Tickets Now Available for Dollars & $ense - Crowdfunding: How To Fund Your Big, Bold Ideas
Mar 31, 2014 | News

Do you have a great new business idea but no money to start it? If so, you can't afford to miss WURD's April 10 interactive panel discussion on Crowdfunding, the hottest way to raise money to turn your dream into reality.

 

*************************************************

Whether it's Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or Rockethub, these funding strategies provide companies with a unique opportunity to bridge what is termed “the Black entrepreneurial gap” -- the notion that Black entrepreneurs start businesses at higher rates than others, but lag behind in owning sustainable operational businesses. Lack of capital is the main reason.

At Dollars & $ense - Crowdfunding: How To Fund Your Big, Bold Ideas, you'll learn how to create a successful crowdfunding campaign to raise money to launch or build your business. Presented in partnership with Philly Tech Week and Wilco Electronic Systems, at this workshop you'll get hands-on advice from people who have created successful campaigns that have raised tens of thousands of dollars.
