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 that interest them.
How it works
Users create a Launch Pad log-in and use the website to build and host their project. They promote the project, provide updates and encourage people’s support by offering rewards. If they meet their funding minimum (or exceed it!) by their deadline, the money is theirs.
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
We offer help and support to all Launch Pad users by giving feedback and advice as they develop and build their project page. We’ll also give them a hand with promotion by sharing their project on our social media channels.
Launch Pad hosts a diverse range of projects, from art installations to film productions, research, sport competitions and more. Choosing to help our students through crowdfunding - whether by donating or simply sharing the project - not only lets you support activities that mean something to you, but also empowers students to raise their own funds and manage a project.
