The Baltic Triangle, Liverpool; an internationally recognised area of creativity and high growth is supporting its collective ambition for further development with the launch of a new crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. Backed by resident businesses and tenants, the campaign aims to significantly develop the district and further position it as rivalling areas similar to the Meatpacking District in New York, Shoreditch and parts of East Berlin.
The aim – for the Baltic Triangle to grow and be as much a place to visit as a place to work; where international visitors travel to experience a place that is admired for it’s Community & Creativity!
To view the campaign, visit Indiegogo here.
The Baltic Triangle is renowned as a district of vision, recognised on an international scale for its drive to build a strong commercial and tourist destination. The area has been led by the Baltic Triangle CIC and a community of businesses who have managed to develop and deliver a vision and plan, benefiting the Liverpool start-up and small business scene.
The community’s drive for continuous improvement has now highlighted opportunities which must be taken in order for the Baltic Triangle to move closer towards its vision. Both tenants and the district’s board of directors identified the need for stronger infrastructure and transport, increased green space & street animation, more festivals & events and exclusive area branded signage. In the aim to raise funds the Baltic has turned to the crowd.
Mark Lawler and Simon Rhodes, Co-chair’s of the Baltic Triangle Area CIC agree: ‘Baltic Triangle is a place of community, a place where we support and encourage the growth of businesses and start-up success. It’s a place of art and music and amazing people. It’s our home and it’s our future. Our relationships with everyone both within and outside of the Baltic Triangle have always been strong and based on mutual support, so turning to our local crowd to achieve the next phase in our growth seemed like the most logical step.’
Launched on Indiegogo, the crowdfunding campaign asks stakeholders, supporters, tenants and fans & visitors of the area to contribute towards their £40,000 goal. In return, supporters have the opportunity to become part of the Baltic story, helping build the area. Along with having the opportunity to benefit from a range of specially selected perks created by both the area and businesses based within it.
Following a number of successful crowdfunding stories including Home Baked, Friends of the Flyover, The Bagelry and the Bombed out Church, Liverpool is fast becoming a hub for harnessing community and bringing projects to life.
The crowdfunding campaign runs until the 4th June 2016, where anyone can pledge their support for this cause in a safe and secure way.
