Three years ago Nesta published research which aimed to profile and explore crowdfunding platforms. We also began to fund and support a group of crowdfunding platforms to grow their services. This took place at a time when the market for crowdfunding was just beginning to develop in the UK. Now, as we are preparing to run the largest ever crowdfunding study with Cambridge University, it seems like a great time to go back and take a look at how these pioneering platforms have grown and developed over the time….when crowdfunding went mainstream.

Meeting with Kieran Daly from FoodCycle I can almost scoop his energy up with a spoon, it’s that palpable. He is clearly talented and has a passion for FoodCycle’s mission to connect unwanted food, spare kitchen space and volunteers to create tasty meals for people in food poverty.

Over the last 18 months Nesta has been backing five ageing ventures and 50+ other ventures to encourage us all to give more of our time, money, assets and resources to others. The challenge now is to find the best recipe to scale the best of these ideas and to get as many as possible onto a street near you.

At Nesta we work increasingly with a number of platforms that aim to combine all the good things about local community networks with the organising power of an online platform. The idea is that through engaging on the two levels, the platform will be able to promote deep engagement in local areas, whilst mobilising many more people and extending networks much faster and further through using a web platform.
