Make it British Masterclass - Jack Millington

About this Masterclass

Back in 2017 when Billy Tannery first launched, the founders made the decision to use the power of crowdfunding, not only to fund the early stages of business but to also test the response to their brand and their first range of products. After launching their campaign on Indiegogo, they raised 104% of their target goal.

Jack Millington, the founder of Billy Tannery, will be covering in this masterclass just how you can use crowdfunding to help set up your own micro-manufacturing business. He discusses:

  • Why Billy Tannery chose to use crowdfunding
  • Their launch on Kickstarter
  • Using Indiegogo to fund their relocation
  • Key learnings from two campaigns

About Jack Millington and Billy Tannery

Despite growing up on a farm, Jack spent his early career in London working in marketing. After discovering the huge number of British goatskins going to waste, he partnered with childhood friend Rory Harker to start Billy Tannery. Jack’s goal is to bring a fresh approach to the UK leather industry and help create a vibrant future for responsibly produced, traceable leather.

In 2016, building on centuries of local leather knowledge Jack and Rory transformed a farm building in the Midlands into their own small-batch tannery – the first to be built in this country for well over 50 years.

Their collection of handmade leather goods is entirely made in England to celebrate this exceptional material.
