Get Crowdfunded: The Essentials

A structured workshop on how to increase the likelihood of your crowdfunding success by Joe Constanty and Holly Sharp, Co-founders of PURPLE SPREAD 

Crowdfunding has made it easier for entrepreneurs and startups to introduce their products and services to the market. Among the popular crowdfunding websites are Kickstarter and Indiegogo, which has served as a testing ground for budding businessmen to see how consumers will receive their ideas and how well they could handle tricky situations that come with the territory. Unfortunately, not every campaign ends well. As of October 2015, only 36.75% of Kickstarter projects were successfully funded with over 1.73 Billion USD raised.

This workshop aims to help founders, entrepreneurs, and startups increase the likelihood of your campaign’s success. We will be discussing how you can lay the foundation of your crowdfunding journey through branding, storytelling, project preparation and how important it is to create a following before your launch.

In this workshop, you will: 

  • Learn and understand the essential elements of building your brand that is key to your campaign’s success on Kickstarter and Indiegogo
  • Watch, read and analyze top project pages and learn the key elements and imagery that you can apply to future projects
  • Understand the approach of building awareness for a project prior to launch, the broad scope of work and methods that can be applied to your project and help increase the likelihood of its success
  • Get your questions about crowdfunding addressed by the Purple Spread Team by the end of the event

Who should attend?

  • Individuals or Teams who are considering crowdfunding
  • Entrepreneurs who want to understand how crowdfunding works

Armed with an MBA and a ‘say no to me and you will die’ attitude, Holly believes that process, data, and great partners are necessary to take the good ideas to next level greatness.
