Event Details

As the global crowdfunding partner of the Local Food Startup Challenge StartSomeGood is hosting a webinar specifically for local food startups interested in learning more about how crowdfunding can help you launch and grow your enterprise. You do not have to be participating in the challenge to sign up, but if you're a local food startup you really should think about signing up.

Sometimes it seems like crowdfunding is just for new digital devices, iPhone covers and games. But crowdfunding is a powerful tool to launch local food startups, allowing you to raise capital and increase awareness of your enterprise in an exciting, community-based way.

This webinar, led by StartSomeGood co-founder Tom Dawkins, will introduce you to both the theory and practice of crowd funding, dispelling misconceptions, exploring case-studies and giving you the knowledge you need to successfully launch or expand your food startup.

Enterprises participating in the Local Food Startup Challenge get additional promotional support and 20% off platform fees at StartSomeGood.
