Crowd Funding

This course has no current classes. Please join the waiting list.

Harness the power of social media to raise money to support your project.

  • Crowd funding – also known as ‘crowd financing’ or ‘equity crowd funding’- allows people (organization or individuals) to raise money to support an initiative or project. In short, you develop an idea, set an amount you need to raise, post it up on a crowd funding online platform. You will also set a time limit to raise the funds, set rewards for those who invest in your idea and spread the word to as many potential investors as possible. If the target amount is not raised within the time limit then the project does not go ahead. This workshop is perfect for those involved in attaining alternate funding for their start-up’s or small to medium enterprises.
