in The Week in Tech.

The campaigns that raise the most money will also be featured in the December issue of the Tech City News magazine.

A tour of Britain
Starting in Manchester today, the tour will visit Birmingham, Swansea, Bristol, Norwich, Nottingham, Sheffield, Leeds, Newcastle and Edinburgh before finishing in London on July 15th.

You can follow the tour and the 1 Million Pound Challenge through the Go Crowdfund Britain website.

The company will gather individuals, groups and companies with big ambitions and show them how to crowdfund successfully on Indiegogo.

They will be joined by experts and partners who will provide advice, guidance and perks to those Britons who begin their campaigns in 2014.

People are encouraged to sign up to the free masterclasses and be part of the Million Pound Challenge.
