The journey starts here

It’s half past six on a Friday evening, the rain’s pelting down outside the Trampery and is playing me Italian music from the 1930s. Two hours ago we went live with this website, explaining how crowdfunding works and why Trampoline’s chosen this route instead of raising money from venture capital firms.

This is just a “soft launch” so Trampoline’s existing shareholders can look at the site. It’s not linked from anywhere else and we haven’t started promoting it. Nonetheless this marks the beginning of the process we’ve been preparing for several weeks and it’s an exciting moment.

Next week the adventure really starts.

Crowdfunding is an alternative approach to raising finance. It’s been developed over the last decade, principally in the film and music industries. Unlike traditional models which rely on large contributions one or two institutions crowdfunding is based on raising small sums from many number of people, who are typically linked by social networks or shared interests.
