Recent statistics show that Crowdfunding is estimated to have created approximately 270,000 jobs world wide and injected more than $65 billion into the global economy, proving that this relatively new method of raising capital is definitely here to stay.
When utilized correctly crowdfunding platforms provide the perfect opportunity for entrepreneurs to launch new products, fund innovative ideas and develop a global community in support of their business.
Unfortunately, it isn’t all rainbows and success. According to statistics provided by some of the most well-known crowdfunding platforms in North America, on average only 44% of campaigns succeed in reaching their funding goal.
In this afternoon workshop you will learn:
• The difference between rewards-based crowdfunding, fundraising & equity crowdfunding.
• Why some campaigns fail and others succeed.
• Strategies for planning and launching a successful rewards-based campaign.
• How to use Facebook Ads to build your social media following and promote your campaign.
If you are looking to create a rewards based crowdfunding campaign, want to learn more about the world of crowdfunding or determine if this is the right avenue for your business to raise capital, then you cannot miss this workshop.
★ Keynote Speaker for First Crowdfunding Success Workshop
The keynote speaker for the first crowdfunding workshop is Daryl Hatton, CEO of Fundrazr. Founded in 2008, Fundrazr was originally created to be a Facebook app for users to crowdfund money over Facebook. Since then, users are able to log in to FundRazr using several other platforms. FundRazr is passionate about providing an alternative funding source for startups, charities, and personal causes with total crowdfunding for over $91 million.
Hatton says, “As Director of the National Crowdfunding Association of Canada, he has been involved since the beginning of various crowdfunding platforms and can speak about the differences, as well as benefits for each.
