Earlier this week, CrowdfunderUK’s brand communications manager, Jess Ratty, was chosen to appear at the TEDxBristol 2015 held at Bristol’s Colston Hall. She shared her thoughts about all things crowdfunding.
The crowdfunding platform noted that the sold out event was set to be one of the largest in the UK this year, with over 1,800 people attending.
Prior the event, Ratty stated:
“I’m so excited to be speaking about crowdfunding at TEDxBristol – I’ve been inspired by thousands of our Crowdfunder community project owners and it’s a real honour to share their stories, and truly show what’s possible with the power of the crowd. Bristol itself has the ambition to raise over £1M for crowdfunding projects and already has such a reputation for innovation – it’s the perfect place to chat about the future of funding.”
Curator Mel Rodrigues added:
“For me Bristol is the city of ideas, so we wanted to created a TEDx event that packed a punch and showcased our both our best innovations and our quiet heroes, intrepid trailblazers and unapologetic agitators. We’ve unearthed this region’s ordinary people doing extraordinary things, to make our futures better than we dare dream, hence the theme ‘Great Expectations.'”
