So you’ve launched a startup. You’ve developed a product — something you think is pretty cool and something you think others will find cool as well. Maybe you’ve talked with some of those people, and maybe they’re telling you they can’t wait to check out your product. You’ve developed a prototype, and you’re ready to take the next step.
In order to move forward, though, you need money. Maybe it’s $10,000 or maybe it’s $100,000, but you decide crowdfunding is the way to go. After all, it’s an increasingly popular and effective way to raise the money you need.
But what do you know about setting rewards for funders? What about the aspects of a compelling pitch video? Do you have a well-developed strategy for how you’ll use social media callouts during the campaign?
Michael Barbera, a strategy consultant, angel investor and business plan writer, can help you find the answers to these questions, and more, during his talk on Crowdfunding 101. The event, which will be held Oct. 20 at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library, will cover a wide range of topics from concept to conclusion of your crowdfunding campaign.
