Victoria Bennett

A strategic marketer by training, she has over 25 years marketing experience, and has worked on many major brands, including Ariel/Tide, Pampers, ENMAX and TD. She was a co-founder of an oil and gas service company that had a successful exit to Schlumberger. Her startup and marketing experience helps her support companies raising capital in North America and Europe.

Victoria loves the democratization of capital that comes with crowdfunding, allowing businesses access to capital and allowing the population access to invest in private companies. She ran her first successful crowdfund campaign over nine years ago, a long time in crowdfunding years. As an Ambassador for the National Crowdfunding and Fintech Association, she has sought to raise awareness of crowdfunding. She is regularly called upon to speak on crowdfunding, most notably at the Global Crowdfunding Conference on women in crowdfunding. Working with the Impact Hub in Calgary, she launched The Crowdfunding Hub in 2019 to provide education and self-service tools for all types of crowdfunding, from donations and rewards to equity. Recently awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee Medal for her support of startups, crowdfunding and community. In 2022, she expanded The Crowdfunding Hub to offer a Crowdfunding for Authors course to support authors raise the funds to professionally launch their books.
