The Foundry Presents: A Kickstarter Masterclass

Posted on

Sometimes when you have a great business idea you simply can’t find the funds. The fear is, someone else that DOES will steal the idea & get started ahead of you and you will never get the opportunity to bring your great idea to fruition.  That’s where Kickstarter or other crowdfunding platforms may come in.
The Foundry is therefore delighted to host business advisor Rosemary Morrison’s (Directus Training & Consultancy), who will walk & talk you through the process of Kickstarter & tell you how she succeeded in getting her children’s book to market in her #pupstoprint Kickstarter campaign!

What You Will Learn

In this masterclass we will be covering topics including:

  • The different types of Crowdfunding platforms
  • The Kickstarter “Basics” – The process & rules
  • The steps for success
  • The “Do’s” & “Don’ts” of marketing the campaign
  • The VITAL preparation pre launch
  • Rosemary will also discuss hers & another campaign that she assisted as well as some failures..

Who Should Attend?

Anyone who wants to explore how Kickstarter can help provide the vital funds to get your product to market.
