We are all aware of Crowdfunding but do we really understand how our businesses can benefit from it? At our September breakfast we see the return of Crowfunding expert Tim Wright co founder and Director of twintangibles a UK based management consultancy that helps organisations create value through accessing the crowd economy.

Crowdfunding and crowdsourcing have transformed the way that SMEs can innovate, create value, and engage with their audiences. Now policymakers, civic bodies and governments are getting in on the act as they use crowd empowered approaches to help shape the future of society and the economy and increasingly see the crowd as an asset.

This has significant implications for us as citizens and creates opportunities for us as entrepreneurs because we are all part of the crowd.

Ahead of the publication of a new book ‘Crowdassets’ Co-author Tim will share some of the international insights and some of the best examples of crowd formed policy and practice.

  • Learn what this means for you as a citizen and as an entrepreneur.
  • Understand the drivers influencing the thinking of these civic and governmental bodies.
  • Discover what opportunities this can present to you and how you can engage with them.
  • Consider the skills and competencies required to thrive in this changing environment.
  • Explore the possibilities of shaping this development to your own benefit.

Tim has worked with and helped many organisations from EZI to McKinsey & Co as well as recently being appointed to member of the Board of the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service. With this depth of experience and knowledge I’m sure we can all benefit from his insight into crowdfunding and crowdsourcing.
