6:00 PM - York

Crowdfunding is big business right now and can help businesses grow quickly, but how do you make it work?

Last year, York based marketing agency - The Rainbow Mash - joined forces with craft brewery Brew York, to help them start a beer revolution.

The ‘Brew York (R)evolution’ crowdfunding campaign raised £56k in 21 days to make York’s biggest craft beer venue a reality. That’s 41% more than the initial £40k target. The campaign was all about creating a community of beer lovers who said ‘no’ to bland, boring beer and a big ‘yes’ to weird and wonderful brews.

In this talk from Sarah Cowl, Marketing Director of The Rainbow Mash, you’ll find out what makes a successful crowdfunding campaign and why starting a revolution was the right thing for Brew York to do.

You’ll also get to see the recently extended Brew York with its beer hall serving street food and hoptails (that’s beer + cocktails = hoptails).
