Lensational was the first social enterprise funded on HelpingB, the world’s first crowdfunding platform for young social entrepreneurs, and we hit 125% of our target.
Tonight, we shared our experience of online #crowdfunding to aspiring entrepreneurs at Impact Hub Westminster.
Our co-founder Bonnie shared our organisation’s key takeaways from the campaign: nurture donor relationships (takes at least 18 months to materialise), get people to pledge their donations before their campaign and donate in the first 3 hours, and prepare press releases to contact the press.
But looking back, the best thing that resulted from the campaign is probably the friendship between Bonnie and Sheeza, the founder of HelpingB, that leads both of our organisations to the next level! #womenentrepreneurs
