Crowdfunding is one of the newest and most innovative forms of funding for businesses today. It is an area with huge potential for growth of those businesses that access the interest and imagination of “the crowd”.
Crowdfunding is an avenue for entrepreneurs, start-ups and SMBs to solicit working capital from non-accredited investors. Many investors in “the crowd” will be from family, friends, Angels and Venture groups, pre-existing networks, mentors, and former colleagues.
As an attendee you will:
- Learn about the dramatic growth of the Crowdfunding market
- How to promote value and visibility for your idea or solution
- Develop an extensive understanding of the most effective ways to achieve Crowdfunding goals
- Learn the fundamental elements of an effective Social Media marketing campaign to support your goals
- Learn about the legal, legislative, financial and compliance aspects of Crowdfunding
- Learn about Crowdfunding business practices and insights from Canadian success stories
- Prepare to network your way to a successful campaign
