Kickstarter Training with Stephanie Pereira
Wednesday, October 2, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM (EDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Do you have a storytelling idea or project that could use some monetary support? Crowdfunding portals like Kickstarter make it possible to fund creative projects by appealing to people who pitch in to help you turn your ideas into reality, and journalism and media projects are now starting to get funded. Just ask Syracuse University sophomore Luke Rafferty, who used Kickstarter in the spring to raise over $6,300 to launch The Timeless Artisans.
But getting funded through Kickstarter requires more than just an idea. You may be wondering: what kinds of pitch videos work best? How should you set up your rewards? How do you budget your campaign so that you can launch your site or service, and also deliver the rewards you promise?
Get answers to these questions and more in a webinar from Kickstarter’s Stephanie Pereira on Wednesday, October at 2 at 6 p.m. Sign up here for free to watch online, and we'll send you a reminder and a link when the event is happening. You can attend the webinar on YouTube from any computer. (If you're an SU student and want to attend in person, contact Professor Dan Pacheco at firstname.lastname@example.org to attend a watching party at the S.I. Newhouse school -- with free pizza!)
If you attend, please tweet your questions for Stephanie to @JournovationSU during the session. We’ll be monitoring our Twitter feed during that time and will pose as many questions as possible to Stephanie during the webinar.
This event is hosted by Kick it Up, a new crowdfunding training and acceleration program at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications.
