May the crowd be with you!
Come and learn how crowdfunding works and how you can mobilise the “Power of the Crowd”. Presented by Silicon Beach Crowdfunding partner, iPledg.
Please note this event just “pivoted” to a sponsored event
We decided to test the effectiveness of using a crowdfunding platform for ticketing our events. While we had 40+ RSVPs after 3 weeks, we had only 6 pledges (less than 40% of the target). So just like a true startup, we listened to the community and put on sponsorship rewards and encouraged our sponsors to pledge. We are happy to report that within minutes we had two returning sponsors, Foundr magazine & Fostr Funding. Those and few other smaller pledges took the pledges to 91% of the target. We are now confident of meeting the target by midday on 22nd August when the campaign ends.
You will notice on the left of this page we have ended all sponsorships. This is your chance to join Foundr & Fostr as a valued supporter of Silicon Beach. Sponsorship is one way of showing you support to this wonderful community of startups, small businesses, professionals and service providers who supply the community with products and services. The campaign will be open for your pledges till midday Saturday Aug 22 (the day of this event).
Please note you don’t have to be able to attend this event on 22nd August to become a sponsor. We will promote your business on the day and your logo and listing will go on the meetup pages. Your financial contribution will provide the seed funding needed for specific Silicon Beach projects (eg. SB TV, SB Radio, SB School of Startup, SB Internships, SB Member Directory, SB mobile apps, opening of Silicon Beach communities in regional towns etc). To keep things fresh, all new sponsorships will be limited to 1 – 3 months and will be available only via Crowdfunding campaigns such as this one.
Have you got what it takes to be a great entrepreneur? The concept of “paying it forward” is what has made Silicon Valley so successful as an eco-system. Let’s do the same here. If you have benefitted from Silicon Beach in anyway, we are giving you an opportunity to pay it forward.
RSVP on this meetup page for entry to the crowdfunding workshop. Pledging to attend is no longer required but if you feel an overwhelming desire to support the community that keeps on supporting you, don’t ignore that feeling. Please go ahead and pledge 😉
Thank you to those of you who pledged already, you are awesome!
