The Crowdfunding Readiness webinar programme
Crowdfunding has exploded in popularity in recent years and now represents approximately a fifth of all start-up funding worldwide. Unlike angel or VC funding, crowdfunding offers a way to test market demand, raise awareness of your business and attract new customers all while raising the funds you need.
However, despite the growth of crowdfunding, two thirds of crowdfunding campaigns still fail which represents a lack of understanding and common misconceptions on how to raise successfully via crowdfunding.
This webinar programme provides business leaders with an introduction to raising via crowdfunding and covers the fundamental requirements for a successful campaign. Following this programme, you’ll understand whether crowdfunding is right for you and how to prepare for a successful campaign.
There are three webinars in this series followed by the opportunity to book one-on-ones and get tailored crowdfunding advice for your business.
Webinar #2 Preparing for Crowdfunding Success on Kickstarter or Indiegogo
This webinar is for companies considering rewards or donations-based crowdfunding.
• Creating your crowdfunding preparation strategy
• How much does running a rewards campaign cost?
• How do I raise awareness before crowdfunding launch?
• What should I include on my campaign page?
