Launching a Crowdfunding Campaign

Saturday, August 27 @ 11:45 am - 12:45 pm • Organized By Invent-ED Network Connection
3400 Pershall Rd, Ferguson, MO 63135-1408


Before you launch your first crowdfunding page on Kickstarter®, Indiegogo®, GoFundMe®, there are many factors you need to know. Without this knowledge, you could put your invention at risk in more ways than one. Explore several crowdfunding websites, review past and present pages launched by inventors, and discuss factors to consider prior to launch. Find the best crowdfunding fit for your new idea. Learn about the risks with crowdfunding pages (with or without a patent) and the many components involved in setting up and managing a new or launched page. Examine what happens if your campaign succeeds or fails.
