About Chris Buckingham is currently based in Hampshire, in the UK. After graduating from university, he travelled extensively throughout Central Europe, Scandinavia, Canada, the USA and South Africa as Guide and Teacher of English as a Foreign Language. But then something life-changing happened - he discovered crowdsourcing and crowdfunding.
His interest in crowdfunding started when he first discovered peer-to-peer consumer lending and then Kiva.org, a site dedicated to lending money to majority world entrepreneurs. This encouraged him to learn more and soon afterwards, he was helping his first clients create their campaigns.
Today Chris’s time is divided between his research writing.
