Risk Management Checklist
This resource is provided by Coleby Consulting as a resource and template for your risk management plan.
Pozible is an online crowdfunding platform and community developed for artists and all creatively minded people. With Pozible anyone can raise funds for a project, realise their aspirations and make great things possible. Project creators pitch their ideas to a worldwide audience and, if anyone likes the idea, they can support it by pledging money to the creators’ project. In return for support, the project creators will offer rewards depending on the level of funding. This makes Pozible a unique and different experience to the normal funding process.
