the practice of funding a project or venture by raising money from a large
number of people, typically via the Internet, will be the topic of discussion
at a seminar presented by the Incubators at Burlington County College (BCC) on
Tuesday, Sept. 9 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Enterprise Center at BCC, located on
the college’s Mount Laurel campus.
Presented along with Ronald M. Allen, of Managing Change, the seminar will bring together representatives from major crowdfunding platforms like KIVA, Indiegogo and Kickstarter (just three of the 140 platforms to date), who will discuss the elements of a successful crowdfunding campaign. In addition to raising capital, crowdfunding can also help strengthen brand identity, secure publicity, create awareness and connect valuable business contacts.
Registration begins at 5:30 p.m. and the program will start at 6 p.m. Cost of attendance is $25, which is payable online at incubators.bcc.edu/crowdfunding (click “Add to Cart” at bottom of page). The seminar includes a question and answer session, giveaways and light refreshments.
