About This Class

Crowdfunding is the raising of funds from people who have passion about your idea. This often includes giving back a reward or “perk.” Crowdfunding is not a new concept (did you know To Kill a Mockingbird was crowdfunded?), however with the help of new technology, crowdfunding is becoming the go-to way for people to get their ideas and businesses off the ground. But how does it work? And how can it work for you?

As a tool that harnesses the power of your network (and beyond), a crowdfunding campaign can do a lot more for you than just raise money. It is a great way to address a lot of questions entrepreneurs face when getting off the ground, including:

  • Gauging demand and mitigating risk
  • Testing your marketing
  • Extra promotion
  • Data capture
  • Real-world learning

Through this workshop, you will learn the basic components of a successful crowdfunding campaign through examples and data, and how to avoid some common pitfalls. 

You will leave the class more confident in your ability to craft a successful campaign.

About Your Teacher

Kate Drane believes in the power of "we" over "me." Crowdfunding is a perfect demonstration of this. Last fall she ran a campaign for her small business The Can Van, which helped her to hone her skills and understanding of crowdfunding. Additionally, she is lucky enough to live and breathe crowdfunding everyday in her day job as an Engagement Lead for Entrepreneurship at Indiegogo. Every week she interacts with dozens of entrepreneurs and community leaders to train them how to use this resource more effectively. In addition, she is an organizer of SoupSF, which brings crowdfunding to the community level, connecting great local projects directly with their neighbors who want to see it thrive.

Classes @ PARISOMA

Here at PARISOMA, we believe in open-sourcing the startup journey. Our vast ecosystem includes 120 members, over 300 alumni, and over 50 mentors and teachers from a variety of fields.

Education is a big part of what we do here. We host over 150 classes every year, with a curriculum that’s accessible to startups and individuals at any stage of the startup journey. Our classroom is a place of active learning, of problem solving, and of lively discussion. Students will walk away not only with new ideas, but with new skills. Above all, they should walk away with a roadmap for putting these skills into practice.

PARISOMA is a space where ideas meet execution, where working and learning become one in the same.
