Click, the University of Essex’s innovative crowdfunding platform, has been honoured at the Heist Awards 2017.
Click is now one of the most prolific higher education crowdfunding platforms in the world. Since it launched, 130 student groups have launched projects. Of those groups, 99% hit their fundraising targets.
From new business start-ups like a mobile bar and apps that help disabled people use smartphones and help students manage mental health, to sports teams, conferences, and new plays at the Edinburgh Fringe, Click has helped students turn their ideas into reality.
The Heist Awards celebrate the excellence and innovation of everyone involved in education marketing and Click won the Best Alumni, Development or Fundraising Initiative category.
