Cheryl Downing will lead the discussion about crowdfunding and will share the tips for crowdfunding your project. This is a round-table discussion so please bring your experience and questions.
The other attendees will all be early stage technology entrepreneurs, it will be a chance to compare notes on operational, development, and business issues with peers.
Cheryl will share the key factors in determing whether crowdfunding can (and should) be successfully used to fund your product development or project. Unbeknownst to many, crowdfunding is less about creating a campaign page and much more about marketing and promotion. Making the decision whether crowdfunding is the right path for your product or business is critical to making the best use of your time as an entrepreneur.
