Startup in Los Angeles? Try Crowdfunding

Coming up this week, I’m teaching a crowdfunding class at General Assembly. It’s Thursday 29 May from 7:30-9PM. If you’re curious about crowdfunding and want to see what it’s all about, this is the class for you.

I’ll be covering:

Is your project crowdfundable? Who will want to give you money? Why are campaigns successful? Why is a crowdfunding video important?

The class will be at General Assembly, at the hub of the startup community in Los Angeles. (It shares offices with Startup LA.)  If you’re looking for seed money for your startup, why not think about crowdfunding to get you there?

Here are the takeaways you’ll get from the class:

Learn how to create an online culture to support your campaign Find out the six rules for crowdfunding success Know how to avoid the top crowdfunding fails Go deep in analysis of successful Kickstarter and IndieGoGo campaigns

We’ll do some fun brainstorming in class and I’ll have a workbook for you to help you get to the next steps. Here’s a sign up link:
