If you want to know how to run a crowdfunded Community Share issue what better way than to hear from someone who has done it?
In this episode we speak to Jamie Veitch who was an important participant in the Sheffield Live crowdfunding campaign. This project raised £165,000 through a Community Share issue which is a specific and increasingly popular type of crowdfunding.
Jamie tells us why they chose this approach and some of the challenges and benefits with running this type of campaign.
The campaign was to raise funds for the existing community radio station to move into the TV realm.
