Helping the Bath Spa community get their projects off the ground.
Launch Pad is Bath Spa University’s crowdfunding website. We’ve created Launch Pad to give students and staff a platform to launch their creative or academic projects and business ideas, and to give alumni and friends of the University the opportunity to support projects and ideas that interest them.
How it works
In a nutshell: Create a Launch Pad user log-in and use the website to build and host your project. You’ll promote the project, provide updates and encourage people’s support by offering rewards. If you meet your funding minimum (or exceed it!) by your deadline, the money is yours.
If the project doesn’t reach the minimum target, no money changes hands.
Unlike other crowdfunding platforms (e.g. Kickstarter), there are no fees, so every penny raised goes towards the project.
Help and Support
The Launch Pad team is available to answer questions and offer feedback and advice about a project before it goes live on the website. We’re also happy to meet up with you or have a chat on the phone about your project - just drop us an email and we’ll get back to you asap!
Once we’ve published your project, we’ll give you a hand with promotion by sharing it on our social media channels. If you have any specific marketing materials such as images or a video, we can like, share and retweet that too! It is ultimately up to you (and any friends you recruit) to promote the project and raise the funds, but we’re always here to help - even if you just need someone to cheer you on a bit!
