Last month, crowdfunding platform Tilt shared details about its expansion in the UK. It first surfaced in the country this past July.
The Tilt team revealed:
“Back in July, we nipped across the pond to bring Tilt to the UK for the first time. Now, as we celebrate our three-month anniversary in this green and pleasant land, we’re also celebrating the incredible growth that all your tilting has brought us.”
Tilt’s UK stats revealed the following:
- In the UK, the average tilt collects £170 with the help of at least 5 contributors.
- We’re growing 41% month-over-month on university campuses globally.
The “top Tilts” so far include:
- Students at St. Andrews used Tilt to organise dinner tables, tickets and swag to fundraise over £20,000 for their annual, gloriously eccentric, Welly Ball (yup, black tie and wellies) in support of the Charlie Waller Memorial Trust.
- The community of Huddersfield pooled £400 together with the help of 32 contributors to buy tents for refugees in Calais.
- Duedil employee Shaun is whipping his (somewhat cooperative) office into shape by having them all chip in on Tilt to buy office yoga mats.
- Nottingham Jewish Society sold over 900 tickets for their annual knees-up, Booze For Jews.
- Tom Blackwood, the kind of student we all wish we’d either been or befriended at uni, tilted a post-exams holiday rental with 20 friends in the South of France.
- The Sheffield Medics Rugby team uses Tilt weekly to collect money for petrol and organise team socials.
The platform then revealed in honor of its three-month milestone in the UK, it is contributing £10 to pay any tilt from now until 2016 using the promo code: mistletoe.
