You are invited you to a CrowdFunding session with Amy Lesnick, Head of Social Innovation at Indiegogo.
Are you a tech founder with a dream? Are you a social entrepreneur with a bold vision for social change? If so, then you are well aware that what often stands between a great innovative idea and its execution is financing!
With greater and greater frequency, crowdfunding has been filling the money gap. Beyond the dollar, crowdfunding has enabled start-ups to demonstrate a market for their products, gain valuable rapid customer feedback, cultivate customer advocates, and increase awareness for their brand and offering. On the Social innovation front, crowdfunding empowers individuals around the world to participate in something bigger than themselves and take ownership in the projects they believe in.
* Indiegogo is the largest global open crowdfunding platform, empowering anyone, anywhere, anytime, to raise funds for any idea.
