Join Be Social Change for our next Social Good Startup Stories featuring in-depth conversations with four organizations who have recently gone through the experience of creating a crowdfunding campaign.

This event is perfect for those wanting to learn about what it takes to set up a crowd funding campaign and also learn about how social entrepreneurs are tackling some of the world’s most pressing social and environmental problems.
