Crowdfunding/Alternative Financing Strategies for Your Business


​Crowdfunding is a fast growing source of funds for early stage companies. Crowdfunding is becoming more significant than venture capital in terms of dollars invested in early stage companies.

This seminar will discuss the latest trends in crowdfunding, and how companies are raising capital and finding customers using the various funding platforms available.

Recently implemented Regulation CF rules allow companies to raise equity from small investors up to a total of $1 million per year. We will discuss how this market has evolved, and who has been successful and why.

The elements of successful campaigns will be discussed, as well as "how to" tips for your campaign.

We will cover the following categories of crowdfunding:

• Rewards-based
• Donation based
• Debt based
• Equity Based

This seminar is made possible by the generous support of the Berkeley Library Foundation.
