Crowdfunding platforms - any experience?

Hi all, another random question from me which I hope somebody can help with. We are looking at running a crowdfunder pilot in the coming months and I just wondered if any other funders have any experience of this?

We have a shortlist of Crowdfunder and Spacehive as potential partners to run this with; the latter of which has an interesting fund finder tool which some of you may or may not have used.

We are very much in the early stages of all of this and a big part of it is that we want to become more informed to potentially encourage our applicants down this route in the future. Any input appreciated! Many thanks.

Hi all, just to provide an update on this, after a few months, we have finally managed to launch our Pilot; further details in the links below:

Do let me know if anyone has any questions about my experiences with it so far, and please do pass on to other funders you may come across who are considering crowdfunding!
