Announcing winners of #CFNorthLDN

……But what is #CFNorthLDN?

At Phundee we are all about empowering entertainment and art. One of our core values is to help creatives and make their dreams come true.

We do this through our competitions. Last month we ran a competition with The Camden Roundhouse to find some of the hottest projects from North London. As part of the competition the winners enter Phundee’s incubator programme. Over 9 weeks we train the winners in various topics such as Profiling, Social Media, How to create fantastic rewards and many more topics. All are designed so that our winners have the best chance to raise finance for their incredible projects.

Let’s take a look at some of our winners and what category they fit in.
