Do you have a great new business idea but no money to start it? If so, you can't afford to miss WURD's 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 Black companies a unique opportunity to bridge what is termed â€œthe black entrepreneurial gap,â€ the notion that Black entrepreneurs start businesses at higher rates, but lag behind in owning sustainable operational businesses.
Lack of capital is the main reason.
In this workshop 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 panel you'll get hands-on advice from people who have created successful campaigns that have raised tens of thousands of dollars.
