In November 2016, Dr Fiona Gray and Dr Cristina Garduño Freeman teamed up with Creative Geelong Inc to raise funds via Research my World, an innovative collaboration between Deakin University and Australia's leading crowdfunding platform Pozible. Our target was $15,000 and our campaign ran for 42 adrenaline-filled days! We received 70 pledges and smashed our target by 143%!
We write about our experience in this article on The Conversation on why we think crowdfunding is a unique way of gaining both social and financial investment in the regeneration of the Geelong region.
The ‘Hubcaps to Creative Hubs’ films were funded by the business communities and people of Geelong. Our crowdfunding campaign on Pozible captured the imagination of the community. We were successful in receiving support from the following organisations, as well as smaller pledges:
- Geelong Connected Communities
- City of Greater Geelong
- Provenance Wines
- Truffle Duck
- Costa Property Group
- David Hamilton Property Group
- Geelong Chamber of Commerce
- Gartland Property
- UBU Gallery
