Crowdfunding for Entrepreneurs
The internet has changed the way entrepreneurs, small business owners, nonprofits, and charitable organizations raise money. This presentation will explore crowdfunding—fundraising by gathering small amounts of money from large numbers of people—online. You’ll learn the fundamentals of using a crowdfunding campaign to raise money as well as how to search for and contribute to other people’s campaigns. The presentation will also discuss three popular crowdfunding platforms: GoFundMe, Kick-starter, and Indiegogo.
