Virgin StartUp launches accelerator for equity crowdfunding

Virgin StartUp has announced CrowdBoost, an accelerator for entrepreneurs who want to raise funds through an equity crowdfunding campaign.

The seven-week accelerator will cover everything you need to know about running an equity crowdfunding campaign. You’ll receive guidance to get everything set up and ready to go. By the end of the seven weeks you’ll understand how to find and attract investors, create an engaging pitch video, create releases that will excite the media and build an effective marketing strategy.

CrowdBoost from Virgin StartUp

CrowdBoost has been developed for ambitious entrepreneurs looking to leverage the power of the crowd to raise funds, raise awareness and build a tribe of customers who are emotionally and financially invested in the business.

Virgin StartUp is looking for entrepreneurs who want to raise at least £100k and already have a proven concept that is generating traction and a good following. If that sounds like you, head to the Virgin StartUp website to find out more and apply now for CrowdBoost, which starts on January 30th.

If you’re not planning a crowdfunding campaign for your business, check out Virgin StartUp’s popular Doing Business with Big Business event, which is on February 6th and will help you to understand how to get your products on the shelves of major retailers. Buy tickets for this event on Eventbrite.
