This week on the Everyone Funding Startups podcast we spoke to Tim Wright, Director and Co-Founder of Twintangibles. Twintangibles is the organizer behind the Crowdfuture conference in Rome on October 27th 2012.

Tim has worked as a consultant, practitioner and senior manager with a number of global  commercial organisations including Egon Zehnder International and McKinsey & Co. For five years he was part of the executive management team of ITI Scotland – a £500M innovation programme based around a highly collaborative open innovation model.

Crowdfuture is the first conference in Italy dedicated entirely to crowdfunding. With national and international speakers, including GrowVC’s global COO, Markus Lampinen speaking on Crowdfunding as an Asset, Crowdfuture will illustrate some of the best and most successful cases in the short history of crowdfunding, highlighting issues and challenges, dispelling some myths, and offering an insight into the future of this movement.
