2013, part 1 – WE WERE PROUD TO PRESENT :
Debates on Crowdfunding:
A series of exclusive and unique educational events to help you succeed and understand this new financial tool.
Crowdfunding is the new way to fund your startup idea, films and inventions. Last year about $2.7 billion was raised globally via crowdfunding platforms. There are more than 200 crowdfunding platforms in the U.S. alone and over 800 globally. Out of 13 categories listed on Kickstarter, the leading crowdfunding platform, Games had the most money pledged, followed by the Film, Design and Music. 10 percent of the films at Sundance were Kickstarter-funded; 63 Kickstarter-funded films played in more than 1,200 theaters. Overall, thousands of projects have been crowdfunded. But thousands also failed to get funds from the online communities. How does it work and will it work for YOU?
We’ve had a blast at our First Debate in February: Kickstarter, Indiegogo and WhenYouWish – What Would Work For You? with Adam Chapnik (Indiegogo), David Harvilicz (WhenYouWish) and David Raiklen (producer and entrepreneur) as guest speakers and our advisers.
Our Second Debate in March So you Think You Can Crowdfund with Jeffrey Henderson (InvestedIn), Jesse Collver (Satori) and Dan Mapes (Magnet TV) was SOLD OUT!
Our Third Debate in April Crowdfunding of Independent Films and Real-estate – Learn From The Experts was SOLD OUT!
Our Fourth Debate in May Your Crowdfunding Campaign: Marketing and Legal Aspects was SOLD OUT!
2013, part 2 – We are now working hard on our second annual Next Generation Entrepreneurship and Global Crowdfunding Forum which is set to be on November 15th, 2013 at JW Marriott Hotel (Santa Monica).
