Deep Impact III - Sheffield 2014: REBOOTING: Innovation, Venture Creation, Entrepreneurship
Not only is Crowdfunding growing at an unprecedented rate, across the UK and the world, it's also revitalising and reshaping entrepreneurship, innovation and venture creation.
Crowdfunding, itself probably the most impactful innovation of the 21st century so far, has released a new wave of innovation across a wide range of areas from film and the arts to health and technology. By supporting innovators and entrepreneurs in ways never before possible it is opening new channels for support and funding creating new possibilities. Valuable ideas that would previously have died on the steps of the lab are taking flight - some will change the world, some already have.
Crowdfunding is re-engineering the entrepreneur's journey, opening and funding new avenues of development and changing the way investments are made and ventures created.
Deep Impact 3 will reveal and explore what is happening, how investors are now seeking and competing for Crowdfunded ventures, how ventures are accelerating their growth, blossoming sooner and developing faster, supporting innovation in ways never before seen.
Leaders in the field from across the crowdfunding ecosystem including platforms, VC and Angel investors, entrepreneurs and academics will share cutting edge insights into how to really ride the Crowdfunding wave, leveraging it to greatest effect and combine it to get the best out of both new and old - launch and grow innovative ventures and get the right kind of investment on your own terms.
In 2014 Crowdfunding is already making a Deep Impact on innovation, entrepreneurship and the way that ventures are created and grown - come and find out how, from the leaders in the field.
