“Phil was instrumental in helping us raise £42,000 for our tech for good platform. We needed help to understand which elements of our work would fit best with crowdfunding and Phil helped us to hone in on the most crowdfund-able project for us and our supporters.
 

It was really helpful to look at who our potential backers would be and how to reach them, that formed the basis of our marketing plan. During the planning phase, we also highlighted several partners who helped us promote the project to new audiences.


It feels great to be supported by hundreds of backers who have helped us to build an amazing new tech resource to help save the lives of those living with heart muscle disease.”
