Event Details

Creating Successful Crowd Funding Campaigns: What You Need to Know

When an entrepreneur hears the words 'Kickstarter' or 'IndieGoGo', they think ‘wow, this is a great way to raise funds with no angels or VCs, presell my game, and spread the word about my goals and ambitions.” But, could it be a whole lot more, or less? 

Come hear from game developers who have raised money on Kickstarter or other crowd funding platforms, as well as representatives from the crowd funding platforms themselves and industry analysts.  Learn about what it takes to have a successful crowd funding program, the benefits, and the downsides of operating in such an open environment. Our panel, which includes Mike Vorhaus of Frank N. Magid Associates (moderator), John Vaskis of Indiegogo, Dan Silvers of the Boston Festival of Indie Games and Lantana Games, Joshua A.C. Newman of Mobile Frame Zero / glyphpress and others will discuss what an entrepreneur needs for a successful kickstarter, who should or should NOT try crowd funding, and what is the real cost in time and money of a crowd funding campaign. 

Come early or stay late to enjoy light appetizers / drinks and to network with your peers. The event will be held on Thursday, May 30th from 6pm – 9pm at the Microsoft NERD Center (One Memorial Drive, Cambridge).

Event sponsored by Microsoft New England Research & Development Center; Adobe; Morse, Barnes-Brown & Pendleton; FableVision and Becker.
