Solstice, the Kinetic Clock is fully funded!

As mentors on the Central Research Laboratory’s Accelerator Programme we’ve helped many projects grow a community and launch their crowdfunding campaigns. The latest project to be successfully funded was for Solstice, a kinetic clock that turns passing hours into art.

Alongside our mentorship we also worked on their PR campaign, reaching press and influencers throughout the world of design and tech. Mashable, Colossal, Core77, Mental Floss and Lost At E Minor as well as many others shared their support for the mesmerising Solstice clock, contributing to it being fully funded in just 2 days!

The project is still going strong and excitingly almost 200% funded. If you’re interested in a very unique and beautifully designed timepiece then head over to Kickstarter.

Mentor Pilot Programme with Creative Scotland

We're excited to share about Crowdfunding Creativity! In partnership with Creative Scotland we will be delivering a mentoring programme to help artists, makers, designers and creatives crowdfund their projects.

The programme aims to provide people who are working in the creative industries in Scotland with the skills and knowledge to develop their own successful crowdfunding campaigns. Over the course of the programme, those selected to take part will learn not only how to develop their crowdfunding campaign but also gain key skills to help them support their creative practice.

In addition, the selected projects will benefit from access to 25% match-funding from Creative Scotland.

We're looking forward to working with talented creatives and helping to bring their ideas to life. If you want to apply or find out more visit Creative Scotland (Applications close 2 July 2018)
