Crowd funding: What to Know Before Starting a Campaign

Crowd funding is growing in popularity as a method for raising capital, promoting products or services, and attracting new customers.

In a few short years, the amount of pledges and money raised through crowd funding has surpassed the $2 billion mark in the United States and abroad.  However, while a few high profile crowd funding projects have piqued the public’s interest from boardrooms to classrooms the reality is that a majority of crowd funding projects never achieve their funding goals and in many cases leave project creators confused and disillusioned.

So what separates the successful crowd funding projects from those that have sent creators back to the drawing board?

In this workshop, we introduce business owners and entrepreneurs to the crowd funding phenomenon and provide a detailed road map for deciding if crowd funding is right for your business or idea.

Topics covered:

  • Why crowd funding?
  • Selecting a platform
  • Crowd funding models
  • Creating successful campaigns
  • Best practices and strategies
  • Taking the next steps by Bending the Curve™

At the conclusion of this workshop participants will have gained a thorough understanding of how this strategic business and funding model has changed the way companies view their businesses, the competitive landscape and their customers.

This is an interactive workshop.  All attendees are encouraged to participate and to collaborate with others throughout the session. During this workshop you will have the opportunity to meet and network with other local entrepreneurs and business people.
