3 Day Startup Work-Along Web Series: Essentials of Crowdfunding
About this Class
Entrepreneurs, artists, scientists, and other social leaders are more connected to their audience and networks than ever before. Modern social networking makes reaching out simple and virtually free, while the costs of production and distribution have decreased. Meanwhile, the old-guard institutions such as record labels and newspapers are suffering.
Now a new movement has hit critical mass, impacting both business and creativity.
Crowdfunding is the foundation of this new creative economy. So what is crowdfunding? In a nutshell, it is leveraging networks for funds, awareness, and feedback. Crowdfunding is based on the belief that the power of many small contributions in aggregate can become significant. Successful crowdfunding campaigns combine the emotional power of traditional patronage with the massive reach of digital communication.
