Do you have a brilliant product/project in the early stages of development, but lack the funds necessary to grow? Crowdfunding is the ideal solution for entrepreneurs to gain access to funds, presell their product, and receive early market validation from the exposure to thousands of people all over the world. Project creators raise funds without giving equity away.

This event will guide you through the process of launching a crowdfunding campaign, while exploring the effective methods necessary for creating awareness and reaching your fundraising goal.

Funding for early stage, innovative products is scarce and entrepreneurs often find themselves in desperate need of capital to jumpstart their projects. Since 98% of the business plans received by accredited investors and VC’s are rejected, options are limited. With U.S. banks posting the sharpest decline in private lending since 1942, even loans are hard to come by. Crowdfunding has become the best solution to this problem.

This event will be lead by industry experts Alejandro Cremades and Tanya Prive, Founders of Rock The Post, the leading crowdfunding platform for funding entrepreneurs and innovation.

Agenda *6-8pm EDT
6:00 PM – 6:15 PM: Registration + Cold Beer
6:15 PM – 7:15 PM: Crowdfunding discussion (techniques to run successful campaigns)
7:15 PM – 8:00 PM: Networking with Rock The Post Founders (speak about your project/product)
