Bertie Herrtage is the founder of The Crowdfunding Coach, supporting the successful development of donation and rewards based crowdfunding and match funding for charities and voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations. He promotes crowdfunding education across the UK and abroad; working with councils, accelerator programmes and social sector organisations.
Bertie was the Senior Coach at Crowdfunder UK for 5 years and is the author of the crowdfunded magazine Crowdfunder Stories and director of its supporting 10-part YouTube series.
Bertie has coached over 900 crowdfunding campaigns, raising over £10 Million between them.
Within the Third Sector, crowdfunding is one of the most exciting and progressive forms of finance for charities and social enterprises.
Through crowdfunding, increasingly more and more 'match funding' opportunities are being made available from corporates, trusts and local authorities to support the development of these organisations and fill the funding gap experienced by so many.
Bertie from The Crowdfunding Coach offers consultancy for these organisations and can advise on the development of a successful crowdfunding campaign and application to suitable match funding opportunities.
